Wood Kote Announces Addition of Ultra Low VOC Wipe-On Polyurethane

Wood Kote has reformulated Jel'd Poly Kote to meet the Southern California VOC requirements for architectural coatings. The reformulation completes Wood Kote's line of ultra low VOC solvent-based clear wood finishes.

Portland, Oregon February 1, 2008 Wood Kote Products Inc. has a new ultra low VOC formulation for its wipe-on polyurethane sold under the trade name, Jel'd Poly Kote 275. The product is an easy to apply, fast drying, low build clear wood finish intended for interior applications. Jel'd Poly Kote 275 can be applied with a cloth, requires no sanding and can be re-coated within 2-4 hours. Jel'd Poly Kote 275 does not run or drip and therefore is often used on overhead work and on intricate surfaces such as stairway railings and balusters.

Jel'd Poly Kote 275 contains less than 275 grams per liter of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC). Coatings with lower VOC levels are associated with the reduction of ground-level ozone. The product is available in one sheen, matte, however, the gloss level will increase with each successive re-coat. It should be applied 1-2 mils per application. Generally, three to six applications of Jel'd Poly Kote 275 will equal one brush-on coat of polyurethane.

Jel'd Poly Kote 275 joins the family of other Wood Kote ultra low solvent-based polyurethanes including Ultra Poly Kote 275, Flagship UV 275 and FloorEver 275. Wood Kote also manufactures water-based polyurethanes with a VOC level of less than 250 grams per liter and are sold under the Clear and Clean trademark. These products are formulated to be used with Wood Kote's extensive line of ultra low VOC pigment stains and glazes and with VOC exempt dye stains.

Wood Kote Products Inc formulated many of its products to meet the requirements of the ( California ) South Coast Air Quality Management District. Many other regions throughout the world are adopting similar regulations. Architects and specifiers are voluntarily selecting low VOC coatings as their contribution toward a cleaner and better environment.
