Default Mythic Paint Experience

This past week we used Mythic in New Orleans on some Katrina restoration work. I was very impressed. No odor that I could really notice, smooth and creamy, brushed well (even a rose color, one coat) rolled great. No headache (common with me with any brand acrylic interior coating).
If you hav'nt tried it yet, you owe yourself to see for yourself. Pictures next week! Give it a test drive.

Absolutely good stuff. We have been testing it in our shop. As an example, we applied a deep red over some previously painted bright green trim and the coverage is great. Brushes out really nice, and dries! Thanks Keir.

I'm hoping somebody can directly compare AFM Safecoat to Mythic in an all-encompassing way, KeirK included . . . It must be about nine years ago that I used Safecoat on a big project on Long Island, working for somebody else at the time. I remember being very skeptical but pretty impressed with the products. I have never used Mythic.

Some things to consider:

-Having read through the other Mythic thread, I now understand, at least on a superficial level, the differences between VOC's and toxins. Is Safecoat non-toxic as well?

- I remember Safecoat being thick, almost like a paste, right out of the can, but thinning it almost a gallon per five gallons. It then flowed like a typical water-based paint. Mythic?

- I don't remember how Safecoat leveled out. Can anyone speak to this. What about Mythic?

- The biggest challenge we faced with Safecoat was that it wasn't sold locally and we had to order it direct. We were constantly waiting for orders after color changes, add-ons, mis-mixes. Has anyone dealt with either company lately in this manner? Though a lot of the good/bad about this topic falls on the delivery company, it doesn't hurt to have the paint compnay at least sensative to the issues. Anyone?

Thanks,
Mack

We have been dabbling with it on loose trim in our shop for a couple of weeks now. The coverage characteristics, brushability, leveling and dry times are excellent.

We have been getting it FedEx-ed directly from Mythic (twice now) and it takes about a week. We will be taking it into the field tomorrow for the first time on a residential repaint, using flat ceiling, semigloss trim and eggshell wall paints. Should have alot of feedback across the range of products in a couple of days. So far...and this is coming from a BM snob, its really, really good.

-Having read through the other Mythic thread, I now understand, at least on a superficial level, the differences between VOC's and toxins. Is Safecoat non-toxic as well?

KeirK: Some of Safe Coats products are non-toxic, some arent. If you look on their website you wll find, a flat and a zero VOC flat, same with eggshell etc. The reason they carry two products I suspect is because of the poor performance of their zero VOC products. Our products are all NON toxic, we will not have a product that contains them, our products outperform the market leaders in the ASTM scrub tests and overall performance. Safe Coat is marketed as a "green" product and belongs there. Mythic is a performing product, it beats out the big boys and has no safety risks. There is a difference.

- I remember Safecoat being thick, almost like a paste, right out of the can, but thinning it almost a gallon per five gallons. It then flowed like a typical water-based paint. Mythic?

KeirK: Mythic, does not need to be thinned, it is designed from the ground up to have all of the charachteristics of the Highest performing brands plus...

- I don't remember how Safecoat leveled out. Can anyone speak to this. What about Mythic?
KeirK: See others comments, you know my answer.

- The biggest challenge we faced with Safecoat was that it wasn't sold locally and we had to order it direct. We were constantly waiting for orders after color changes, add-ons, mis-mixes. Has anyone dealt with either company lately in this manner? Though a lot of the good/bad about this topic falls on the delivery company, it doesn't hurt to have the paint compnay at least sensative to the issues. Anyone?

KeirK: I couldn't agree more. It is really difficult to love a product you cant get locally. We are on a tremendous growth spree adding stores quickly. We will have a national presence by years end, and this will be a moot point. However, in the shortfall, we are shipping direct where we do not have stores. You can have it rushed etc... We are very sesitive to time, and although we ship out samples cheaply, we do try to make deadlines carrier dependent.

Thanks,
Mack
Thanks Mack, great questions.

I normally use BM, but when Mythic is in my area it will become my product. I have never used Safecoat. I hope mythic expands rapidly!

We are going to put a dealer locator on the site. We have been revamping the whole site, but you can always call the hotline for up to date dealers. Additionally, if there is not a dealer in your area, you can either call in an order or order online shortly. We are adding dealers very quickly, but if you have a preferred dealer you want us to talk to, please send me a private message and I will have them contacted.
Thanks,
Keir

Kerik any chance in getting a sample gallon or two? I've used other brands such as BM Eco spec and so on, not impressed. SW Durations is nice however not a true "Green" product (nor is BM Aura). The dealers near me (Phila.)want $52.00 per gallon for Mythic paint. I generally work w/ a sales rep. and get better pricing.... Your thoughts?
