Default New SW tints?

I was told that SW will be implementing a new change in their tints to a no VOC colorant in the next few months. Any of you SW sellers want to comment? How is this going to change/effect the current products?

Yeah, but I think they will still have the old tint mach's for a while anyway. They are going to water colors like BM. There will be a leaning curve I'm sure.

Never argue with a fool - they will drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

There are stores already testing it out. I bet if you ask your rep there is one close to you. There is one store in my area out of about 8-9 in my work radius.

Bout time

Sherwin Williams new slogan "Playing catch up since 1866"


The acrylic colorants are much better IMO in certain applications. Dark colors especially. Exterior's fade is much less, and interiors burnish resistance....the two largest benefits IMO.

I like to think of it as a strategic move both in waiting to perfect their technology before releasing their new tints, and judging how well BM does with hocking theirs.

Not to mention SW released their modified waterborne alkyd long before BM has.
anywho.

Not looking forward to the change one bit.
