Pratt & Lambert Accolade, The Crown Jewel of Paints

Accolade, The Crown Jewel of Paints, is a line of 100 percent acrylic paints from Pratt & Lambert that provides exquisite beauty with the deepest, richest colors and sheens. The newly reformulated line of interior and exterior paints contains the highest grade of titanium dioxide, a primary pigment for bright, clear color. The reformulation also provides more mildew-resistance and longer open time.

Accolade contains very smooth, finely ground pigments, and is designed to duplicate the look and feel of oil-based enamel. Its unique stain-resistant formula provides continued washability and resistance to daily wear-and-tear, allowing Pratt & Lambert to offer a lifetime warranty.

“The lifetime warranty is a nice calling card for a contractor to leave,” says Bruce Ziegler, senior product manager for Pratt & Lambert, adding that color retention and fade-resistance are very good. Accolade paints also meet VOC laws in every state.

Accolade now comes in the Twist & Pour container, which features a twist-off resealable lid that is easy to open, carry and close. The lightweight plastic container and integrated handle make it easy to hold and work from. And when the painting job is complete, the can seals tightly, protecting leftover paint.
