Our recycled paint is made by collecting, sorting and processing consumer waste paint (partial containers of left-over paint). We carefully sort the paint by style such as Alkyd (solvent based), Latex (water-based) and Stain. After sorting the paint is quality controlled and the waste paint disposed of. The paint which meets our standards is separated by colour then those colours are either shipped or processed further including filtration and colour matching and packaged into quarts, gallons, 5 gallon pails or 1000 liter totes.
Good Paint – Low Cost
Whether you have been purchasing recycled paint for years or you think you want to start building a market – you have likely recognized that recycled paint means good value. You simply can’t manufacture paint for the same price that we can sell it. As shipping, labour, and raw material cost increase, recycled paint remains an almost unbelievable value. Blue Moose Recycled Paint is not cheap paint. Cheap paint will not “cover” so multiple coats quickly make it expensive. Coverage is a function of expensive components like Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) and cheap paint formulations substitute TiO2 for much cheaper extenders, clay, and thickeners.
Is Recycled Paint Good Paint?
Yes, recycled paint is good paint. It’s good paint for the simple reason that its made from good paint. Our recycled paint is made from paint collected from Ontario (Canada) Municipalities and because the average can of paint purchased in Ontario sells for about $35 it makes sense that our recycled paint has the same quality characteristics as a $35 can.
Blue Moose Recycled paint should not be compared to cheap virgin paint. We have all used inexpensive paint and in general you get what you pay for because it simply costs more in raw materials to produce a good paint which covers and clings to a roller.
