Glidden Professional Best For Task

  1. 1. Best-for-Task Products
  2. 2. Best-for-Task Products Glidden Professional™ products are specifically designed for professional painters by experienced chemists using quality raw materials. They are designed not to fade, even in rich, saturated tones. Products excel in hide, coverage, washability, touch-up, and scrubability. Before our paint goes in the can, paint formulas are torture-tested in our labs, and the results are conclusive: in independent tests, our formulas were rated higher in quality than many more expensive brands, and as good as one that costs over $50 per gallon. To you that means: no call-backs, no wasted time to fix the paint, and less labor costs. That, of course, means you have more satisfied customers, more referrals, more time, and more profits. Whether you are spraying a new commercial building, repaint or apartment, or any other painting job – we have the right product for your job – we call it our Best-for-Task paint portfolio. The following shows some of our product testing procedures. Glidden Professional offers paint products designed specifically for professional painters, made and tested to be the Best-for-Task. Durability Select these top quality products when a long-lasting, highly durable coating is required. They are made with quality acrylics to provide superior abrasion resistance and toughness, extending the lifecycle of paint. They are ideal for use in commercial and residential applications. These products meet rigid MPI standards and are low VOC. This is an ASTM test method measuring the adhesion ability of paint films. The surface is cross-hatched with a knife and a special tape is applied to the area. The tape is then peeled from the surface and any paint removal is noted. The Glidden Professional Diamond 450 eggshell paint (on left) adheres well while a more expensive competitive product fails due to poor bonding of the paint to the surface. This test measures the blocking of four paints. Blocking is when two painted sur- faces, (e.g. a door and a door jam) stick together. In this picture the top panels were placed against the lower panels for several hours and then were peeled apart. Note how the Glidden Professional Diamond 350 semi-gloss paint on the far left resists blocking while the three other products damage the paint film.

After drying an X is rolled out with a mini-roller to simulate touch-up. Note the poor sheen uniformity and the high visibility of the X on the left panel, while it is virtually invisible on the Ultra-Hide™ 15O interior paint panel on the right.
