PPG MACHINECOAT™ WB (waterborne) weathering stain for new commercial cedar shingles is a low-VOC stain that offers an alternative to traditional solvent-based PPG Machinecoat alkyd weathering stains.
Whitish-gray when machine-applied to new cedar shingles, PPG Machinecoat WB weathering stain lightens over a six-to-nine-month period, gradually assuming the appearance of aged cedar that blends naturally into its surroundings. The faux-weathered appearance lasts until the cedar begins to age and fade naturally.
PPG developed the weathering stain to satisfy demand from producers of commercial cedar shingles for an environmentally sustainable product that creates the finished look homeowners want.
PPG Machinecoat WB weathering stain provides a uniform, weathered appearance when applied to white cedar shingles and air dries in approximately 30 minutes in ambient conditions. It also can be force-dried under suitable conditions.
