Sherwin Wood rszOctober 20, 2021

The Industrial Wood Coatings division of Sherwin-Williams has released its annual Colormix trend forecast for 2022 entitled MODE. Highlighting 24 trending wood finishes, MODE is an acronym for the four collections within the forecast – Method, Opus, Dreamland and Ephemera.

The forecast presents wood finishes that promote growth and adaptability, guiding industry trends throughout the next three to seven years, the company says.

“More and more, we’re seeing consumers embrace individuality when it comes to the products they choose and the way they design their spaces,” says Lauren West, Global Color and Design Director, Sherwin-Williams Industrial Wood Coatings. “With a wide range of trending finishes in MODE, we aim to inspire manufacturers to develop wood products that align with these consumer preferences.”

The finishes in MODE are derived from the Sherwin-Williams architectural paint Colormix Forecast but are translated into wood finishes for use by wood product developers and manufacturers. Both forecasts are heavily influenced by nature, noting the ways organic elements can provide balance in interior and exterior design.

“The natural finishes in this forecast are a breath of fresh air,” says West. “The elegantly refined accents and soft, grounding bases found in MODE lend a combination of nature and nurture to wood product design that is extremely refreshing. As home and business owners refine their spaces, our team is excited to assist manufacturers of furniture, kitchen cabinets, flooring and building products in bringing these restorative palettes to life through beautiful wood stains.”

PPG Receives EPA Registration for COPPER ARMOR Paint Powered by Corning Guardiant Technology

PPG Copper Armour Paint

PPG announced that the company has received U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) registration for its PPG COPPER ARMOR antimicrobial paint containing Corning Guardiant technology, proven to kill 99.9% of bacteria and viruses on the painted surface, including SARS-CoV-2, in two hours.

The Copper Armor product’s efficacy was measured using tests that simulate real-world contamination that are mandated by the EPA for products making claims against harmful pathogens. Following this registration, PPG will begin selling the product in late 2021 through U.S. PPG PAINTS stores, independent retailers and select home improvement stores.
