Do You Really Need High Performance Coatings?

In a word: Yes. As a pro painter, you know that coatings aren’t one-size-fits-all. All aspects of every job need to be considered before deciding which paint will best serve the situation, your customer and their budget.

When conditions demand more durability than even premium architectural coatings provide, smart contractors turn to Pro Industrial™ high-performance coatings.

The Pro Industrial line is your ticket to exceeding customer expectations in the commercial, light industrial, healthcare, hospitality, education and multi-family markets. These specially formulated coatings are also useful in high-end residential projects.

Field tested in the real world

For some contractors, certain Pro Industrial coatings are even becoming their go-to product. The Dependable Painting Company in Cleveland, for instance, now prefers to use Pro Industrial Pre-Catalyzed Water Based Epoxy on all its trim and door painting.

“We use it all the time,” says Cindy Friedmann, president of The Dependable Painting Company. “In our opinion that is one of the best paints that Sherwin-Williams manufactures. It’s very durable and flows and hardens like an oil-based paint. Plus, it’s low VOCs.”
