Festool Green -Sherwin Williams paint code
« on: October 12, 2019, 07:18 PM »
Just had some Festool Green made up at Sherwin Williams.  I took in the T-LOC off one of my systainers and they matched it.  I had them mix me up a gallon of their Acrylic Latex and from my eyes it looks dead on perfect.

That's cool. I'm a Benjamin Moore dealer and as a rule of thumb, with Benjamin Moore anyway, each color match formula applies to a specific paint. Meaning regal select, advanced, aura, etc will have different formulas. Also, sheen (flat, eggshell, satin, etc) will affect the formula as well. Just thought I'd throw that out there if anyone was interested.

I believe that's also the same situation with the SW color match system. I know there is a different formula for Lazy Gray flat vs Lazy Gray satin.

Yes, each product has it's own base (again, I can't speak for SW) and the colorants will have different effects on the bases. It would probably be easier to find the closest stock color through a color match than it would apply to all finishes and lines of paint since it's all computerized these days. Again, just food for thought.....

Marvin windows have their own proprietary paint colors for their window trim. I removed part of a Marvin extrusion and brought that into SW. They shot it with a laser and the match was perfect the first time. It took longer for the paint to dry than for them to electronically color match the trim.

20+ years ago, before the computerized color matching, the best color matcher was a person at the Benny Moore store. Each store had at least 1 color match expert, however that process could take an hour or longer...it was called trial & error.  [smile]

@Cheese LOTS of trial and error!
