Brighton, CO (Vocus) May 1, 2008
Sashco Sealants, a Colorado based manufacturer of coatings and sealants, has been nominated within the category of stains and finishes for the 2008 GREEN LOG Home & Lifestyle AwardsÂ.
Sashco Sealants specializes in manufacturing high-performance finishing products for log homes that include fully compatible stains, caulks, and chinking.
Transformation StainÂ, SashcoÂs newest addition to their stain line is formulated with resins based on renewable resources, such as safflower, linseed, and Tung oil, rather than petroleum-based chemicals. Transformation StainÂ is also available in a VOC compliant formula. The Transformation StainÂ VOC compliant formula utilizes a solvent that is non-photochemically reactive, so it does not generate ground level smog. Sashco took special care when formulating Transformation StainÂ for long-term durability and performance to decrease the frequency and need to re-apply, or re-stain so as often as other stains on the market. Longer durability results in reduced product consumption and the resulting waste. To further reduce waste, Transformation StainÂ is packaged in fully recyclable metal pails.
Many of SashcoÂs products including the Capture & Cascade stain system, and sealants like Log Builder, Log Jam, ChinkerÂs Edge, and Conceal are all totally water based products that offer earth, animal and human friendly water-clean up without the use of mineral spirits or other harsh chemicals that pollute the air, ground, and water and are toxic to both humans and animals.
Wayne Summons, Vice President & Technical Director at Sashco Sealants explained that, ÂWe are thrilled about this important nomination, and are proud to be included amongst companies who are committed to providing environmentally responsible products. While we have more to do to make overall improvements in making all of our products green, we are committed to offering our customers the highest quality products that theyÂre accustomed to from Sashco, while also helping to contribute to building a greener world.Â
