High Quality and Value Earn Olympic Paints Another Presitgious Honor

Since 1938, Olympic Paints and Stains have helped homeowners protect and beautify their homes. The consistently high quality and value of Olympic Paints and Stains, from PPG Industries (NYSE:PPG), has helped the brand to become America's most trusted paints and stains, with a wide, rich selection of colors and finishes as well as technological innovations such as, low-odor, zero-VOC formulas.

In addition to the trust of homeowners across the United States, Olympic coatings have earned another prestigious honor - the Good Housekeeping Seal. Joining Olympic Paints, which was granted the Good Housekeeping Seal in early 2009, the entire Olympic Exterior Stains line of Maximum sealants and stains, as well as Olympic Wood Protector sealants and stains, will carry the consumer-trusted Good Housekeeping Seal beginning in spring 2010.

First issued to products in 1909 by the Good Housekeeping Research Institute, the Good Housekeeping Seal is one of the most important and trusted guides in consumer buying. The widely recognized Seal is an emblem of the long-trusted magazine's promise that all products bearing the Seal have been evaluated by the scientists, engineers, nutritionists and researchers at the Good Housekeeping Research Institute and are backed by a two-year limited warranty. The warranty states that if the product proves to be defective within two years from the date it was first sold to a consumer by an authorized retailer, Good Housekeeping will replace the product or refund the purchase price.

Olympic Maximum exterior wood stains not only add warmth and dimension to outdoor living areas by enhancing the color and texture of wood, but they contain advanced UV protection and the manufacturer's best mildew-resistant coating to help protect wood from the elements, as well as inhibit the growth of mold and mildew, which can cause warping, cracking and splitting. With a variety of sealants and stains in a wide array of colors, Olympic Exterior Stains makes it easy for homeowners to select a color that will complement their home's existing features. Olympic Maximum exterior wood sealants and stains include:

  • Clear - provides a clear finish that allows the wood to weather naturally and is guaranteed for two years on decks and three years on vertical surfaces, such as fences and siding.
  • Toner - offers a slight tint of color that maintains or restores the natural beauty of wood and is guaranteed for three years on decks and five years on vertical surfaces.
  • Semi-transparent - adds a subtle color to wood while still allowing the wood's natural grain and texture to show through. Guaranteed for five years on decks and seven years on vertical surfaces.
  • Solid - provides a rich, opaque color that allows the texture of the wood to show and is guaranteed for eight years on decks and 20 years on vertical surfaces.
