Sansin Introduces New Eco-Tone™ Color System for Its Purity® Interior Enviro Stain; Safer, Far Less Toxic Alternative to Traditional Dyes

Published on 2010-05-12. Author : SpecialChem

KNOXVILLE, TN and STRATHROY, ON -- Sansin Corporation, a leader in researching and developing environmentally friendly interior and exterior wood stains for a quarter century, announced the introduction of its new Eco-Tone™ Color System, a color additive for its Purity® Interior 0-VOC base wood stain that delivers dye-like color with a fraction of the toxicity found in conventional, solvent-based dyes.

"The challenge for our industry has been that no matter how low in volatile organic compounds (VOCs) you get the base stain, you will see a dramatic increase in VOC content -- sometimes as much as 100% -- once color is added," said Sjoerd Bos, Vice President of Sansin Corporation. "This is why we've developed our own color system -- to give customers an amazing color palette without the spike in toxins."

Sansin's new Eco-Tone™ Colors use pure pigments, ground so fine they are able to combine with the Purity 0-VOC Base for a more sustainable 'green' alternative to traditional dyes. Once applied to a home interior, they penetrate deeply, pulling the pigmentation down into the wood for color that is so vibrant and crisp it has to be seen to be believed.

Eco-Tone™ Colors are meant to be used with Sansin's new Purity® Interior Zero VOC Penetrating Stain (0-VOC), the first water-based interior wood stain with a base free from any harmful VOCs that penetrates both soft and hard woods with consistent, uniform coverage.

Sansin's Purity® Interior Zero VOC Stain delivers the following features:

  • Zero VOCs
  • Little to no odor
  • Ease of application, with the choice of a wipe or spray stain
  • Fast dry time, allowing coating with Sansin's Interior Clears after only 15 minutes
  • Minimum pigment transfer upon top coating
  • Excellent penetration
  • Excellent lapping performance
  • Extremely uniform appearance, even on maple
  • Available in a new line of 16 Eco-Tone™ colors, which deliver the vibrancy and richness of dyes without the high toxicity.
