Every year, the editors of Popular Science review thousands of new products and innovations spanning 10 categories including personal care, medicine, sports, automotive, home, and many more. The final result is a list of 100 award winners, each of which represents a significant step forward in their specific category.

"The Best of What's New Awards are our way of celebrating the most exciting and groundbreaking innovations of the year. These awards highlight the revolutionary inventions that are helping to improve our daily lives, our society, and our planet," said Rob Verger, Popular Science Technology Editor. "From the future of air travel to revolutionary skin care products, and from sustainable outdoors equipment to game-changing gadgets, this year's list is a thrilling mix that we're proud to call the Best of What's New."

Glidden Max Flex spray paint earned its spot on the list thanks to its revolutionary lacquer-based formula, which eliminates common consumer pain points such as dripping, streaking and long dry times, without cracking or peeling. This formula, coupled with a fan-shaped spray, requires fewer passes than a traditional conical-shaped spray and dries within five minutes. With an ultra-durable finish, it can be used on a wide range of surfaces, including fabric, wood, metal, plastic and glass.

"We are very proud of the recognition that Glidden Max Flex spray paint has received from such a renowned publication as Popular Science," said Jaime Irick, PPG vice president, Architectural Coatings, U.S. and Canada. "This innovative product is exactly what consumers have been looking for in a spray paint, and we are honored that all the hard work our team has put into this product is being acknowledged."

Glidden Max Flex spray paint, launched earlier this year, is a true innovation story as the end product of collaboration between two PPG business units. By reimagining an existing technology for the DIY consumer, the result was a best-in-class spray paint that features a high-performance formula and unique dispersion design.

Available in 18 all-surface, two clear and six exterior fabric colors, the full lineup of Glidden Max Flex spray paint is available exclusively at select HOME DEPOT® locations in the United States and nationwide at HomeDepot.com.
