Wolverine Paint Offers Sansin’s High-Performance, Low-VOC Wood Finishes to DIYers & Contractors in Southern Michigan

The Sansin Corporation, a global leader in environmentally friendly, high-performance wood protection, is pleased to announce that Wolverine Paint, located at 4860 E Michigan 36 in Pinckney, Mich., will offer the company’s exterior line of wood protection products. To showcase the products, Sansin is hosting a demonstration at Wolverine Paint on Tuesday, June 4, from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. At the event, a wood finish advisor will offer tips on how to successfully prepare a wood surface and apply Sansin water-borne, penetrating products on decks, siding, and other surfaces. There will also be an opportunity for contractors and homeowners to ask questions about specific project needs. Refreshments will be served.

Wolverine Paint, a division of Norkan, Inc., offers one-stop shopping for paint supplies, wood protection products, and more. The company prides itself on providing quality customer service and being able to service the everyday needs of homeowners and contractors. Beyond wood protection and paint, Wolverine sells remediation equipment for asbestos, black mold, and more.

Scott Acree, Wolverine Paint Store Manager, says Sansin is a welcome addition to the store shelves. “There are about three dozen lakes near us, which means our customers have a lot of wooden docks and decks that need protection,” Acree explained. “I’ve been working in the business for 30 years and haven’t found a good water-borne wood protection system until I was introduced to Sansin.” Acree added that because Sansin is manufactured in Canada, he knows the products are made to last. “If it works up there, it should definitely work down here,” he said.

Sansin’s Director of Sales & Marketing Caroline March-Long said Wolverine’s customers will appreciate the beauty and performance that Sansin’s unique water-borne technology offers. “With our products, modified natural oils and resins are carried deep into the wood’s cell structure with water. As the water evaporates, Sansin bonds directly with the wood substrate, forming a tough, durable barrier that won’t crack, peel, or blister,” said March-Long. “In short, Sansin products offer exceptional beauty and lasting performance.”

Sansin’s exterior finishes come in a range of colors from naturals, translucents, and saturated to solid hide. Since Wolverine custom tints Sansin products on-site, customers are able to get the exact color they want for their project.

  • DEC: Dec is a rugged two-coat formula that penetrates deeply, protecting the wood from within. While many deck coatings easily peel and scratch, Dec penetrates deep into the wood tissue for lasting protection from rain and UV exposure.
  • ENS: This durable two-coat finish can be applied to virtually any surface – from millwork and siding to decks and outdoor furniture. ENS is self-priming and offers exceptional adhesion to almost any surface, resulting in a satin or gloss finish of exceptional beauty.
  • Classic 1·2·3: Classic was developed to protect and beautify logs and big timbers, which can often have a high moisture content. The low-lustre, three-coat penetrating formula enhances the natural beauty of wood, allowing the wood to breathe and preventing moisture from getting trapped and rotting the wood from inside.
  • SDF: SDF provides tough, effective protection for wood siding. SDF’s specially formulated oils and resins penetrate into the wood, providing outstanding weather and UV protection in a wide range of colors. SDF also comes in a durable topcoat finish that is highly resistant to wear, doesn’t discolor over time, and enhances the natural UV protection – and beauty – of the existing Sansin SDF finish.
