ECOS WoodShield Varnish

A UNIQUE NON-TOXIC1 POLYURETHANE (POLY) CLEAR COAT EQUIVALENT

Everyone complains about fumes and strong odors from polyurethane after floors and cabinets have been coated and the headaches, breathing issues, or nausea that it causes.

People leave their homes for days to avoid the worst, throw out contaminated food when they return and spend weeks afterwards washing and cleaning everything to try to get rid of the smell.

That’s typical of polyurethane, poly, or traditional clear coat - to give you its various names.

ECOS WoodShield Varnish is different, totally different. Imagine being able to coat a floor or cabinet and preparing dinner in the same room. What about watching the TV while the contractor applies the finish around your couch. That’s ECOS WoodShield Varnish to give you its proper name. What is so different about ECOS WoodShield Varnish?

ECO FRIENDLY POLY

Unlike traditional polyurethanes (poly, shellac, or clear coat) even many of those labeled as “environmentally friendly”, ECOS WoodShield Varnish is non-toxic and has no traditional paint (polyurethane) odor, which can cause headaches, nausea, and respiratory issues.

PREMIUM QUALITY PERFORMANCE

ECOS WoodShield Varnish has all the important clear coat (polyurethane, shellac, or poly) qualities. Our water based varnish is extremely hard wearing, has great clarity, and comes in a variety of sheens. Like polyurethanes, coverage is between 400 and 500 square feet per gallon, and drying times are quicker than traditional clear coats. ECOS WoodShield Varnish can be applied using a lamb’s wool applicator, high quality synthetic brush, pad or spray - just like a poly. And, you can use our varnish where you would use a clear coat – on floors, furniture, woodwork, cabinets and doors.

THE ECOS WOODSHIELD VARNISH ADVANTAGE

As the world’s best environmentally friendly clear coat, ECOS WoodShield Varnish has a truly outstanding premium quality performance. We use only the finest ingredients and don’t water down our product with cheap solvents. With no odor renovated rooms can be returned to use quicker, families don’t have to endure the headaches, nausea and respiratory issues common with traditional polyurethanes and clean-up is simple and minimal. Altogether, easy to choose, easy to apply and easy to live with.
