Benjamin Moore Paint Types Explained

Share is an authorized Benjamin Moore paint dealer. Owned and operated by Breslow Home Design Center, a third generation paint store chain located in New Jersey, MyPerfectColor offers the full line of products that Benjamin Moore offers.

Benjamin Moore makes many different grades of paint. For interior use, Benjamin Moore makes the Aura, Regal, Ben, Super Spec and Super Hide paint lines. For exterior use, Benjamin Moore offers the Aura Exterior, ArborCoat stains, Moorgard, Ben Exterior and Super Spec exterior lines. Each of these lines offers similar finishes (such as flat, eggshell, semi-gloss, etc.), but each level in quality will offer degrees of paint washability, color retention, low odor and environmental friendliness. The Benjamin Moore Arborcoat is Benjamin Moore's top quality exterior stain line.

The best interior and exterior paint lines are the Aura. Aura is Benjamin Moore's latest paint technology - their gennex platform, which features brand new resin and colorant technology for superior results. The second level would include the Regal interior or Moorgard exterior lines of paint, and the Moorwood line of exterior stain.

The Ben interior and exterior lines of paint offer a value priced quality level of paint. The Ben lines are based on the new gennex technology, but a less expensive price point for those who don't want to spend for the additional quality of Regal or Aura.

Super Spec and Super Hide are Benjamin Moore's commercial grades of paint. These are best suited to commercial projects and new construction.
