White dusty spots on dark blue wall!!!!!!!!!


I think we need one of you unfortunate "victims" to reach out to the BM tech department for some clarification, as it seems they are the common demoninator here. I've ony seen this one time in my life but didn't have to solve the problem or deal with it. Keep us posted.

BTW- this is a very old thread- don't expect a direct answer from the OP.
But if you read the thread it might give you your answer.

1. Clean walls with TSP.
2. Repainted using first an oil based primer
3. Painted with new color
BTW I used Sherwin Williams this time no more Benjamin Moore.
was told it is most likely due to the paint not curing properly. Either too hot or too cold .
It worked for me and I had been having this problem for years just painting over did not work this has been over 6 months and not reoccurring.

Hope this helps good luck

I have the same issue but, I was told by the paint salesman that is was a defect in the paint for the dark blue color and a few more other colors..Had to do with the breakdown of pigment

It has nothing to do with mold..it is a defect not a primer issue

If this is the case, and I don't doubt it is, the problem is the initial quality of the paint and/or pigment not any defect per se. Try switching to a true quality brand from a real paint store.

It is the BM paint......Since then they have upgraded/improved the Ultra line as well as the lower levels except the contractor grade according to the BM salesman..It did have a pigment issue in certain color combinations (mixes) ...Whether you choose to believe his words is totally up to you..He retired from the business after thirty years so, I think I would rather go with him than "klacters" opinion. The time period the salesman spoke of was exactly the time I had painted those two rooms....I know now I would not have a problem buying and using BM paint. So, klacters everyone has a different opinion including the professionals.....

Well you are correct, they did have some colorant issues. I was working for them. But I forgot in the last couple of years that the op said he used Ben Moore. Pease excuse my forgetfulness.

Oh, and I have a year on him if he was in the business thirty years.
