Jan 27, 2016, 12:11 ET from Valspar

MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Valspar Corporation has announced that it is introducing its Cabot® Woodcare line of top-quality stains and woodcare products to more than 1,400 Lowe's stores across the U.S. in March for the 2016 stain season.

Cabot's exterior woodcare line at Lowe's will include four Cabot product lines, including Cabot's Australian Timber Oil, Cabot Semi-Solid, Cabot Solid Acrylic and new Cabot Gold — in a variety of colors and finishes. Cabot's history of innovation and performance ensures that each of these products delivers rich color, protection and durability.

"Expanding distribution of our Cabot premium brand of stain to Lowe's stores is a win for do-it-yourselfers, pro painters, and our retail partner," said Les Ireland, Executive Vice President and President, Global Consumer. "For 138 years, people have chosen Cabot because of its excellent performance, and we're happy to offer it to Lowe's customers just in time for their spring and summer home improvement projects."

Cabot's exterior woodcare lineup offers an unparalleled formula that combines top chemistry and rigorous harsh-weather testing to produce beautiful hardwood stains. Its products have a reputation for being easy to use and maintain, and produce high-quality, long-lasting results.

Introducing Cabot Gold
Among the Cabot products at Lowe's is Cabot Gold, a new finish for exterior wood that provides serious weather protection and a luxurious satin finish for only $45.98 per gallon. Its unique two-step application offers the penetrating protection of stain with a finish that seals in the color and durability. It resists cracking, peeling, scuffing and scratching, wearing gracefully over time. When the satin sheen begins to dull, a single coat will refresh and restore it.

Cabot Gold is equally at home on decks, siding and outdoor furniture made of both cedar and pine. The product helps extend the look of beautiful hardwoods inside your home to your outdoor rooms and decks. It's available in four rich colors — Sun-drenched Oak, Sunlit Walnut, Fireside Cherry and Moonlit Mahogany.

In addition to Cabot stains, Lowe's also carries a full line of Valspar painting products and supplies for consumers and professionals.
