Our finishes are now even more green
We’ve always used low VOC finishes for our modern kids furniture, and today we’re taking another step forward in becoming more natural and more eco-friendly.
What makes Sodura’s finish a Green product?
The toxic components that are traditionally found in wood finish are displaced with recycled whey protein, which produces a finish with a neutral oder that’s safe for pets and kids. Whey is a renewable resource and a natural by-product of the dairy industry. This use of a natural product in our professional finishes produces low VOCs, and better indoor air quality. By using the whey in furniture finishes we are also keeping it from ending up in the waterways. So, it is green in two different ways, first being much safer than traditional finishes and also by recycling the leftover whey from the cheese making process.
Why is our new finish better than other water-based furniture finishes?
It has greater durability, with a cured hardness that is twice that of the average water-based finish. It also has 25% less VOC content than the standard that most water-based finishes try to meet. Our newly formulated finish accomplishes this by using whey, a natural, renewable resource, as its bonding agent.
