This January 2015, PPG Pittsburgh Paints will launch their new lines of paint. This, of course, is a result of the buy that occurred this past year when PPG Pittsburgh Paint bought out Devoe Paint.
It is sad to see the old reliable paint brand get bought up; Devoe paint was the best paint ever made. It covered better, filled better, held up better, and went on easier than any other paint on the market. However, Devoe Paint isn't quite dead yet.
PPG will keep Devoe products, while rebranding them. Some products will keep the same paint formula while representing a new PPG label; others will have new formulas and new PPG labels. Here is a breakdown...
New "enhanced" paint formula products:
- Regency Paint + Primer In One Interior and Exterior
- WONDER-PURE and WONDER-PURE PRIMER
- KILSTAIN WB Primer (Noooooo!)
"Same Great" Formula Products:
- Ceiling Paint
- WEATHER KING
- BAR OX
- High Hiding Primer
- PVA Primer
It's a shame PPG is changing the KILSTAIN WB Primer. That stuff is the greatest, being as thick as pancake batter. Hopefully, the "enhanced" products are as good or better than the old Devoe formulas.
