The Sherwin-Williams Company has reformulated its Harmony Paint to reduce airborne concentrations of formaldehyde and other aldehydes.

The revamped, zero-VOC interior acrylic latex paint is reported to improve indoor air quality. The paint "helps reduce the levels of these volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from potential sources like insulation, carpet, cabinets, fabrics and other building materials," according to the Cleveland, OH-based company.

The reformulated Harmony acrylic latex paint features technology to reduce VOCs from potential sources like cabinets and carpet, the company says.

Harmony Paint is recommended for office environments, new construction, renovation projects, and other locations where elevated airborne concentrations of formaldehyde may be present, according to Karl Schmitt, vice president of marketing, Sherwin-Williams.    

Other Features, Properties

The paint also features improved hide and durability and can withstand frequent cleanings, Sherwin-Williams says.

The new formulation offers anti-microbial properties to inhibit the growth of mildew on the paint film and has reduced odor during application and drying when compared to conventional coatings, the company notes.

Harmony is tinted with ColorCast Ecotoner colorants that do not add VOCs to the tinted paint, Sherwin-Williams says. The product is GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified and GREENGUARD Certified for Children and Schools.

The company says enhanced Harmony Paint will be available in flat and eggshell in April and semi-gloss by mid-summer 2013.
