General Finishes, the Wisconsin based manufacturer of award winning waterborne wood finishes for the fine furniture and woodworking markets, recently announced the development of a new waterborne product -- Exterior 450.

Designed for exterior wood applications, Exterior 450 water based clear varnish provides wood with a tough, protective finish that will withstand the rigors of the sun, rain, and wind. Ideal for wooden outdoor furniture, doors, carvings and signs, Exterior 450 is fortified with UV absorbers to help minimize fading and maximize performance. Plus, the built-in mildewcide retards mold and mildew growth.

Water based Exterior 450 not only is tough and flexible but also will resist the expansion and contraction of the wood through the hot summers and cold winters that typically cause cracking and peeling. Available in Satin and Semi-Gloss, it flows well and dries rapidly to a clear finish.

Bill Turner of Fontana, WI, who field tested this new product reported, "One year after applying 450 to my outdoor patio picnic table, it still looks freshly finished."

Waterbased finishes, like the new Exterior 450, are superior to their oil solvent finish sisters and do not involve the hazards of combustible oil finishes. Waterborne finishes offer several benefits, such as shorter drying times, less odor, easier clean up, and less exposure to volatile organic compounds, making them healthier for the user and the environment.
