Introducing Corotech Command Paint

With the aid of recent technological advancements in the paint industry, Benjamin Moore has introduced a new line of durable Corotech high performance paint that has made its way into our paint supply Kahului store inventory. This Corotech COMMAND paint is ideal for commercial customers seeking a fast-drying paint that allows them to quickly return to service and boasts an easy application and clean-up. As with all Benjamin Moore paints with Gennex technology, this product is waterborne, in keeping with the commitment to more environmentally friendly merchandise. The Corotech COMMAND paint also saves time and money for commercial customers!

What are the benefits of Corotech COMMAND paint?

COMMAND is a single-component, multi-substrate solution, with a waterborne acrylic urethane enamel that assists with the quick and simple application process. In straightforward terms, this product was created for commercial customers seeking a rapid painting process with a durable paint that is also simple to apply. Due to its incredibly fast drying times, it’s quick and easy to recoat, doesn’t stall the service of your facility for extended periods of time, and allows for multiple projects to be managed at once. This saves on labor costs, streamlines the work into a more efficient process, and simplifies labor and maintenance responsibilities. 

First coat of Corotech COMMAND paint is dry to the touch in just fifteen minutes, while vertical surfaces can see a return to service in just one hour, and horizontal surfaces can see a return to regular foot and forklift traffic in just twenty-four hours. This allows commercial buildings to refrain from being closed to employee or consumer traffic for extended periods of time and prevents a loss of time due to that extended closure. 

COMMAND is a very flexible coating, suitable for a variety of surfaces, indoor and exterior surfaces alike. Ideal for warehouses and other high-traffic areas such as schools, workshops, hospitals, offices, and other spaces that are generally a difficult and highly involved process to paint or renovate. This paint is resistant to cracking or peeling and can even be applied on metal, masonry, vinyl, drywall, tile, PVC, and more.

Self-priming COMMAND can be applied directly to existing alkyd or epoxy coatings, most metals and plastics, laminates, masonry/concrete, and more, without need for extensive prep or priming, which saves additional time and money. This includes use on handrails, shelving, doors, floors, stairs, ramps, safetymarkers, curbs, cabinets, awnings, shutters, molding, piping, and more. COMMAND features updated abrasion resistance, to stand the test of time and wear in any environment.

COMMAND can be applied on the following surface materials:

  • Galvanized steel
  • Non-ferrous materials
  • Concrete/Masonry
  • Vinyl
  • Drywall
  • Ceramic Tile
  • PVC 
  • And more!

The paint is ideal for windows, doors, cabinets and other surfaces that commonly stick when painted, due to its block resistant, tack-free formula. Easy application allows for COMMAND to be applied in temperatures as low as 35 degrees Fahrenheit using a brush, roller, or spray, and clean-up can be achieved with simple soap and water. Paint can be thinned with water if desired, and does not require paint thinner at any point, freeing you from the messy and sometimes hazardous exposure to the chemicals used in paint thinners as well. Despite its easy application and clean-up, and its interior and exterior suited durability, COMMAND boasts an alluring low-sheen satin or classic gloss finish and bonds easily to most traditionally hard-to-coat surfaces. 

What are the benefits of Gennex Technology?

Benjamin Moore paints with Gennex technology have a myriad of benefits, the foremost being a consistently reputable quality that comes along with the name. Stable viscosity in these paints also ensures that application is smooth and not thin, or even too thick. Gennex colorants ensure that exterior paints will hold up in harsh weather and all climates, leading to less need for recoating these exterior surfaces over time, and the low odor and no VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) guarantees from Benjamin Moore ensure that these paints are allergy and asthma friendly, and contain no toxic fumes or harmful pollutants, like traditional paints.

In short, Gennex technology holds up to the test of time, can withstand natural elements, and ensures that the coloration is consistent with the standard for quality and excellence. With Benjamin Moore paints with Gennex technology, you will no longer need to agonize over how well ventilated your space is before applying! Gone are the days of opening all of the windows simply to paint a room, or losing an entire forty-eight hours of factory production in order to wait for the fumes to dissipate, along with  the hours wasted applying multiple coats of paint or recoating surfaces after just a couple years.

What are the benefits of Zero VOC paints?

VOC’s or Volatile Organic Compounds are pollutants in paints and other chemical compounds that evaporate into the air when exposed to room temperature climates. In hotter temperatures, these pollutants create a smog similar to that of car exhaust. These chemicals can cause a number of health problems ranging from general skin, nose, eye, ear, and throat irritations to much more serious problems like disruption of cognitive functions, including vision problems and loss of memory. It is suspected that long term exposure can actually cause cancer, and unfortunately, VOC’s are present in many mainstream paint products.

Benjamin Moore, in keeping with research about conscious business practices and eco-friendly products, has created VOC free paints that avoid these harmful health risks. The short-term and long-term benefits can both lead to better general health and prevent undue exposure to harmful chemicals. Lack of worry about toxic chemicals in the paint also makes it easier to apply, with no worries about too little ventilation in your workspace!

8 thoughts on “Introducing Corotech Command Paint

  1. Does the command paint have a strong smell to it? Does the paint smell linger?
    How many voc’s?
    Does urethane paint yellow over time?

    1. It has a typical paint odor but not overwhelming with adequate ventilation. Because of the quick re-coat time, this product does not have a lingering smell. Command contains a maximum of 150 grams per liter VOC / VOS (1.25 lbs. /gal.). To be considered Low VOC it must contain less than 100 grams per liter. The Command product does not yellow over time. Typically, it is oil-based polyurethane that tend to yellow over time.

    1. We always recommend a light sand before painting to ensure proper adhesion. We recommend 1 coat of primer and 2 coats of finish paint. If the surface has been previously painted with a latex paint, a light sand should be all you need for the Command to adhere. Command does adhere to hard to stick surfaces but we still recommend a light sand and in some cases a coat of primer before painting. Each project is different.

  2. I am confused about the paragraph above that talks about no VOC paints, as if this is one and then you state that it has 150 g/l? Is this a low VOC paint or not?

    1. Command is not a low VOC paint. The paragraph above refers to Benjamin Moore’s patented Gennex tints which does not add VOC’s to paint. Most tints are what adds VOC’s to paint, so even if a manufacturer refers to paint line being no-VOC or low VOC, VOC’s are added in during the tinting process. This, thankfully, is not the case with Benjamin Moore Gennex technology.
