High-Performance Exterior Paint Colour

Once again, Benjamin Moore has pushed paint and chemistry to new heights.

Our chemists engineered AURA® Exterior’s unique resin to offer even greater levels of colour depth, reduced chalking, and UV- and fade-resistance.

In addition to its new acrylic resin, we’ve added new high-performing additives that improve resistance to surfactant leaching.

3 Unique AURA® Exterior Technologies

Proprietary paint ingredients and technology have long set Benjamin Moore apart and are key to quality painting results.

Ultra-premium AURA® Exterior includes:

  1. Colour Lock™ Technology: Available only in AURA® brand paint, Colour Lock™ embeds pigment within binding molecules and locks colour into the paint film.
  2. New Acrylic Resin: Available only in AURA® Exterior, this new resin provides excellent film formation, improved UV and fade resistance, and superior gloss retention.
  3. Gennex® Colour Technology: Removes unnecessary components that weaken paint, which results in better hide, flow and levelling, and durability.

The Beauty of a Premium Exterior Paint

When it comes to the just-right paint colour for your home exterior consider these tips:

  • Draw inspiration from your home's surroundings, from landscaping to neighbouring exterior design styles.
  • Highlight your exterior’s architectural elements, using paint colour to creatively highlight trim, gables, columns, porches, and more.
  • Remember sheen: While low lustre finishes on home exteriors are popular, consider a higher sheen on your exterior: AURA® Exterior’s exclusive acrylic resin ensures superior gloss retention for satin and soft gloss exterior finishes.
  • Remember your front door: Extend a warm welcome with the right colour. We love AURA® Exterior paint in a satin or soft gloss for a beautiful, slightly glossy finish. Get our expert tips for repainting your front door on your own!
