Many of the bold, deep, vivid and transparent hues in the Sherwin-Williams palette reach their true color – and in fewer coats – when applied over a gray-tinted basecoat.

Accurate Color Development

Primer tinted to the right shade of gray creates the ideal balance of light absorption and light reflection. Sherwin-Williams color samples are conveniently coded to tell you which shade of gray you might need to achieve:

  • Maximum topcoat coverage and hide
  • More uniform color, less streaking
  • Better touch-up
