To brighten up your old kitchen, insist on Olympic® ONE Paint. When sauce happens, our paint is proven to be mess-proof. In fact, Olympic ONE recently earned a Best Buy rating from a leading consumer magazine.
Many professional painters will tell you that primer is essential for paint projects. Primer helps paint to cover better, but it's another step you have to do. That's why we created Olympic® ONE Paint. It's specially formulated to cover in fewer coats. That's a whole can's worth of extra work you may not have to buy — not to mention separate brushes and rollers for primer. When you insist on Olympic ONE, you'll save time and money.
Walls & Paint Staying Together
When you insist on Olympic® ONE Paint, you can be assured that our paint will stay where you roll it. Often, when you see walls that are flaking or peeling, it's the result of poor paint adhesion. Incredible adhesion is part of our advanced formula. Olympic ONE sticks to a variety of surfaces without having to use a separate primer. It's really about chemistry: the kind where our paint loves your wall so much it never wants to leave.
We took our Olympic® ONE Paint and a leading competitor's paint and applied each in an even thickness to test panels. After drying, we etched each panel then applied tape over the etched area and removed it. As you can see, the tape pulled the competitor's paint right off the test panel. Our paint stayed with the wall. You should want a paint that's going to stick around. When you insist on Olympic ONE, it will.
Stop Mildew Before It Starts
Kitchens and bathrooms are battlegrounds between paint and mildew. When you insist on Olympic® ONE Paint, you'll have the winning advantage. Olympic ONE is specially formulated to keep mildew from gaining a foothold on your paint surface. That will help keep your kitchen and bathroom looking beautiful for a long time.
Over 2,500 Scrubs.* You'll Wear Out Before It Does.
Something is going to end up on your walls. It's a law of nature. It could be food. It could be mud. It could be the artwork of a five-year-old in marker. Don't even worry about it. Olympic® ONE Paint is made to be scrubbed. It's specially formulated to withstand repeated washing and proven to endure over 2,500 scrubs. And when your walls get dirty, you'll appreciate the easy cleanup when you insist on Olympic ONE.
*Based on testing of semi-gloss sheen. Results on other sheens may vary.
We applied an even amount of Olympic® ONE Paint and a leading competitor's paint to a black vinyl test panel. After letting each dry, we put both through an industry-standard scrub test. In this test, the competition's paint clearly failed after just 1,179 scrubbings. Our paint is still going strong after 2,577 scrubbings. For a truly durable paint, insist on Olympic ONE.
Stain Resistant—Even Against the Tomato Launcher
Our built-in stain resistance is a built-in value—it helps your paint finish look like new for longer. Compared to most other paints, there is no comparison. The secret is in how it's made. The technology in Olympic® ONE Paint helps keep stains from penetrating too deep. When you insist on Olympic ONE, you'll have paint that stands the test of time: splatters, messy eaters and kids.
Stain Resistance Test
We applied even coats of Olympic® ONE Paint and a leading competitor's paint to test panels, and marked both with #2 pencil, blue ballpoint pen, green crayon, Gravy Master and grape juice concentrate. Each of these stains soaked in for 30 minutes, then rinsed. Next, we put each through an industry-standard scrub test using a common household cleaner. We scrubbed each for 50 cycles and rinsed. As you can see, both paints appear to have the same great stain resistance. The difference this test doesn't show you is just as important: our paint costs less.
Use Color To Master Your Bedroom.
Olympic® ONE Paint can transform your bedroom into a work of art or a chamber of serenity. Find your perfect color by trying our amazing color tools, browsing designer color collections or virtually paint your own room.
Put the Old Color Where It Belongs: Underneath
It's probably happened to you before. You wanted to repaint that room a lighter color, but the new paint just wouldn't keep the old paint from showing through. That's why you should insist on Olympic® ONE Paint. It's specially formulated to have extreme hiding power. It will cover those old colors with ease—with just one coat in some cases—which can save you time and money.
Hiding Test Comparison
We took our Olympic® ONE Paint and a leading competitor's paint and applied an equal coat of each to a zebra pattern chart. We then rated each paint by its ability to cover the zebra pattern. As you can see in the picture, the competition was no match for our extreme hiding power. When you have to cover up old paint, insist on Olympic ONE.
Let Us Help You Start Your Next Project.
Olympic® has over 1,200 colors to choose from to brighten up your home. Plus we can custom match virtually any color you can throw at us using our ColorClix™ tool. We've also put together our exclusive Color Collections, rich palettes of color that work in concert to help you take the guesswork out of choosing a new color scheme for your next project.
Flow to a New Level of Smooth
Paint professionals call it "flow and leveling." What it means to you is the quality and smoothness of the finish after it dries. Paints with poor flow and leveling will leave behind the telltale marks of brushes and rollers. When you insist on Olympic® ONE Paint, all you'll notice is the beautiful color you've chosen. And that coveted, velvety finish that feels almost like glass.
Drawdown Bar Painting Test
We took our Olympic® ONE Paint and a leading competitor's paint and applied each in an even thickness to test panels using a grooved metal drawdown bar. The samples were allowed to dry overnight and then measured. For most paints, applying with the metal drawdown bar instead of a brush or roller would ensure an uneven finish. Which is very true for the competition. But as you can see, when you insist on Olympic ONE, you can get a pretty smooth finish even when using a metal drawdown bar to paint. For you, however, we suggest trying this at home with a brush or roller.
A Big Reason to Stick with Our 100% Acrylic Paint
Professional painters call it "blocking." You probably have a more colorful term or phrase for it when a freshly painted door or window sticks every time you try to open or close it. That's not going to be an issue when you insist on Olympic® ONE Paint. Unlike other paints, our 100% acrylic formula won't make your bedroom window require a gym membership to open it.
We applied Olympic® ONE Paint and a leading competitor's paint in even amounts on two test panels. Both were allowed to dry under the exact same conditions. Each panel was then folded together—paint-on-paint—and subjected to the exact same temperature and pressure for the same amount of time. Then we unfolded each panel to test for stickiness and to see if any paint came off either panel. Each was rated on an industry-standard scale of 0 to 10—with 10 being the best. The above data confirms you definitely want to insist on Olympic ONE when it comes to painting doors, door jambs, windows and trim.
Our Best Choice for Kids Rooms
When it comes to your children, you want a paint that's safe. That's why you should insist on Olympic® Premium Interior Paint. First, it contains zero VOCs and is low odor. That's good news for kids. Better news for parents is that our durable Premium Interior Paint is stain resistant and withstands repeated cleaning. It hides well too, so you can update their rooms easily as they get older.
We applied an even amount of our Premium Interior Paint and a leading competitor's paint to a black vinyl test panel. After letting each dry, we put both through an industry-standard scrub test. As you can see from the chart and the picture, the Olympic® Premium Paint lasted through more scrubbings than the competition. And it will last through your kids too.
Great for Kids and Noses
Stop waiting for that "new paint" smell to go away before you use a room. When you insist on low odor Olympic® Premium Interior Paint, you can paint and enjoy on the same day. It helps you improve the look of your home without pinching your nose.
Volatile Organic Compounds
Olympic® Premium Interior Paint contains zero VOCs – also known as volatile organic compounds. Other paints give off these VOCs as fumes. But not Olympic Premium Interior Paint. For those of you who are sensitive to paint smells, this may be the relief you've been looking for. It's good for your home and good for the planet.
The DuraLife™ Formula
The exclusive DuraLife™ formula is found only in Olympic® Premium Exterior Paint. The DuraLife formula helps our paint stand up to the elements — including the harmful effects of sun and rain. And longer lasting paint is always a better value.
Olympic Premium Exterior Paint's 100% acrylic formula has superior adhesion versus other paints, providing excellent durability and resistance to cracking, peeling and flaking. The DuraLife formula also resists color fading, to keep your home looking beautiful longer. And don't let unsightly mold or mildew spoil the appearance of your home either. When you insist on Olympic Premium Exterior Paint with the DuraLife™ formula, you'll get moisture resistance and extra protection against mold or mildew on the paint's surface.
Mildew Resistance Test
We painted test boards with Olympic® Premium Exterior Paint with our DuraLife™ formula and a competitor's paint. After the boards were allowed to dry, we placed each in a mildew-prone area and allowed nature to take its course. As you can see, the DuraLife formula helps resist the growth of mildew much better than the competition.
Surface Adhesion Test
We applied even coats of our Premium Exterior Paint with the DuraLife™ formula and a competitor's paint to wood panels. Each panel was allowed to dry equally under laboratory conditions. Then we exposed each panel to the blazing Florida sun for an equal amount of time. After drying, an "X" was inscribed in each test panel, and a piece of tape was applied to both panels. The tape was pulled off of each panel using a pull-adhesion test. As you can see, our paint adhered to the panel better than the competition's. That's the difference the DuraLife formula can make on your house.
Only Olympic® Premium Exterior Paint comes with DirtGuard™ technology. It's our exclusive formula: an advanced dirt-resistant technology that repels stains and requires less maintenance than most other paints on the market.
Clean Up Test
We took our paint and a competitor's paint and applied each in an even thickness to aluminum test panels. After drying, the panels were exposed to repeated and equal cycles of sun and rain exposure. Then we threw on the dirt — applying an even amount of southern clay dirt to each panel and allowing equal time to penetrate before we wiped each panel clean. As you can see in the demonstration, the Olympic® Premium Exterior Paint with our exclusive DirtGuard™ technology cleans up so well you can barely tell it was ever dirty. You really can't say the same thing about the competition.
Stain + Sealant in One: One Can. Double Duty.
Wind. Rain. Wild temperature swings. Snow and ice. This is what your stains have to endure every year. That's why we developed our exclusive core-shell technology featuring our unique acrylic/oil resin formula. As a stain + sealant in one it penetrates deep into the wood to unlock the natural beauty of wood and at the same time creates a protective barrier against the elements of every season. You love the natural beauty of wood and we love to keep it that way, so insist on Olympic® Maximum® Stain + Sealant in One.
Core-shell technology puts the "Maximum" in Olympic® Maximum® Stain + Sealant in One. The oil resin core is encapsulated in an acrylic shell. As the oil penetrates deeply, the water-based acrylic shell evaporates, leaving behind an ultra-fine film on the wood surface for additional water repellency and U.V. resistance. This combination provides the best of both worlds: optimum penetration with extra surface film protection to withstand all that Mother Nature has to throw at it.
Stain Without the Strain
Olympic® Maximum® Stain + Sealant in One brings out the natural beauty of your wood. It doesn't mask the rich grain. It enhances it — all while providing a protective barrier against the elements so the look lasts and lasts.
When you insist on Olympic® Stain, you can finish your projects in less time. While many stains need two or more coats, Olympic Maximum Stain brings out the beauty in just one.* It doubles the value, not the work, because it's a stain + sealant in one. Our unique acrylic/oil resin core-shell technology penetrates deep into the wood for a durable, long-lasting beauty that you'll enjoy for years.
*Excludes solid color stain.
Olympic® Maximum® Semi-Transparent Stain sets the benchmark with its richly pigmented, truly transparent, natural wood finish. It utilizes a three-component approach to stabilize, absorb and reflect damaging U.V. rays so you enjoy the longest-lasting, most vibrant color possible. You can see the difference when compared to the other leading brands above. Olympic Maximum Stain + Sealant in One gives wood an even, uniform appearance that highlights and beautifies with crisp, clear color. While the other brands are dull and lifeless, our semi-transparent stain unlocks the genuine, natural character of the wood.
The Scuff Guard® Formula
Another feature of Olympic® Maximum® Stain + Sealant in One is our exclusive Scuff Guard® formula. Every day your deck is subjected to boots, pet paws, lawn chairs and everything else that gets dragged across it. When you insist on Olympic® Stain, the Scuff Guard formula gives your wood a tough finish and an enhanced level of protection from everyday life. Because your grill should only leave marks on your burgers, not on your deck.
Over 160 Colors to Beautify Your Backyard
Your backyard is part of your living space. Chances are, you'll make as many memories on your deck as you will in any other room in your house. Make the same commitment to beauty outdoors that you would make indoors. We have everything you're looking for: clear sealants, toners, semi-transparent and solid color stains. We have over 160 different colors to choose from. You'll find just the right stain to complement your home's exterior — and get the value of our long-lasting protection - when you insist on Olympic® Maximum® Stain + Sealant in One.
Keep Wood Looking Great for Years
Olympic® Maximum® Stain + Sealant in One is deep-penetrating, allowing it to look great and last a long time. Our advanced resin technology strengthens wood fibers for enhanced peel resistance and color retention versus other stains. It stands up to the elements to resist fading and cracking and preserve your wood's natural beauty. When you insist on Olympic® Stain, you will keep your deck, fence or gazebo looking like new year after year.
Accelerated Two-Year Test Results
We stained three test boards with one coat of semi-transparent stain, one with our Olympic® Maximum® Stain + Sealant in One and two with stains from leading competitors. Then we put the boards through an accelerated two-year U.V./weather test. As you can clearly see, our semi-transparent stain resisted peeling and retained more color and luster than the competition. When it comes to keeping the beauty of your wood, insist on Olympic Maximum Stain + Sealant in One.
Maximum Water Repellency
Olympic® Maximum® Stain + Sealant in One provides enhanced waterproofing protection in just one coat. Our stain forms a protective barrier to repel rain, snow and ice. It seals the wood on decks, fences and other outdoor structures to protect against water damage, which can lead to cracking and splitting. It's just one more reason to insist on Olympic® Stain.
Treated Wood Versus Untreated Wood
An untreated deck won't last long when the rains come. When water seeps into bare wood, it swells. As it dries, it shrinks, causing your valuable investment to warp, bow, split, crack and gray. That's why you should insist on Olympic® Maximum® Stain. It's a stain and sealant in one, forming a protective barrier to help keep water out. And it doesn't take much water to do the damage. When your wood is properly sealed, water will bead up on the surface. Untreated wood absorbs water, leading to nasty discoloration and possible structural damage.
Premium Paints & Stains At A Non-Premium Price
Durability, ease-of-application and incredible color choices all meet in this affordable collection of premium paints and stains. No matter the room. No matter the project. No matter the season. When it comes to your home, always insist on Olympic® Paints and Stains.
