Emerald® Interior/Exterior Waterbased Urethane Trim Enamel
Sherwin-Williams has expanded the Emerald family of products, its finest interior and exterior paints, with the new Emerald® Interior/Exterior Waterbased Urethane Trim Enamel. It’s perfect for cabinet, door and trim projects where hardness, adhesion and durability are primary considerations. Emerald Urethane Trim Enamel delivers the look and feel of an oil-based enamel with the convenience of a waterbased formula. Not only does it perform well inside, it has excellent color and gloss retention for exterior applications. The new product will be available in the first quarter of 2017.
“My take on the new Emerald Urethane trim Enamel paint. I've used it twice now on cabinets, but, only in light colors. Comparing it to Pro classic; I can tell it's more durable, does not sag as readily, and it has a nice finishing coat like an oil based product. The urethane makes it suitable for exterior as well. (Basically it's pro industrial WB alkyd urethane.) I strongly believe it's way overpriced though, and the dry time is a little long than the pro classic, which makes it hard for a quick turn-around. Which is why I docked it a star. All-in-all it's a great paint, but I'm definitely not ready to make the switch from PC. (Will consider when I can get it for much cheaper).”
“First time using it. Was looking for a better product for cabinets. I've used several SW products before and haven't found the perfect one yet. I got a real nice price on the emerald ureathane, so I figured I would give it a shot. Repainted some white cabinets with it. Sanded all the cabinets down real nice. Used a quarter inch white dove roller cover. Finish product came out real nice. I used the semi gloss which didn't have much sheen at all, but had a nice finish to it. Would recommend.”
