One of the nominees is Sashco Sealants, a Colorado based manufacturer of coatings and sealant. Transformation Stain, Sashcos newest addition to their stain line is formulated with resins based on renewable resources, such as safflower, linseed, and Tung oil, rather than petroleum-based chemicals. The Transformation Stain VOC compliant formula utilizes a solvent that is non-photochemically reactive, so it does not generate ground level smog.
Sashco took special care when formulating Transformation Stain for long-term durability and performance to decrease the frequency and need to re-apply, or re-stain so as often as other stains on the market. Longer durability results in reduced product consumption and the resulting waste. To further reduce waste, Transformation Stain is packaged in fully recyclable metal pails.
Many of Sashcos products are all totally water based products that offer Earth, animal and human friendly water-clean up without the use of mineral spirits or other harsh chemicals that pollute the air, ground, and water and are toxic to both humans and animals.
