Here’s my 2¢: I’ve used Scuff-X on cabinets, it does set quickly which is nice. The eggshell finish looks perfect for cabinetry, would probably bump up to satin for trim. I’ve used the matte on walls, and it goes on really nice, rolls really smooth and you feel like there’s a good coat of paint on there after you roll a wall or room. It doesn’t feel thin like Regal if you know what I mean.
However, I personally believe that each product was formulated for a specific reason, especially with Benjamin Moore. Scuff-X was formulated as a commercial wall paint to resist scuffing (ie. gyms, schools, scuff prone areas). Scuffing and getting dirty are not the same thing. I have seen a few tests done from other pro painters who tested not only the scuff resistance, but the overall durability as a whole.
The outcome was what I was afraid of: scuff-resistant? Yes. Durable? Ehhh… So if I’m using it in a home, I MAY use it for trim, but definitely won’t be using it for cabinets again. Really, not best used for components that will get dirty and be washed regularly (for example, it’ll probably get washed off of trim and cabinetry, walls too, after extended cleaning).
So, is it a good product? I have no doubt! Is it best for cabinets and heavy wear places like trim and doors? Probably not. Honestly my go to is Breakthrough v250 satin for everyday trim packs and cabinets. Advance takes too long to dry when I’m trying to make money on project turnaround. Breakthrough dries super fast and hard, sticks well without primer in a lot of situations, and has a much nicer finish than BM Command. I do love some Impervo though 😁 That’s reserved though for clients who will pay for the time and material to use the good stuff and get the best product for their money. Unless we’re talking 2k, but that’s a whole different setup…
