PolyWhey® has emerged as new wood finish technology; harnessing the power of whey protein, a byproduct of cheese making, to deliver a durable, beautiful finish that has established the industry’s highest performance and environmental standards.

Vermont Natural Coatings collaborated with woodworkers, farmers and scientists at the University of Vermont to develop this innovative technology. The durability of a wood finish is determined by the strength of its cross linkers. Polymerized whey proteins provide much stronger cross linking than other wood finishes.

PolyWhey® uses whey proteins instead of toxic ingredients found in traditional wood finish. The result is a lasting, beautiful finish that is safe for people, pets and the environment.
