Earth Day and Sustainability!


On Monday, April 22 the world celebrated Earth Day. The first Earth Day, 43 years ago established the modern day environmental movement as a force to be reckoned with. It helped lead to the creation of the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts.

Preservation Products strives to be environmentally responsible with our products and our conduct. We are dedicated to sustainability on many levels:

  • Low VOC Waterborne Coatings 
  • Cool Roofing 
  • Durable Products
  • Product Development

All of the coatings that Preservation Products offers are waterborne coatings that are low VOC. Our coatings eliminate the need for solvent based coatings that pollute the air and are hazardous to handle and dispose of. Waterborne coating technology offers consumers a safer and more environmentally responsible alternative. 

Acrymax cool roof systems offer many environmental benefits. They provide high solar reflectance and high thermal emittance leading to reduced air conditioning costs and longer roof life. They also help mitigate urban heat island effects and help reduce greenhouse gases.

Acrymax coatings are highly durable. Durable products lead to longer life cycles for roofing and other systems. Longer lasting materials mean less demand for raw materials for replacement materials. Less material ends up in landfills.

Acrymax has a long-standing commitment to product development to improve the environmental aspects of our coatings. We continue to lower VOC content and recently we have been utilizing recycled content in some of our coatings to provide even more sustainable products. 

Preservation Products is committed to the concept of sustainability. We believe that it is the responsibility of all of us to do our part to help protect the environment for future generations. We can all make a difference!
