Cool All whites are NOT the same???

I have a job coming up painting a portion of exterior railings and spindles.
I believe the original coat is BM. It is flat white.
All of the homeowners samples are BM.
No exterior white was left for touch up..( How many of us leave stock white for touch ups)?
Anyway the ? Would there be a notable difference if I used SW Superpaint flat? (BM store is 50 miles in the other direction.)
I can only assume that all company's whites are a different formula.
Any thoughts?
This is not about touching up spots. I am painting the whole section of railings but it is adjacent to other trim work where it will be stopped so there is some leeway.
Thanks for your input and I hope everyone is having a rocking season so far!

There are more whites than anything. Put a little on, check it out.
Best if you paint a whole something, like a spindle, rather than just a spot.
I carry tints for just these situations, when a little tweeking will save hours of running around.

Flat paint on exterir railings? whatever. To each his own. I just put one coat of Super
White Duration Satin on over a preexisting white and it covered really well. I did wash al the mildew off with bleach and sanded with 100 grit first. Two coats of white over white should work out.

When I first saw the title I was wondering why it wasn't in the PZ.

Yeah I feel whites of different companies are different so you should have a patch test before you start with it.

Matching stock whites, that have very little pigment in them, is tough.
Sometimes just a drop is all it needs.

Thanks for the input.
I would never use flat on trim but this is a repaint.
I picked up some BM today (green can Eco?) hope it's the right stuff..
Have a good one.

Since you don't have the original you can just take a spindle in to have it matched.
