Does anybody know when the new alkyd hybrid paint is coming out from Benjamin Moore.
I heard throughthe grapevine that there is a new paint by Benjamin Moore that will dry harder than Advance and dry faster.
Possibly in the Corotech line.
I would be very anxious to try this paint on kitchen cabinets.

Apparently in April..ish. Talk of the town. My rep says hes getting it in my hands ASAP. Super pumped on this. Hopefully not overhyped.

I think Coco and Pac knew something about this. Sounds pretty interesting. I asked the girls in the paint department I go to about it, but they had no clue what I was talking about. Sadly, there hasn't been a BM rep show up around these parts in decades.

It is under corotech label, and will tint on gennex. Seems BM is moving other waterborne inslx and corotech products to gennex as well. No word on cabinet coat yet.



Urethane acrylic. Interior/exterior. Floors, DTM, Cabinets, Trim... designed for spray application very fast dry though though supposed to be able to roll small sections.


I've heard sometime in the late spring, but nothing official.

I think it is going to be called Commander or something like that. I could be wrong though. My BM rep was in town with the chemist that created Scuff-X and I got to quiz him for a few minutes on stuff. I could be remember the name wrong though.

Corotech 'Command'. All I have seen was a picture of a product label.

So it's better than Scuff-X? I guess the poly component protects it from chemicals and hand oils. I wonder how well it will perform in dark colors? That's the real test for scuff resistance.

Why would they not put it under the BM label? Few know about Corotech.

My understanding is that it will be marketed more towards the industrial clients rather than interior painters.

I warned him that painters are waiting and ready to try it on cabinets. We will see how the learning curve is. My crews like how scuff-X hand applies so hopefully it matches that.

Can we assume that if this new paint is going to be similar to PPG breakthrough that Benjamin Moore will probably work out all of the problems. As with all Ben Moore paints all of the issues and drawbacks are usually figured out in the factory before they release the product to the general public. I would hope the same with this new paint that we are excited to try out.if what we hear is true, this paint will take the place of oil since oil enamel will no longer be available for sale and this paint will also be harder and it's finish then Advance

Honestly I'm not sure. Satin is all I use in cabinets so that's fine but I'm pretty sure it comes in semi too. I only used it on a couple jobs because I was having it shipped to SC from a store in New Hampshire. Those jobs were a standard off whites. It's such a nice paint but having it shipped was taking a risk that I wouldn't need another gallon and not be able to get it. Plus they would only tint Cali colors which was a pain in the arse but I understood their logic.

Cabinet coat with Gennex tints

It is under corotech label, and will tint on gennex. Seems BM is moving other waterborne inslx and corotech products to gennex as well. No word on cabinet coat yet.

Cabinet Coat can already be tinted on Gennex. It is the only way we do it. We had a problem with cratering on two jobs and we narrowed it down to a reaction with the raw umber tint. The BM technical specialist suggested we use the Gennex instead and it solved the problem. Ever since then, we always use the Gennex tint.
