The Dow Chemical Co. has introduced RhoplexTMPR-295 with AvanseTMtechnology, a high-performance and environmentally friendly aqueous binder, to the North American coatings market. The PR-295 binder was developed for use with exterior and interior primers and stain-blocking sealers. The patented Avanse technology provides film formation that blocks stains from migrating through the dry paint film and yields stain-blocking performance without the use of zinc oxide.

Primers and sealers based on the PR-295 binder offer stain blocking and “bleed through” resistance over cedar and redwood. They also block stains over common interior household stains, such as those left by water damage.
