Demand everything, compromise nothing with new OLYMPIC ONE interior paint

Paint-and-primer product offers high quality, performance and durability, not high price

PITTSBURGH, July 12, 2011 – Have you ever been reluctant to start a painting project because of the time commitment to complete all the steps in the process? Now, OLYMPIC(R) Paints is making it easy for consumers to tackle painting projects with Olympic ONE Interior Paint, a super premium paint and primer engineered for exceptional quality and durability – critical factors when it comes to tackling home improvement projects. Olympic ONE Interior Paint is backed by a lifetime warranty, and it is available at a retail price of approximately $24 per gallon.

“What differentiates Olympic ONE Interior Paint from the leading competitors on the market is that it’s engineered to offer the same benefits you would expect from a premium brand but costs significantly less,” said Jennifer Dodson, senior marketing manager, Olympic Paint and Stain. “We’re excited about this new product because it’s truly a complete DIY solution.”

Olympic ONE Interior Paint is formulated with the most advanced technology to provide optimal performance. The paint-and-prime formula provides extreme hiding power, creating a tough yet flexible coating that can adhere to a variety of surfaces and covers dark colors with ease and in fewer coats.

Consumers can now spend less time painting and more time enjoying their finished project.

Olympic ONE Interior Paint is also the perfect choice for those who entertain or have children, because it offers superior stain resistance. The formula repels common household stains, including dirt, grease, ink and crayon, to keep walls looking cleaner and newer longer. It also can endure 50 percent more scrubs than the leading competitors, while also maintaining the appearance of the finish. The advanced formula won’t wear off, even after harsh scrubbing, enabling consumers to keep the color of their walls while keeping them fresh and clean.

The formula also provides a mildew-resistant coating, which is critical for keeping rooms prone to humidity – such as the bathroom and kitchen – beautiful in appearance over time. Olympic ONE Interior Paint has earned the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval and is backed by a lifetime warranty.
