Find it now at Sherwin-Williams — this bucket is a cut above.

CLEVELAND – April 21, 2020 – Professional painters need smart solutions that speed up the job, avoid messes and make it easier to achieve the best results. That’s why the new Purdy Pail is designed to enhance the painting experience with a full bucket of features that do more to provide the perfect finish.

A Cut Above

Purdy is the professional painting tool brand of choice, recognized for innovative products, exceptional quality and knowing exactly what painters need, according to inPAINT® magazine’s Annual Brand Preference Survey; 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016. After listening to customers, Purdy designed its new one quart- plus capacity pail to include everything pros want from their cut bucket.

When comfort is considered, convenience is built in and cleanup is a cinch, painters can focus on the task at hand, rather than fumbling with ordinary pails. When spills aren’t a worry and there’s less workaround to avoid dripping paint, pros can do more. The Purdy Pail is the latest addition to the full line of Purdy trays, frames and pails that make it easy for painters to find the right tool for any task.

The Purdy Pail, with a suggested starting retail price of $13.49 and is available at Sherwin-Williams, is packed with practical features owners are sure to appreciate, including:

Multiple grip options. Holding a bucket for hours can be a pain. The Purdy Pail helps solve the problem with a coffee-cup-style adjustable side grip for comfort. Users can also take advantage of a flexible bail handle like those found on standard paint cans.

Hands-free hanging. Add a pail hook to the bail to allow the Purdy Pail to hang on ladders within easy reach, keeping both hands free to work or climb without the risk that can come with other buckets.

Roller rest and ramp. The Purdy Pail is the perfect companion for mini rollers up to 41⁄2 inches with a roller ramp, a helpful side rest and an interior molding that holds rollers out of the paint.

A brush magnet. Switching from brushes to rollers and back means extra trips up and down the ladder — the Purdy Pail saves time and steps with an integrated brush magnet, offering powerful holding force. Both a brush and a mini roller can be held outside of the paint simultaneously.

Matching liners. Cleanup is fast and easy using Purdy Pail Liners with molded roller ramps. These formfitting liners come in packs of three and are available to purchase separately (suggested MSRP $6.99).

“As pros know, it’s the preparation and small details that add up to a job well done,” said Connie McKinney, senior product manager, Purdy. “With the Purdy Pail, we aimed to give painters yet another way to stay organized and efficient. Based on enthusiastic feedback from customers, we feel confident we hit the mark.”
