High Solids Coatings

To achieve better coverage, we use higher solids. Better coverage means lower costs — lower product costs, shipping costs and lower application costs. Sherwin-Williams offers high-volume solids, with a reduction of solvent content in excess of 60%, to provide higher coverage rate with less waste.
