PPG and The Home Depot expand partnership with launch of Olympic stain products

PPG and The Home Depot have expanded their partnership to offer PPG’s Olympic brand stains in its nearly 2000 locations across the USA.

This partnership combines the innovative woodcare performance of Olympic stains with the largest retailer of exterior stains, providing great selection and value to The Home Depot customers.

Consumer-trusted stain products, including Olympic Maximum, Olympic Elite and Olympic Waterguard, will become available at most of these Home Depot locations by the end of the second quarter 2018.

In addition, PPG’s latest innovation, Olympic SmartGuard, will soon be available at select U.S. Home Depot stores in time for the spring season.

A first-of-its-kind product in North America, Olympic SmartGuard aims to take the hassle out of weekend projects with a super- concentrated formula in a lightweight, easy-to-handle pouch package.

Drying in as little as one hour after application, as compared to 24-48 hours for traditional products, it provides a durable, super water-resistant seal.

Unlike traditional stain products, there is no brushing required – easy spray-on application allows homeowners to spend less time applying and more time enjoying their outdoor living space.

“Olympic has been America’s most trusted stain brand since 1938 and is rated among the top stains by a leading independent consumer rankings magazine,” said Dave Cole, PPG Vice President, Architectural Coatings, U.S. and Canada.

“We are pleased to grow our partnership with The Home Depot and offer their customers an array of high-quality, well-respected products.”
