Improved Performance Evershield is formulated with 100% acrylic technology, which provides maximum protection against UV color fade, mildew, efflorescence, water intrusion and film failure (grain cracking, peeling and blistering).

The product has excellent application properties and is available in tint bases that allow the product to be mixed into light, medium and dark colors. “Improved Performance Evershield is our best exterior paint line,” says John Kim, product manager. “Our customers expect outstanding application properties, and excellent durability and finish for their most high-profile projects. Improved Performance Evershield delivers on each one.”

Improved Performance Evershield is available in six gloss levels: Flat and Velvet, which offer improved chalk resistance, alkali resistance, efflorescence resistance, surfactant leaching and improved durability; Eggshell, Low-Sheen, Semi-Gloss and Gloss, all provide improved block resistance, surfactant leaching, gloss retention, dry film hardness and early water resistance.

Like all Dunn-Edwards paints, Improved Performance Evershield does not contain ethylene glycol (EG). Dunn-Edwards removed EG from its paint formulas in 1984 and remains the only major manufacturer to have done so. EG, which is listed as a hazardous air pollutant and toxic air contaminant, can be harmful to humans.
