Worse Than Primer and Paint in One?


I couldn't sleep again for some reason so got up and plowed through a Menard's newspaper insert. I don't shop in box stores so do not often look but my eye caught an ad for Dutch Boy Maxbond and I got a hint of the next marketing gimmick.

Maxbond is advertised as an exclusive exterior no prep, no prime formula providing superior adhesion over dirty, chalky, previously painted or glossy surfaces.

What next? Shame on Sherwin Williams (Dutch Boy is their brand for the unwashed masses). I am sure it was the consumer wants to hear though. I guess the muddy look will be the new rage.

What's next a paint you can apply with your sprinklers so you do not even have to get on a ladder or use a brush?

The claims get more incredulous as time passes. This gives people the impression that they do not have to do anything, regarding cleaning, prep and priming.

Nothing beats the paint bomb. The trick is to put the can in the middle of the room for even coverage.

Self propelled electric paint roller. You hold it against the wall. It spins the paint on.
