Muralo paint - can an older color formula be recreated?

Posted by nippy2 (My Page) on

We used Muralo Ultra semi gloss waterborne enamel paint for trim in 1994. I want to use the same trim paint and color as I repaint our living room, but don't have the name of the white color.

The formula is written a little differently from today's: 7592 - 1
L - 4
C - 1
Printed on the cover: 759212E104

The front label reads: Ultra Semi Gloss Enamel, Waterborne, Durable tile-like finish. 7592 Custom White (formerly 750).

Can this formula be recreated to produce the same shade of white for our trim?

Yes, if you have a Muralo dealer to take it too. If not any good paint store should be able to match it, if you have any left in the old can.

Unfortunately, the paint has separated and dried to a thick chunk. Cannot even get a stick into it to try to stir.

I will ask the Muralo dealer today about re-creating an old formula

That's so little formula...5 shots total...that I'd probably shoot it as is into their closest current paint series.

On 2nd thought....I might shoot it @ 75% of that formula, and see where it takes me!!
It's a little bit of Brown, & some Yellow-Oxide.
It may even accidentally be the formula for an existing color-name of theirs!

>>> Realize however-
You've got a TWENTY yr.-old color!!
Paints & colorants have changed A LOT!

You can also call Muralo directly if the dealer is no help, and a real human will answer the phone.
