Vermont Natural Coatings’ patented natural wood finish formula is an important
advance over existing water-based finishes in application, quality, and environmental
- VNC's PolyWhey natural finishes are tough - scratch, chemical, and water
resistant - dry quickly, and do not yellow.
- VNC's PolyWhey natural finishes surpass the strictest In-Door Air Quality
standards with VOC levels below 180g/L (grams per liter).
easy to apply with a brush, spray gun, or lambs wool.
- VNC's PolyWhey natural finishes have excellent flow, which makes them
Our cans are made with post consumer materials which can be recycled.
The development of PolyWhey helps reduce dependence on petroleum-based
products and turns a by-product into a new natural product.
Turning a Waste into a Product
Whey, a by-product of cheese making, has a high BOD (biochemical oxygen demand)
that can increase the burden on waste treatment facilities a nd can pollute rivers,
lakes, and even the ocean. Over the last decade, this by-product has been used to
create valuable products such as high-protein “energy bars” infant formula, and as a
film coating for food-safe packaging. By reformulating whey into a durable, natural
wood finish, a potential waste product is taken out of the waste stream and put to a
Turning Away from Petroleum
The production of oil-based wood finishes and other coatings, such as paint, have
relied solely on petroleum – a non-renewable resource. PolyWhey is derived from a
renewable resource and in a small way helps to reduce dependence on oil, contributing
to a more sustainable world.
