Formula Adjustments Improve Your Favorite Paints

Relying on the same paint every time you have a project can feel stifling, especially if you assume the paint formula has remained the same over time and will always lend you the same result. However, Sherwin Williams frequently makes updates to improve their paint and give a better end result with the adjustments. Here are a few notable changes made recently.

ProMar 200 Zero VOC Flat

ProMar?s 200 Zero VOC Interior Latex Paint has a flat sheen which now hides better and has a clearer uniformity. It also meets MPI certification, which drives commercial specifications, so definitely consider this option if you are painting a building.

Gene Merrill, Director of Product Development at Sherwin-Williams, says ?The flatter finish helps mask minor drywall imperfections and leads to an improved overall appearance.? It?s also important to note that the entire paint job will finish much quicker due to the increased hiding and improved final appearance. Who doesn?t want that?

Emerald Matte and Satin

With Emerald Interior Acrylic Latex Paint, Merrill explains how both the matte and satin finishes ?provide a smoother final appearance, touch-up, and even better cleanability and stain removal.? He believes these paints will provide customers with the best durability, since they have updated washability, stain resistance, and final appearance. It?s nice to know that the formula makers would give us room for error by creating a paint which will easily allow for clean up. We are definitely a fan of that.

SuperPaint Flat

SuperPaint Interior Acrylic Latex Paint also has a flat sheen with enhanced application and hiding for enriched productivity and ultimate appearance. Merrill brags of this paint?s smoothness, hiding, and application compared to the previous formulas. He has us sold!

Overall, no matter which Sherwin Williams product you choose, each one will have its own advantages and disadvantages. It?s important to select the right one for the right situation, which is why we recommend hiring a professional to do the work for you.
