White painted factory finish now available on all pine products, wood or clad
Warroad, Minn., April 26, 2011 – Marvin Windows and Doors is living up to its “Built around you” promise by offering a factory-applied painted interior finish on all pine window and door products.
All pine Marvin windows and doors – both wood and clad – will be available in the factory-applied, White Painted Interior Finish option.
“Our customers asked for this option, and we heard them,” said Bill Boyd, product planner for Marvin Windows and Doors. “Our factory-applied painted interior finish is beautiful, durable and more environmentally friendly than on-site painting.”
The Marvin factory uses state of the art spray equipment to minimize any paint overspray or waste. VOC’s (volatile organic compounds) are captured and filtered to minimize impact to the environment. That makes the factory finish “greener” than a finish that’s applied on the jobsite.
The new finish option lets builders, remodelers and homeowners enjoy the many benefits of factory-applied paint:
- Convenience: Eliminates the mess and time associated with painting windows at the job site – and ends the logistics hassle of having them painted off-site.
- Durability: Our factory-applied paint topcoat meets or exceeds standards of the Window and Door Manufacturers Association (WDMA TM 14-09 standards).
- Integrated prime/paint system: A primer and paint system designed to work together for exceptional durability and paint adhesion.
- Environmentally friendly: The water-based enamel primer and paint have zero Volatile Hazardous Air Pollutants (VHAPs) and low Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs).
Marvin’s White Painted Interior Finish will be introduced by region across the United States beginning in April and continue through the summer.
“We expect this to become a very popular option,” Boyd said. “Expanding our range of factory-applied finishes makes for one less item that builders, remodelers and homeowners will need to worry about during their projects.”
