Share Article

Builders and dealers have access to new trim and fascia distribution offering that protects against the elements.

Armor Coat's state-of-the-art, water-borne acrylic primer enhances performance

We’re looking forward to working with iLevel

To continue providing builders and dealers with ready access to leading structural frame products, exterior finishing materials, and other building supplies, iLevel by Weyerhaeuser is now distributing Armor Coat™ trim and fascia. The factory-primed, water-borne acrylic coated whitewood product made by Belco Forest Products is an aesthetic, durable alternative to traditional alkyd-coated trim.

Armor Coat’s two-coat formula provides superior protection against the elements. The first coat includes borate and inhibitor solutions applied directly to the wood fiber, rather than mixed in with the primer. This allows the treatment to fully penetrate the lumber rather than just the primed surface area to better protect against termites, fungal decay and mold. The second coat is a state-of-the-art, water-borne acrylic primer that includes enhanced resin content for increased primer performance. The acrylic primer emits 87 percent less VOCs than typical alkyd-based primers, and is less susceptible to chronic decay. Belco Forest Products backs Armor Coat trim and fascia with a 20-year limited warranty.

“Armor Coat has all the attributes builders and dealers are looking for in trim and fascia products,” says Reed Brunson, National Product Manager for iLevel. “It’s manufactured by a reliable company, is designed to stand the test of time and uses a water-based acrylic primer to significantly reduce VOC emissions. On top of that, it looks good.”

“We’re looking forward to working with iLevel,” says Jason Staley, National Sales Manager for Belco Forest Products. “Belco’s goal of providing quality and value to the trim and fascia market is realized through partnerships with world class supply chain managers like iLevel. They’ve got unmatched distribution capabilities in the building industry and their sales team and technical experts are trusted by builders and dealers.”
