F3 products are traditional, catalyzed products with none of the formaldehyde typically emitted during application and curing and offer the same performance and aesthetics without concern of formaldehyde. Finishers benefit by eliminating both the strong odor of formaldehyde from their finishing process, as well as the residual formaldehyde odor that often causes complaints during installation and unpacking of wood products, according to the company. The four new products join the line that already includes Hi-Bild PreCat Lacquer, Kemvar Varnish and Kemvar Sealer. For information, visit
