New Valspar Formulation


I am brand new to this site but I was out investigating after reading a lot of your replies.

I think I have come across a new material for screen paint that looks very promising. It calls for 1 Quart of Valspar EE2050B - Illusion and 1 Quart of EE2064 - Blue Illusion.
if nothing else, go to Lowes and look at the sample of EE2064 Blue Illusion. It looks to me to have excellent and clean reflectivity properties and a nice color in between the suggested Behr "Silver Screen and kilz2 - except with much better reflectivity.

Anyone care to check this out? I think I am sold on it !

Scott

Scott,

Welcome to the Shack. I split your post off as a new thread since it didn't have anything to do with re-rolling a Goo screen.

Where did this formula come from? I've never heard of it.

Re: New Valspar Formulation


Well, as I mentioned I am just investigating it now. Will be following up with my results. I plan on trying it (spraying) on a 3/8" - one sided melamine board with reinforcements commonly seen on this site.

I was just wondering if anyone else had tried it before.

Scott

Re: New Valspar Formulation


Hi Scott, another hearty welcome!

From what I have found online, Valspar "Illusion" is a color in the Valspar line in the 'Earth Elements" color palette, but it has no special reflective properties. Is this the paint you are referring to?
