Kemiko. Give concrete a pick-me-up with Rembrandt polymer stains , a vibrant line of colors that differ from the maker's Acid Stains. Ranging from cobalt blue to yellow oxide, the polymers can be blended or applied with sponge, marbleizing, or ragging techniques for custom colors and textures. The low-VOC material is suitable for interior or exterior use on concrete floors, walls, countertops (topcoat necessary), and more. 903.587.3708. www.kemiko.com.
Waterlox. Unlike urethane finishes that coat wood with a layer of plastic, Waterlox Tung Oil finishes offer a handmade blend of tung tree nut oil and resin that penetrates even the densest of woods and remains elastic with the change of seasons. Now VOC-compliant in all 50 states, the maker says the finish will provide the look and feel of naturally oiled wood, as well as a waterproof surface that won't chip, peel, crack, or wrinkle. 800.321.0377. www.waterlox.com.
Duron. Signature Select interior acrylic gloss enamel has the characteristics of oil-based paint in a durable water-based acrylic formula. The enamel adheres to glossy surfaces with minimal surface prep and offers excellent flow, leveling, and hide, the maker says. Low odor, fast dry time, and soap-and-water clean-up are additional benefits. The Signature Select line is formulated to offer added mildew-resistance, making it effective in high-moisture areas. 800.723.8766. www.duron.com.
Minwax. Find rich red undertones in two new colors, chestnut and gunstock, added to the Wood Finish palette. Available in gallon, quart, or half-pint sizes, the new finishes are made for interior wood surfaces, including furniture, doors, floors, cabinets, and more. The Wood Finish oil-based stains normally require two coats with a brush, cloth, or foam applicator, and will penetrate into wood pores for a long-lasting color, the maker says. Additional coats may be applied for richer color. 201.818.7500. www.minwax.com.
