Vermont Natural Coatings uses whey protein as the primary bonding agent. Whey is a natural byproduct of cheese-making, and a renewable resource. It makes for a very low-VOC wood finish, which means better indoor air quality for you.


When cured, PolyWhey natural wood finish is twice as hard as the conventional water-based polyurethane products you’ll find at most stores. It dries fast, won’t yellow over time, and there’s no noxious odor. It resists scratches, chemicals, and water, and it’s long-wearing, even in areas with heavy foot traffic.


Compared with traditional polyurethanes, PolyWhey finishes are very pleasant to install and live with because they are low-odor, and there’s no residual smell when the coating is cured. Coverage is better, too: While conventional water-based finishes have an average coating coverage of 300 to 400 square feet per gallon, PolyWhey's coverage is 500-600 square feet per gallon. PolyWhey natural finishes have excellent flow, which makes them easy to apply with a brush, spray gun, or lambs wool.


Vermont Natural Coatings interior finishes are available for wood floors and furniture. The furniture finish comes in gloss, semi-gloss and satin sheens. Floor finish is available in semi-gloss or satin.



    Because it creates a thin, hard film over the wood’s surface, PolyWhey provides a very water-resistant finish. Just dust mop or vacuum regularly and wipe off dirt with a damp mop.


    Like conventional polyurethanes, PolyWhey cannot be spot-repaired; the entire room must be screened or sanded and a new finish coat applied.

    PolyWhey natural finishes have excellent flow, which makes them easy to apply with a brush, spray gun, or lambs wool. If you’re applying them to previously finished wood, be sure to sand off the old finish before applying PolyWhey. However, PolyWhey is compatible with many conventional polyurethane finishes.
