Ultra performance and application for professional results every time!

Create the ecologically and safe climate. 

Do you know why other producers do not offer the real green paint with Zero VOC* (volatile organic comopunds) content?

The answer is obvious. Because only Benjamin Moore's paints are tinted in innovative, ecological tinting system, based on the colorants completely free of harmful VOC*s. In the result only we keep the promise of real green product with 0 VOCs independently of choosen color - from white to black! The others do not.

General description: waterborne, eggshell, latex acrylic paint with zero-VOC* content and innovative „Cross-Linking Resin Technology” technology.

* ZERO VOC - despite the use of the latest technologies in the production process, it is impossible to obtain a paint completely free from volatile organic compounds, i.e. with“ absolute ZERO VOC ”. Our products contain trace amounts of volatile organic compounds, but their negligible content minimizes negative impact on the natural environment and the human environment. American legislation and US industry guidance including EPA Method 24 allow for products containing less than 1g/l VOC to use the designation "zero VOC". It allows to distinguish a product with such a low VOC content from typical paints containing at least a few grams of VOC per 1 liter.

In compliance to the Federal Trade Commission no VOCs are added to paint during the production process. Due to our innovative GENNEX Platform tinting system, which is based on “ZERO VOC” colorants, all of our tinted paints fall within the same "ZERO VOC" classification. 


Product intended for painting of interior walls and ceilings as well as additional elements like cornices and rosettes. 

Due to ecological nature (zero VOC*s in both the base and the colorants), the paint reduces to minimum possibility of appearing allergy reactions. That's why it's a specially recommended for painting bedrooms, living rooms, kid rooms, kindergartens, hospitals and surgeries.  

The newest patent-pending solution „Cross-Linking Resin Technology” delivers increased durability of the dry paint film, significant extends the life of the coating and improves the hiding power properties.  

Below you can see how does the new technology work!

In conventional latex paint, after application, during drying process called coalescence, the water evaporates and the particles "melt" together as a polymer strands intermingle. Finally the coat is created in the form of matrix.

In Ultra Spec 500 with „Cross-Linking Resin" technology, the individual polymer strands chemically link together, forming a film that is tough, yet flexible. In effect we can observe the additional "bridges" like elements. 

Features: ULTRA SPEC® 500 INTERIOR EGGSHELL FINISH N538 creates eggshell finish, highly resistant to washing with water (after min. 14 days). The product characterizes 0 VOC content, no odor emission, typically for conventional paints consisting VOCs, excellent hiding power, high durability and color retention, quick drying time and very good technical as well as application parameters.

Mentioned above features cause that the product is recommended not only for painting residential objects but also public health care objects, schools, kindergartens and food care objects. Meets the LEED® v4 Credit requirements.
