Published on 2011-08-30. Author : SpecialChem

CALIF. and STRATHROY, Canada, -- The Sansin Corporation announced that Fairfax Lumber & Hardware, a 100 percent employee owned business in operation since 1912 and based in Marin County, Calif., will offer its line of interior and exterior environmentally friendly wood coatings and sealants.

Sansin wood finishes qualify as a low and super-compliant coating according to the South Coast Air Quality Management District regulations for architectural coatings (SCAQMD 1113) and meet the newly revised California Proposition 65 (Prop 65) regulations.

Fairfax Lumber & Hardware prides itself on stocking and providing high-quality environmentally friendly alternatives to traditional materials. Sansin stains and finishes are nature friendly interior and exterior wood stain and finish products that deliver rich and vibrant color and apply uniformly while ensuring healthy air standards.

Sansin's Purity® interior liquid and gel stains are zero VOC and use Sansin's new Eco-Tone™ colorant system that delivers dye-like color for interior wood staining with a fraction of the toxicity found in conventional, solvent-based dyes. The Purity® and Glacier interior clear finishes are also zero VOC.

Fairfax Lumber & Hardware will also carry Sansin's line of Enviro Stain exterior wood stains and sealants (DEC™, Classic™, ENS™, and SDF™) at its location at 109 Broadway in Fairfax, Ca. "Fairfax Lumber & Hardware truly believes in offering products that support and promote healthy living spaces. As an employee owned retailer that is active in promoting green building, Fairfax Lumber & Hardware sets an example for green retailing in both its commitment to the environment and delivery of quality customer service," said Sjoerd Bos, Vice President of the Sansin Corporation.
