  Products that perform.  
 
  It’s what’s in the can that counts.
Benjamin Moore only produces premium quality paints that deliver outstanding results. Each product is designed to perform with extraordinary application properties, durability, scrubbability and longevity.

Paint Colours Last Longer with Colour LockTM Technology
Developed for our premium-quality Aura® interior and exterior paint, our groundbreaking Colour LockTM system protects paint colours from fading and rubbing off—even after repeated washings. We formulated Colour Lock with proprietary waterborne resins and colorants that lock in colour particles tightly throughout the paint—not just on the surface—like many other paints on the market. As a result, Aura paint with Colour Lock resists stains and looks freshly-applied for years.

Benjamin Moore’s Green Promise®
Benjamin Moore’s Green Promise® designation is our company’s assurance that this product meets—and often exceeds—rigorous environmental and performance criteria regarding VOCs, emissions, application, washability, scrubbability, and packaging, while also delivering the premium levels of performance you expect from Benjamin Moore.

Get the Gennex® Colorants Advantage
While typical colorants weaken paint, Benjamin Moore Gennex® colorants actually fortify it, delivering a durable finish with better fade resistance. Gennex-strengthened paint also yields superior hide, so you can cover stains and imperfections in fewer coats—using less paint overall and finishing the job more quickly. Environmentally friendly, Gennex colorants contain zero volatile organic compounds (VOCs)*, chemicals often found in other paints.

* Zero-VOC according to EPA Method 24.
