Default Benjamin Moore advance ??? Crap or not?

I used this semi gloss advance today on existing baseboards. Baseboards were painted with latex previously. The advance wanted to sag. Only 2.5 base. Usually I do put a generous coat on so it smoothies out nice. But this stuff wanted to run off. Idk if its the product or the surface. I had to put a few thin thin coats on amd brush it out lots to solve the problem. Just seemed like twice the work if I were to use a regular latex or acrylic paint.

If your putting it on thick enough that its running its not going to cure properly either. Treat it like any other oil paint. Thin coats <4mils. Get product on the surface quickly and lay it out. Advance may be a little learning curve to get the technique down but it produces a finish that most (all?) current latex paints cannot replicate.

I'm a recent convert from ProClassic to Advance. I love the stuff, especially the hardness of the finish. I will still use PC, but, due to all the info on here about Advance, it wouldn't take much for me to switch out completely.

Ive never had an issue with Advance. You can NOT put it on too thick though. Of course it will run. Its a slow drying self leveling paint. Basically an oil paint.
After that, its probably one of the toughest waterborne paints on the market, so definitely not crap.

For me advance is a finicky product. I have had some flash issues when going over previously painted surfaces. Never had that problem with pro classic semi. ( 2hr vs 18hr dry also) I use both depending on the job. Has anyone used p&l aquanamel ? Miss the old satin improve!!

Impervo rocks. The other store in bozeman stocks satin impervo. The hardware store in manhattan actually has a few of the old pre-'red' can satin impervo on their shelves haha that stuff must be ancient.

I picked up a mistinted semigloss pastel base. it was very similar to emerald urethane that I tried, its probably just a relabeled formula.


I also had a sample of C2 cabinet&trim in a deep base. I brushed out some MDF almost 2 months ago and that board still has quite an solvent-odor to it and the film is quite soft like it didn't fully cure. I do not recommend that at all.
