Is Quality Hardware a hardware store that sells paint? Or is it a paint store that sells hardware? The answer is yes! In addition to all the hardware brands you have come to rely on Quality Hardware for, you can find the very best in paint and paint sundries here as well. And that includes Benjamin Moore’s Advance Waterborne Alkyd Paint.
What is a Waterborne Alkyd Paint?
A Waterborne Alkyd is a paint that consists of tiny droplets of traditional alkyd (oil-based) paint suspended in a water base. The result is a paint that cures to a hard, durable finish that you expect from the traditional oil-based paints, but cleans up like a latex-based paint. It really is the best of both worlds.
A Durable Paint That Stands Up to Scrubbing
Made for furniture, cupboards, and other high-touch surfaces that need to be able to handle frequent cleaning, Benjamin Moore‘s Advance Waterborne Alkyd paint delivers exceptional flow. Brushing on smoothly and evenly, this is not a fast-dry paint. But because of the extended open-time Advance has superior leveling. This creates a durable finish free from brush marks. And all this produces a hard, smooth, factory-like finish that will make your furniture, cabinets, and woodwork beautiful to the eye, and easy to clean.
VOCs are the volatile organic compounds that make traditional oil-based paint’s smell so strong. All the Advance paint is low in VOCs, with less than 50 grams in a liter of paint. So with less of that paint smell, you can get back to living your life sooner.
A Variety of Finishes and Colors
Benjamin Moore’s Advance Waterborne Alkyd paint is available in High-Gloss, Semi-Gloss, Satin, and Matte. And it can be tinted to any of thousands of Benjamin Moore colors. Quality Hardware also has formulas for thousands of additional colors from Sherwin Williams, Behr, Olympic, Valspar, and many more. And Quality Hardware can even color-match any smooth, clean sample color. And it is all done with the proprietary Benjamin Moore Gennex Colorants. These colorants actually strengthen the paint when it is mixed. So for a durable, beautiful finish that stands up to scrubbing and is available in a variety of finishes and a dizzying array of colors, you can’t beat Benjamin Moore‘s Advance Waterborne Alkyd Paint, available now at Quality Hardware.
