LAS VEGAS – January 22, 2013 – With the launch of Sherwin-Williams Dry Erase Coating, painting professionals can create versatile, economical dry erase boards for a wide variety of applications in schools, businesses and homes.

Formulated exclusively for application by professional paint contractors, Dry Erase Coating is ideal for use in a wide array of settings, from classrooms, conference rooms and offices, to the home with kitchen message boards and kids’ bedrooms. It is easily applied to virtually any interior substrate and over any paint color, producing a durable, clear gloss finish that wipes clean for years of use and no “ghosting”.
