Choosing an Interior Paint Sheen
Sheen refers to paint's shininess. When deciding on paint sheen, consider the condition of the wall and whether the area is high/low traffic. Here's a partial list to get started:
Choosing an Exterior Paint Sheen
Our super-premium products offer the same durability and washability in all sheens, so the selection of the finish is more of a personal preference. But here are a few things to remember:
Choosing a Stain Finish
Stain opacity levels range from clear to solid, with the amount of pigment in a stain determining its opacity. Translucent, Semi-Transparent, and Semi-Solid Stains are designed to protect without completely obscuring the natural color and texture of wood. As the opacity moves towards solid, less grain shows through the finish. In contrast, solid stains will completely mask the wood grain, while allowing the wood texture to show through, and the greater its protection will be over time.
What is VOC?
VOC means Volatile Organic Compounds. The paint industry is filled with definitions of what "green paint" is. Other manufacturers use tints that add VOCs to their paints, but Benjamin Moore's waterborne tinting technology ensures that our paints retain their low - or zero-VOC properties.
Added stiffness gives Benjamin Moore extra-firm professional paintbrushes a strong touch. They provide exceptional capacity for the fastest results and maintain a sharp edge for controlled painting, even in hot or humid conditions. The customized blend delivers the highest levels of performance with Benjamin Moore paints.
The Aura roller cover was specifically designed to be the ideal roller for use with Benjamin Moore super-premium Aura paints. It provides the optimal balance of surface smoothness and hide, while also offering shed resistance.
