A Look At Sherwin-Williams Emerald Interior Paint
A few specific lines of paint are more commonly used in certain regions of the US. Local companies and contractors often have a paint product of choice. Interior painters also have products that are preferred.
At A Touch of Color Painting, we don’t stick to a particular brand; we aim for efficient, high-quality results. Let’s take a look at Sherwin-Williams Emerald Interior paint.
It is no surprise that Emerald has hit a home run for Sherwin-Williams. In efforts to target homeowners and increase sales, Emerald was introduced late 2012 with a heavy price tag.
Compared to other top-grade Sherwin Williams products, we didn’t find an increase in coverage while using Emerald. The product is a zero VOC product, but not the only one in Sherwin Williams Catalog!
Emerald contains a decent amount of solids. However, there is a powerful odor that comes with the resin used in this product. The odor smells extremely toxic. Several interior painters have commented on the odor of this particular product in forums across the nation.
Even after being a zero voc product if a painter says paint smells strong, you know the odor must be somewhat intense.
An Emerald Conclusion
Overall, we found Emerald to be a thinner version of Duration Home. A thin consistency allows the paint to spread easier and surprisingly with less spattering than Duration home. Emerald contains less than 43 percent solids. This percentage is very similar to that of Sherwin Williams Interior Super Paint, Cashmere, and Duration.
So, why the huge price tag?
It could be the emulsification process, how it is refined, or the fact that it is a new product. At any rate, the product has been introduced to compete with Benjamin Aura.
