Default What's everyone's opinion on Muralo paints

New ownership of an old paint store close by is carrying Muralo paints now. I've used the interior semigloss (i think it's called Superpaint) once before on interior trim that took a lot of abuse. Held up awesome but i wasn't thrilled with the sheen (looked like someone applied a coat of rubber to the trim).

I'm wondering what the exterior line is like. Anyone use it much?

Superpaint is a SW brand FYI

I have used the exterior muralo and was actually quite pleased. Decent coverage and nice flow. I have yet to use the interior.

I think it may be called "Superfinish" then. My memory fails me.

Ten Years Gone.

Then as it was, then again it will be
An' though the course may change sometimes
Rivers always reach the sea

My take on a necro thread filtered through some Led Zep lyrics.

PAC, it looks like you are the one who ressurrected this thread if I am not mistaken. I am always happy to say that the best trim paint I have ever used was Muralo Ultra. It would be nice if there was a California Paints dealer near me.

You are correct, and that would have been even more appropriate choice.

Absolutely agree. So disappointed when it was no longer available. If I’m not mistaken it was the first waterborne trim paint available in this area.

I believe Skokie Paint on Lincoln also has Muralo/California, but of neither them ,or Diamond has a clue about Cal Ultraplate!
