A more environmentally friendly way to paint at Golden Installations Ltd.

Golden Installations Ltd. is excited to announce that they have purchased a new paint tinting machine which will allow them to offer Benjamin  Moores complete line of the new Gennex paints. This new environmentally friendly paint contains zero volatile organic compounds (VOC) and is virtually odourless.   Aura paint  is probably the most easily recognized name in the gennex line. Benjamin Moore states, “Aura is quite simply the finest paint we’ve ever made, offering the most advanced way to bring colour to life.”

According to Golden Installations staff member, Wendy Wilson, the new machine is completely computerized unlike the older style machine that they had been using was completely manual.

“We used to have to count the number of pumps to disperse the paint. With this one we key in what is needed, push a button and it does it all by itself. This is beneficial for the customers because it is far more accurate since it is computer controlled.” Wilson said. “We can control it down to the smallest amount of a drop. It would have been difficult to have that kind of accuracy with the older model.”

She also said the new paints will be easier for customers to use.

“You will have better spreadability, colour retention, it will last longer and also be more scrubbable,” Wilson said.

There will be 240 new colours which people will be able to purchase at the store.

“The colours will be much richer and intense,” she said. “This is the next step up. We are finding all of the oil based paints are literally becoming phased out. Very soon you will not be able to buy oil based paints.”

Customers are welcomed to come in and learn more about the colours offered and the new technology from staff members at the store.

“We’re going to be holding seminars at the store in the spring for customers,” Wilson said.
