Redefining floor finishing with exceptional workability,

durability and safety through sustainable practices.


Vermont Natural Coatings has emerged as a leader in the wood finish industry, delivering

easy-to-use products that have established the highest performance and environmental standards.

Vermont Natural Coatings is dedicated to developing non-toxic wood finish technologies that are

grounded in sustainability, easy to use and stand up to the test of time. Born of academic inquiry,

scientific innovation, and Vermont ingenuity, our coatings meet the building industry’s highest

performance and safety standards. Flooring contractors and their customers can feel as good about the

safety of PolyWhey as they do about its performance. Neutral odor and no off gassing of the

cancer-causing ingredients found in traditional floor finishes.

As producers, we are aware that flooring

professionals and builders spend hours working

with our products. That’s why we guarantee that

our products are 100% Red List Free. Our finishes

contain zero cancer-causing carcinogens, no Prop

65 Ingredients, and no NMP. In addition, all of our

products are low VOC.

The Science of PolyWhey: The durability of a wood finish is determined by the strength of its

unique cross linkers. Polymerized whey proteins in PolyWhey provide much stronger cross

linking than solvent-boased and other water borne finishes.

By using whey protein as a co-binder, PolyWhey leverages

a renewable resource to deliver the safest and most durable

paints, stains and finishes on the market.

PolyWhey technology was developed by University of

Vermont scientists who were on a mission to create

environmentally responsible products. Vermont Natural

Coatings President and Founder Andrew Meyer immediately

noticed the potential of this material for coatings, and the

PolyWhey brand was formed.

ClimateCool exemplifies Vermont Natural Coatings’ commitment to a more sustainable and equitable

planet. The Climate Cool symbol means that only the safest, cutting edge ingredients are used in the

product’s manufacture. We use high-quality and sustainable ingredients such as naturally grown hemp

oil, PolyWhey (which utilizes the natural binding power of whey proteins), and Decovery®, a plant-based

resin system for high performance coatings. These ingredients enable us to reduce our dependency on

fossil fuel-based raw materials and help our climate cool.

Whether your concern is about the health of your family and pets, or whether you’re concerned about the

impacts of climate change on our planet, ClimateCool is a way to improve environmental and personal




Vermont Natural Coatings’ commitment to helping create a more sustainable planet begins with our

cutting-edge ingredients; like whey protein-based PolyWhey. Now we introduce All Natural Hemp Oil. Our

Hemp Oil is sourced directly from farmers and is cold pressed, which means no chemicals or solvents are

used to extract the oil. Hemp Oil delivers a beautiful, natural oil tone without any harmful ingredients.

Science has led us to a revolution in sustainable ingredients, including Decovery®, plant-based resins

for high performance coatings that enable us to change our environment without impacting it. By

combining PolyWhey and the unique Decovery product portfolio, we aim at setting a new standard in

sustainable coatings.

Decovery is an eco-friendly paint resin that outperforms other green resins to offer a true alternative to

traditional resins. Decovery resins are made with renewable materials (plant-based ingredients) to reduce

our dependency on fossil fuel-based raw materials. Using these resins in our products helps ensure a

safer, healthier environment that is kinder to people and the planet throughout its lifetime.

PolyWhey is the next generation of water-based polyurethane, a truly unique finish that is naturally

durable, safe and easy-to-use. The PolyWhey formula uses whey protein, a by-product in cheese

manufacturing, to displace the toxic ingredients traditionally used in wood finish by functioning as a

co-binder and solvent. The result is a new category of wood floor finishes with all the durability of oilbased

finish and the application advantages of waterborne finish minus the negatives

associated with each.

“I like that I can use it to screen and coat other

floors, which provides a more durable finish

than a customer is getting from some factory

finishes. Once it sets, the 3500 is like glass.

It’s a really great product.”

- Robert Pereira, principal of

Creative Floor Solutions

A few years ago, Mark Shrewsbury (pictured on the right),

owner of Mr. Sandman Hardwood Floors, made the

decision to use Vermont Natural Coatings line of

PolyWhey Professional Wood Floor Finishes as his go-to

finish to benefit both his customers and his company.

According to Shrewsbury, he made the switch because

“homeowners complain of the off-gassing and the VOC

issues with an oil finish and I also choose it for myself.

I got sick of breathing the fumes and I think it is a better

product in terms of hardness and durability”.

PolyWhey® started as collaboration among farmers, furniture makers and University of

Vermont scientists to expand the value of Vermont’s agriculture and forestry industries. It has

emerged as new coatings science, creating a category of wood finish with the durability of

oil-based finishes and the advantages of waterborne finishes with none of the disadvantages

of either. PolyWhey’s patented formula uses whey protein, a byproduct of cheese making, to

replace toxic ingredients traditionally found in wood finish. The result is a naturally durable,

safe and easy-to-use finish that has established the highest performance and environmental

standards. We started on the shelves of one retail store in Greensboro, Vermont (population

770) and now are available in stores throughout the United States and Canada.

“We’ve grown by building strong relationships with retailers, contractors, architects and

homeowners. Each connection is based on providing the best wood protection while making

application and living conditions dramatically better. We’re as concerned about indoor air

quality as we are outdoor air pollution. We’re proud of our lasting connections and

partnerships and remain committed to developing products that use sustainable ingredients

and are safe for people, pets and the environment.”

Andrew B. Meyer - President & Founder
