Benjamin Moore Exterior Paint Technology
Proprietary paint ingredients and technology have long set Benjamin Moore apart and are key to quality painting results.
Acrylic Resin Formula
Benjamin Moore engineered AURA®Exterior’s unique acrylic resin for greater depth of color and increased UV- and fade-resistance. Available only in AURA® Exterior, this new resin provides substantial film formation from the very first coat of paint, for a faster job that uses less paint. It creates a breathable coating that resists chalking and blistering for long-term durability and superior gloss retention. High-performing additives also combat humid conditions to reduce drying times and resist stains caused by surfactant leaching.
Proprietary Color Lock® Technology
Available only in AURA®brand paint, Benjamin Moore's proprietary Color Lock formula embeds the pigment in binding molecules that lock the color into the paint film. AURA® Exterior paint's dense pigments offer superior resistance to color rub-off, UV damage and fading. It’s no wonder contractors and homeowners choose Benjamin Moore AURA® as the best paint available for exterior paint projects.
Gennex® Color Technology
Most paint colorants use certain chemicals that make them easier to mix into different types of paint. These chemical components actually weaken the paint and affect its performance. With Gennex® waterborne colors, Benjamin Moore designed a new system of colorants specifically for their paints. They removed unnecessary chemicals to create a simpler, stronger colorant formula. Unlike many paint brands that are less durable in darker colors, Gennex by Benjamin Moore offers Low-VOC and Zero-VOC paints in vibrant, true colors that have proven longevity across the entire spectrum.
Benjamin Moore Exterior Paint Sheens
AURA® Exterior paints are available in four sheens: Flat, Low-Lustre, Satin and Semi-Gloss. While AURA paints are known for their washability and scuff-resistance, remember that flat and low-lustre or eggshell sheens make touch ups easier.
- Flat is good at hiding surface imperfections and delivers beautiful color; it's typically used on siding.
- Low-Lustre is easier to clean and offers rich color with a slight glow. It's often used on siding, soffits, porches or trim.
- Satin stays cleaner and stands up to scrubbing better than Flat; it's a practical choice for door and window trim, shutters and architectural details.
- Semi-Gloss is more moisture resistant and easy to clean; it's popular for entry doors, shutters, architectural details and trim.
