CHICAGO, Feb. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Cabot Woodcare, a leading supplier of top-quality stains and woodcare products, is launching a new luxurious finish, Cabot Gold, that blurs the lines between indoor and outdoor living with features that give homeowner's what they really want – beauty. The new product will be available at home improvement retailers beginning this spring.
Perfect for decks and outdoor furniture, Cabot Gold mimics the appearance of interior hardwood floors outdoors for a luxurious look through two coats. The first coat penetrates, while the second coat adds dimension as it seals, to protect against UV sun damage, extreme temperatures and rain and moisture.
"We're excited to launch Cabot Gold, a product that can stand up to weather's extremes and makes your deck or patio just as comfortable and welcoming as the indoor rooms of your house," said Russ Neale, Director of Product Marketing for Cabot. "Cabot Gold provides a unique, polished look and allows you to use one single product for penetrating and sealing."
Designed to withstand time, Cabot Gold is applied in three steps.
- Bring to Bare: Remove all existing stain, paint or sealer. Then clean and sand the bare wood so Cabot Gold can penetrate properly and seal beautifully.
- Apply Two Coats: Let the first coat dry at least 24 hours before applying the second coat. Let dry for three days before returning furniture to a deck.
- Celebrate the Beauty: Applied properly, Cabot Gold will wear gracefully without peeling.
Cabot Gold is available in four different stain colors and can be used on both cedar and pine. Stain colors include Sun-Drenched Oak, Sunlit Walnut, Fireside Cherry and Moonlight Mahogany. The product is available at Home Centers and Independent Paint and Hardware Stores in spring 2016. Cabot Gold has a suggested retail price of $19.98 for a quart and $45.98 for a gallon.
