Hi-quality dry erase paint keeps walls looking fresh for ten or more years. Compared to standard flat or semi-gloss indoor wall paint, our premium dry-erase paints are formulated to create a superior satin to semi-gloss finish with minimal glare, allowing users to write or draw as long as they like without experiencing eye strain. Our durable coatings come in two colors, white and clear. They’re designed to create the time-honored whiteboard effect on the coated surface while also maintaining the quality of high erasability, which allows markings made by low-odor dry erase markers to be effortlessly wiped off without smudging or streaking.
It’s important, however, to follow the cleaning and care instructions provided with the product to guarantee that your dry-erase coated surface remains fresh and new-looking for many years to come.
Dry Erase walls = Performance
Premium dry-erase paint can be applied to almost any surface in either the white or clear version. This great flexibility of application allows for the transformation of walls, doors, desktops, room dividers, tabletops, and even ceilings into long-lasting and highly functional dry-erase surfaces. When the application instructions are followed carefully, our top-quality dry-erase surfaces erase exceptionally well and can be further cleaned by light buffing with a microfiber cloth. In fact, with their low-odor, eco-friendly dry erase formula and commercial-grade performance capacity, both our white and clear coatings have been given the highest ratings for erasability and durability of all dry-erase paints on the market today. Quality dry-erase coatings are designed and formulated to last and come with a full ten-year warranty ensuring trouble-free application and use.
Over the last decade, the production of environmentally friendly paints and coatings like ours has made great strides, and this growth has been hastened by advances in performance capabilities and reductions in ingredients that emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which are highly hazardous chemicals that cause eye, nose and throat irritation, headaches, nausea, and potential damage to the liver, kidneys, and brain. The main focus in creating new paints and coatings for architectural and industrial use has been on ways to achieve maximum performance levels while still meeting strict VOC and emissions requirements. And environmentally conscious paint companies such as ours are encouraging suppliers to use even more ecologically sound production methods to help reduce damage to the planet.
Ideal for schools, offices, cafeterias, clinics, homes, and other venues, our coatings are exceptionally easy to clean, resist stains, chemicals, and abrasions, feature high-performance capability, and are low in VOCs, which, as mentioned, are unsafe for human health and the environment.
Easy to Erase – Dry Erase
Top-quality dry-erase painted surfaces are large and effortless to erase, making it possible for fresh ideas to keep coming and being replaced by new ones until the ideal solution to a problem or strategy for project implementation is reached. The walls encourage continuous generation and evaluation of original ideas. And after a round of group-free association, the results of a team’s collaborative thinking can readily be narrowed down to the most relevant and operable ideas through the flexibility, size, and easy erasability of a dry-erase painted wall. A major factor in deciding on the quality of a dry-erase painted surface is how easily it can be erased. In the case of our premium dry-erase surfaces, you can be sure that they’ll always erase easily and wipe off without needing to use your valuable time and energy in scrubbing away streaks or smudge marks. After a perfect installation, you’ll have a smooth, durable surface where all traces of your writing or drawing can be wiped away fast so that you and your team can continue to express your ideas for as long as you like.
Besides being highly efficient, the quality of easy erasability also has other benefits. Physics teacher Dr. Colleen Megowan-Romanowicz has found that students using erasable whiteboards instead of non-erasable flip charts are better at collaborating and prompting others to work with them and share ideas. In her study, students who did problems on flip charts talked with one another mainly before any writing began, possibly because marker ink on flip chart paper is not erasable. Thus, most of the group’s thinking about what was to be presented on the charts stopped before much content was written. This was true despite the fact that the students had been told they could start over on a fresh sheet of paper whenever they liked. In addition, the student who ended up writing on the chart paper was almost always the one who drew the best, had the most legible handwriting, or was most assertive in grabbing the marker. This caused what appeared on the flip chart representations to be these writers’ personal versions of the group’s thinking.
However, a different scenario occurred with the students who used whiteboards. Instead of waiting to write before the group’s thinking was completed, students began writing immediately, starting, stopping, and erasing continuously, and the results that appeared on the board evolved as their discussion evolved. Although some group members didn’t write, many more cases of several students simultaneously writing/drawing on the whiteboard occurred. These results show that due to their erasability, whiteboards stimulate group collaboration in a more active and democratic way than writing on paper, as the students who used the whiteboard didn’t hesitate to think about what to write but jumped in and started writing and erasing right away. So, the work they did evolved dynamically, as they talked continuously during the problem-solving process. And, considering the large surfaces available on dry-erase painted walls, such collaboration would have been even more creative and free-flowing, with larger numbers of students being able to write simultaneously and interact cooperatively on a large wall to solve the problem assigned.
Thus, because of their great size and erasability, dry-erase walls are the perfect media for stimulating unlimited creative thinking and imagining, allowing students, office staff, or family members to express ideas through writing and drawing. On a dry-erase wall, a long series of thoughts and images can be displayed by using the same space over and over again to add and erase in real-time. In this way, participants’ ability to focus in brainstorming sessions, meetings, or conferences can be greatly enhanced. According to a study conducted at Indiana University, the mere act of writing by hand releases creative centers in the brain that are not easily accessed by other means. And the fact that dry-erase painted walls are so easily erased makes writing by hand even more productive since thoughts can keep being written and removed until the writer and team are fully satisfied with the result.
Long-Lasting Dry Erase Paint
With proper upkeep and normal types of wear, our long-lasting premium dry-erase painted surfaces resist yellowing, cracking, and peeling, even under continuous use for many years, and come with an industry-best ten-year warranty from the time of shipping. This ability to endure long uninterrupted use is highly beneficial to both your bottom line and the environment because, for many years, you’ll save money by not having to use alternate media such as flip charts, conventional whiteboards, chalkboards, or electronic devices, all of which are either difficult or impossible to recycle. Thus, installing our coatings in your workplace or home is a highly practical and eco-friendly option.
Vault50.com, an independent online review guide that deals with medical, business, and industrial products and software, supports the view that our coatings last long and work well. The site recently evaluated a number of different varieties, brands, and colors of dry erase coatings and then ranked them based on their formulation properties, warranty, dry-erase finish quality, usability on a surface over time, odor, cost-effectiveness, compatibility with different types of dry erase markers, and recommended drying time. At the conclusion of the study, the site ranked our dry-erase coating as its “Best Dry Erase/Whiteboard Paint for 2021.”
