Improvements in Metallic Mediums


 
Based on feedback from painters like you, Proceed Metallic Mediums have undergone reformulation to improve the appearance of the finish, ease of application, and durability.  
 
The changes will have an effect on tinting strength, with the new Mediums requiring less colorant.  
 
 
However, your existing color recipes can be readily adjusted by using proportionately less colorant, as follows: 
• Colors based on Metallic Medium - Copper: use 19% less colorant (multiply the amount of each colorant in your recipe by 0.81) 
• Colors based on Metallic Medium - Bronze: use 21% less colorant (multiply each colorant in your recipe by .79) 
• Colors based on Metallic Medium - Gold: use 15% less colorant (multiply each colorant in your recipe by 0.85) 
• Colors based on Metallic Medium - Pearl: use 5.5% less colorant (multiply each colorant in your recipe by 0.945) 
However, keep in mind that the smoother surface and higher sheen of the new formulas may have an effect on how the color is perceived, so some additional adjustment of the formulas may be necessary, depending on the color. 
As the new formulas go into production, we will introduce 1-quart sizes of the Metallic Mediums, in addition to the gallon containers.
