Introducing Vermont Natural Coatings’ PolyWhey non-toxic, zero VOC floor finish!

Just in time for the closed-window, floor-coating season, allow us to introduce Vermont Natural Coatings’ PolyWhey – a non-toxic, low VOC polyurethane finish.

This American-owned and manufactured waterborne polyurethane uses whey from dairy industry byproducts to make an iron-wearing floor finish that is still easy to apply.

We’re already used it on the floor of our store in St. Paul because it’s winter in Minnesota and we need something that looks good while it resists all the gravel and salt we bring in on our boots.

If it works for our constantly abused floors, imagine what it will do at your house!
