Finish "Notable" by Benjamin Moore1/24
We are making a Murphy bed and the Designer wants us to apply a finish product called Notable by Benjamin Moore which will create a Dry Erase surface. The room is for the owners Grand Children when the visit.
I have never used this product and I am wondering if anyone has and if it yellows over time. It comes in a clear finish and we will apply it over a tinted primer. I plan on using a solid color pigmented lacquer over the rest of the cabinetry. My concern is that after a few years, the cabinetry will not match.
Since they are spec'ing the murphy bed to have this specific coating, you probably should tell them to expect it to age different than the cabinet finish anyway.
Your fear is quite reasonable. Even the tinted primer can age differently than the lacquer topcoat.
Most pigmented lacquers also yellow with age, although recent ones seem to minimize this a lot.
If it were my contract, it would say in very clear writing that the "Notable" finish required for the Murphy bed can, and will, age differently than the cabinet finish.
Most likely, the difference will be minor.
