This is another of those topics that can get misconstrued on a forum. It's not a product elimination issue. They are simply not bottling up the ready mix colors. The dealer will have to mix it. Probably more of a pain for the dealer than for you. Just order the right amount, as custom mixes are usually non returnable.

Not say BM But for some colors Factory mix is the only way to go. Had a red barn color. If it had been mix out of a deep base it would have been a 3 coater + with a factory mix prime and go.

I loved Tudor Brown, but it is a very earlyu 90's color. If they get rid of just one make it Atrium white.

I think the reason that factory standard colors cover better is because the colorant is a powder base instead of a liquid colorant they use in the stores.

I have been told the factory colors have much finer grind to the tints which helps with coverage. I like the ability to check "now is that navajo or linen white" and return what I did not need.

We applied a ton of Navajo and Liner white to homes, man. We loved Navajo on the exteriors especially for its covering ability.

I still remember when I first started going to BM over 20 years ago and they were selling a product called pro vinyl. Anyone remember that stuff? I think it was the Grandfather of Prosaver?

As of last week BM is no longer manufacturing the following:

Interior Alkyd Stains - Discontinued
ALL FACTORY COLORS int/ext
363/163 ironclad - getting relabeled & re-named
some of the DTM is going to be discontinued
5gal buckets of aura Interior except base1

Stock is still available until we all deplete the warehouses of it

there is more, but cant think of it off the top of my head

This is all because of the purchase of Complimentary Coatings (i.e. - coronado/lenmar/maxum/trinity & insl-x) They are going to be re-labeling some of the other products as benjamin moore owned brands and replacing their own product with these.
