Dunn-Edwards Introduces Spartawall® and Spartashield®
LOS ANGELES – (August 9, 2011) Dunn-Edwards has introduced two new lines of paint products, Spartawall® Interior Acrylic Paints and Spartashield® Exterior 100% Acrylic Paints. Both product lines are available in a full range of gloss levels and colors. Spartawall and Spartashield are ideally suited for use on commercial and residential projects, such as schools, hotels, hospitals, and single family or multi-tenant housing. They are formulated with the highest quality ingredients that provide for a more durable, better hiding, and longer lasting paint. “Not only are these two new lines of paint easy to use, but testing has shown that they are equal or better in performance to competitive premium brands,” said Dave Heiligenthal, product manager.

Spartawall Interior Paints are formulated with high quality resin and pigments to provide a smooth, uniform finish that can withstand repeated washing. “Spartawall is proven to have the best scrub resistance versus competitive products in its class, and that means that the painted surface is going to look newer longer,” he added.

Spartashield Exterior 100% Acrylic Paints not only provide superior efflorescence resistance on masonry surfaces, but have exceptional grain crack resistance when applied to rough-sawn or properly prepared smooth wood. By using the highest quality pigments and resins, balanced with unique and special thickeners, Dunn-Edwards has developed a more durable, better hiding paint. Spartashield has exceptional sag resistance combined with superior flow and leveling. “Paints have to be more than just durable, they have to apply easily and look great when the project is done. Spartashield is hands down the smoothest looking, best hiding paint in its class,” he said.

Like all other Dunn-Edwards’ paint, Spartawall and Spartashield are eco-friendly and ethylene glycol (EG)-free. Both products are ultra-low VOC (less than 50 g/L), and have very low odor both during and after application.
