Twenty First Century Paint.
Paint is no longer just paint. Technology has come to the rescue and it’s pretty cool. We have computers we use a phones, where internet searches, restaurant reviews, GPS navigation, social media, music and videos are considered normal. We have door bells we can answer when we’re 1/2 way around the world. Or we can ask our home assistant to turn on the lights or set up a mood. Or our refrigerator can tell us when we’re out of orange juice, then reorder for us. But until now, our paint is just putting color on our wall.
This paint is revolutionary. Inside the paint is high tech chemicals that can clean the air. Or self clean dirt. And it can even kill bacteria and mold and even destroy viruses.
It uses the energy in light to make chemical reactions. The chemical reactions help keep our house clean and healthy.
Does it work. I haven’t run a test, so I don’t know. Does our air smell any different? I can’t tell. How about killing nasties? I can’t tell you either.
What I do know – this paint is thick. Make that, super thick. The instructions say to add a cup of water, which I did. I tried to mix it and it’s still thick. I pulled out my power mixer and … it’s still thick! I was tempted to thin it out, but I wanted to follow the directions, so I poured it in the roller tray – did I mention that it’s thick!
The thick mixture is definitely more work to roll on the wall. I was tempted to spray it, but I had it in the roller pan, so I figured I’d continue. My normal method of rolling is to get paint on the wall, then roll it out – let the roller do the work. Overlapping the last section, while still wet, so no lines show. This paint is so thick, I had to modify my normal process. I rolled it on the wall, then dipped and rolled a second time. Then started overlapping the new section. It worked well and then came time to cut in the top, bottom and corners – my helper does that, while I continue rolling. Keep the assembly line moving! No problem! I went around the room and was considering a second coat. I took a step back and was impressed – looks like one coat will work.
I let it dry and it looked great. Maybe I should’ve done a second coat to get a thicker film, but I don’t think it needed it. The cut in at the top and corners was a little thin and I could’ve done a second coat, but it looks good.
**I will make a slight correction to what I wrote above. I currently use Behr Marquise for most of my painting, because I like how it flows and that it has some sort of dirt lifter – easier to keep clean. And I can attest to it working. So, I’m hopeful and actually pretty confident that the new High Tech paint will do what it claims to. For slightly more than other high grade paints, I see good value with this paint. It not only looks great, but it helps with house chores and it does good for air quality and our health.
I recommend you give this paint a try. This may soon become our go-to paint!**
