The Sansin Corporation Expands Its Environmentally Friendly Wood Protection Line With New Dealer Network in Alberta, Canada

STRATHROY, ON--(Marketwire - February 15, 2010) - The Sansin Corporation today announced that its Enviro Stain products will now be available throughout Southern Alberta through a new partnership with Overwalls Paint and Decor in Calgary, Alberta. Overwalls will be providing its customers with Sansin's complete range of interior and exterior environmentally friendly wood coatings and sealants that deliver outstanding performance and beauty without the toxicity found in conventional products.

"We are delighted to be able to offer the Sansin product line to our customers," said Rob Mueller, owner of Overwalls and president of the Paint & Decorating Retailers Association (PDRA). "Sansin specializes in long-lasting, high-quality environmentally friendly wood protection, and this partnership matches well with the uptick in demand we see for greener, wood protection choices. We look forward to a long and successful partnership with them."

With environmental awareness growing and emissions regulation on the horizon, Sansin is well positioned to provide stains to customers that demand high-quality products with low toxicity and low to zero VOCs. "We have spent the last 25 years developing high-performing products that are safe for the environment," said Sjoerd Bos, vice president of the Sansin Corporation. "Sansin looks for dealers that share a similar passion for the beautification of wood through environmentally friendly applications. Overwalls is a natural fit; they are dedicated to offering only the finest products."

Sansin's unique, non-filming, 'water-borne' alkyd formulas combine the benefits of both oil and water-based coatings, using water as the vehicle to allow oil to penetrate deep into the wood, leading to long-lasting durability and easier maintenance, unlike film-build coatings that can crack or peel. With a range of more than 80 colors with rich, deep hues, Sansin offers stains that naturally protect our greatest renewable resource, wood.

Sansin wood protection stains can now be found at five locations across Calgary. The newest Overwalls locations are located at Overwalls-Midnapore, 15130 Bannister Rd SE, Calgary, AB and Overwalls-Crowfoot, 141 Crowfoot Way NW, Calgary, AB. Or, to find a Sansin dealer location nearest you, visit
