Yes, at N9 C&S is a very light gray mix. My test batch of the Valspar Ultra Premium Enamel/LBVS 1:1 mix (which should be the same as using Behr #1850) was even a little lighter at N9.2.I just applied my first coat of 1:1 LBVS + Behr 1850 and it is surprisingly white. Will see final result tomorrow!!!
Hi Bram!Would it help to use a neutral light gray base instead of white to combine with LBVS to make the screen a little darker and still have good whites?
Yes, CSMS does not use mica, but rather some form of aluminum coated flake. This was demonstrated by a user at another forum who needed a screen that retained light polarization so he could use it for watching true 3D movies. He was recommended by others to try various mica-based paint mixes and when he did NONE of them worked! They ALL lost polarization in the reflected image. Mica depolarizes light.LBVS uses titanium dioide coated mica. Smart Craft uses different ingredients for reflectivity? I tried to post a link to the PDF with the infor from LVBS but are not allowed to post links yet.. there goed my whole message :wits-end: Looking foreward to the test results of the sample C&S International :daydream:
