No longer is oil-paint required for your trim and woodwork. The long-drying time, harsh odor and difficult clean-up would ultimately result in a beautiful, smooth, and hard finish. These oil-based products are less common due to environmental concerns. Benjamin Moore Advance is a unique product that takes the benefit of oil/alkyd based products into a water-based solution.
Benjamin Moore Advance has a simple soap and water clean-up but it behaves like a more robust oil-based paint. It comes in four (4) finishes - matte, pearl, semi-gloss and gloss. Advance is a waterborne alkyd, which means it is an oil-based paint with a soap and water cleanup. It is a huge benefit to avoid thinners and mineral spirits.
Once the paint cures, it provides a hard finish for cabinet doors and high-traffic trim. The durable coating on woodwork, cabinets, and furniture provides an impact resistant coating on a surface that is subject to high impact. The smooth finish offered by Advance provides an excellent look. It naturally takes longer to dry and will level out much longer. As a result, it has a long open time - you will not feel like you are in a rush to complete your job in order to avoid brush marks. With an easy clean up, Advance ensures you can complete your job in a timely manner. Advance has a Low VOC formula which reduces its impact on the environment.
In sum, Benjamin Moore Advance is a great product for kitchen cabinets, trim and woodworking. Come to your local Benjamin Moore retailer in Mississauga to discuss this product with one of our paint product experts.
