Canadian Finishing and Coatings Manufacturing

Sherwin Wood rszOctober 20, 2021

The Industrial Wood Coatings division of Sherwin-Williams has released its annual Colormix trend forecast for 2022 entitled MODE. Highlighting 24 trending wood finishes, MODE is an acronym for the four collections within the forecast – Method, Opus, Dreamland and Ephemera.

The forecast presents wood finishes that promote growth and adaptability, guiding industry trends throughout the next three to seven years, the company says.

“More and more, we’re seeing consumers embrace individuality when it comes to the products they choose and the way they design their spaces,” says Lauren West, Global Color and Design Director, Sherwin-Williams Industrial Wood Coatings. “With a wide range of trending finishes in MODE, we aim to inspire manufacturers to develop wood products that align with these consumer preferences.”

The finishes in MODE are derived from the Sherwin-Williams architectural paint Colormix Forecast but are translated into wood finishes for use by wood product developers and manufacturers. Both forecasts are heavily influenced by nature, noting the ways organic elements can provide balance in interior and exterior design.

“The natural finishes in this forecast are a breath of fresh air,” says West. “The elegantly refined accents and soft, grounding bases found in MODE lend a combination of nature and nurture to wood product design that is extremely refreshing. As home and business owners refine their spaces, our team is excited to assist manufacturers of furniture, kitchen cabinets, flooring and building products in bringing these restorative palettes to life through beautiful wood stains.”

New Bacharach Sling Psychrometer


CFCM slingpsychrometer 400Paul N. Gardner USA, global distributors, producers, and designers of quality physical and inspection instruments for the paint, coatings, and related industries, has introduced a new offering: The compact, portable Sling Psychrometer.

As an easy way to measure relative humidity levels quickly, this uniquely compact Bacharach Sling Psychrometer accurately determines per cent relative humidity without the necessity of consulting complex tables. There is no need to wet the wick each time a reading is taken, and it contains a slide rule calculator which correlates wet and dry bulb thermometer indications for direct reading of relative humidity. When not in use, the thermometer case telescopes into the handle for protection.

The Sling Psychrometer consists of two thermometers that are turned by vigorously swinging the handle and exposing the thermometers to rapid air movement. These two thermometers are called dry bulb and wet bulb. The bulb of one thermometer is placed in direct contact with the room air to measure dry-bulb air temperature. The bulb of the other thermometer is covered with a silk or muslin sleeve that is kept moist to record the wet bulb temperature. Evaporation cools the wet bulb more than the dry bulb, and the humidity is obtained as a function of change in temperature. The atmospheric humidity is determined by calculations, steam tables, or using a psychrometric chart. Gardco.com
