Has anyone used Benjamin Moore's Advance

bothNovember 16, 2010

Was wondering your thoughts on BM Advance waterborne interior alkyd. I went to the paint store thinking I was going to get Cabinet Coat instead I was given the opinion to get BM Advance to paint my cabinets. So far it is going on well with minimal brush marks. I am just worried now about hardness. Is one harder and more durable than the other? BM advance ingredience are water, titanium dioxide, alkyd polymer, polyalkyl glycol ether, and propylene glycol. Does anyone know what cabinet coat is made of.

I went with the BM paint because I wanted a BM color not a CC color and the guy at the paint store said I should use the brand of paint that comes with the brand's colors. I used BM Linen White.

So any opinions would be great. Thanks AMy

It will take about a week or so but the Advance will dry as hard as a conventional oil. Using a fan to circulate air will speed up dry time. Cabinet Coat is an acrylic and is also quite durable - just completely different chemistry.
