Kelly-Moore Introduces KM Professional Water-Oil Hybrid

Published on 2010-06-04. Author : SpecialChem

SAN CARLOS, Calif. -- Kelly-Moore Paint Company, Inc., a leader and innovator of waterborne-coating technology and the first company to offer recycled paints, introduces KM Professional Water-Oil Hybrid, a low-VOC, high-quality interior/exterior alkyd enamel that is durable and can be cleaned up with just water. Available at all Kelly-Moore stores, KM Professional Water-Oil Hybrid comes in three decorative sheens - satin, semi-gloss and gloss - as well as a primer/undercoater, and can be tinted to many custom colors.

Consisting of a primer and enamels made with alkyd resins that are suspended in water, the Water-Oil Hybrid offers the easy application and workability expected from alkyd enamel but allows for the easy cleanup without mineral spirits typically associated with oil-based paints.

KM Professional Water-Oil Hybrid is a low-VOC product that emits little odor when applying and demonstrates excellent sealing and surface penetration properties, with great flow and leveling, and cured hardness of the alkyd finish. It is best suited for interior and exterior surfaces that require a high quality, durable finish. Its resistance to fingerprints and skin-oil softening, and marring and chipping from jewelry, make it a good option especially for kitchens, windows and doors, and exterior garage doors.

"As 'The Painter's Paint Store,' we are committed to helping professionals get great results on all painting projects," said Mark Zielinski, Kelly-Moore Paints VP business development. "The unique formula of the Water-Oil Hybrid offers the forgiveness of an alkyd enamel but cleans up with water, and it stays open longer, allowing painters to go back and smooth out any imperfections before the paint dries."

KM Professional Water-Oil Hybrid is available in one and five gallon containers, and quarts, and can be brushed, rolled and sprayed. It has excellent stain-blocking qualities and is easy to sand. It can be used on properly primed or previously painted interior or exterior wood, metal and other sound surfaces.
