Vermont Natural Coatings - Exterior Wood Finish

Coatings & Sealants

  • Clear transparent finish creates a non-toxic waterproof barrier
  • Durable coating for decks, fences, side and more protects against damaging UV rays
  • Withstands mold and mildew
  • Low VOC content
  • Recoatable after an hour, so it can be finished in one day!
  • Made from a renewable resource (Whey)

Vermont Natural Coatings uses whey protein as the primary bonding agent. Whey is a natural byproduct of cheese-making, and a renewable resource.

Vermont Natural Coatings PolyWhey Exterior Wood Finish provides a tough, element-repelling clear finish for decks, fences and other outdoor surfaces. By using the strength of natural whey proteins and water-based resins, Vermont Natural Coatings for Exteriors is waterproof and provides protection against mildew, mold and harmful UV rays. A neutral odor, excellent flow, great coverage, quick drying, and easy clean-up with soap and water make PolyWhey a durable, environmentally smart finish for all your exterior wood surfaces.

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.

Use PolyWhey Exterior Wood Finish on exterior wood decks, fences, siding, railings, outdoor furniture and other wood surfaces. May be used on new wood, pressure-treated wood, weathered wood, and previously coated wood. Must sand and remove any existing finish and/or paint.

  • Made from a rapidly renewable resource

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

PolyWhey natural finishes have excellent flow, which makes them easy to apply with a brush or spray gun. If you’re applying to previously finished wood, be sure to sand off the existing finish before applying PolyWhey.

For best performance apply 2 coats. One gallon will cover approximately 200-400 square feet.
