Architects specified Sherwin- Williams ProMar 200 Zero VOC* to help meet the project's stringent indoor air quality standards. More than 500 gallons were applied. "ProMar 200 Zero VOC* is amazing," says Luke Lunt, presi- dent of Painting Plus LLC, the Kansas City firm that won the coatings contract. "We used this product in flat, eg-shel and semi gloss in a variety of colors on this project. The paint goes on smooth, has little to no smell, has good hide, and touches up great. I would recommend this product for healthcare facilities, educa- tional facilities, or any residential or commercial project." Painting Plus also used the low VOC version of Sherwin-Williams Dry- fall Black on ceilings on all three floors, includ- ing stairwells and a lobby area where there were ex- posed ceilings with drywall framed tile 'clouds' below, Lunt says. The faux clouds – both drywall and tile – were painted with white Pro Mar 200 Zero VOC*. Exterior steel canopies were coated with a VOC compliant, high performance coatings system of Macropoxy 646 and Hi-Solids Polyurethane.
