Old paint is collected and shipped to our processing plant, where it is inspected and sorted by quality, color and sheen, then mixed in large industrial tanks, and tested.
The paint is adjusted with additives and colorants, matched to our standard range of designer colors, which shade differences per batch are less than what is perceptible to the human eye: (0.8 delta). 
Finally, the paint is triple filtered to 150 mesh and packaged for sale,
with the same or better properties as new paint.

    Why Buy COLORTECHPaint?
  2. Recycling paint is the process of collecting unused paint and making it into a new coating. A better term rather than "recycling" is "reclaimed", as the paint was not actually used the first time. The paints are then sorted, filtered, blended and re-manufactured. The end result: NEW paint with premium performance at a fraction of the price.
    What Is Recycled Paint?
  3. COLORTECH paints are manufactured by recycling high quality brand-name paints such as: Benjamin Moore, Behr, Sherwin Williams, Glidden, Valspar, Pratt & Lambert, Pittsburg Paints and many others. COLORTECH paints meet or exceeds the performance specifications of national paint brands, at a fraction of the cost. It's simply GREAT paint for a GREAT price!

Know What You Buy | Various Recycled Paint Grades
Not all recycled paints are the same.  As with virgin paints, recycled paint qualities vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. The following are 4 grades of recycled paint:

Raw Feedstock: (unfiltered) 
This is the lowest grade of recycled paint that contains particles which will effect the finish of the paint. 

Export Grade: Often used by virgin paint manufacturers as a base

  • coarse filtered

Contractor Grade (good paint) 
  • fine filtered
  • color matched to 2 deltas of basic colors 
  • each 1,800 gallon batch uniquely numbered (ensures perfect match)

Premium Contractor Grade (best quality): The only grade COLORTECH sells
  • triple fine filtered to 150 mesh
  • color matched to 0.8 deltas (imperceptible to the human eye)
  • each 1,800 gallon batch uniquely numbered
  • each batch quality tested and rolled out on the wall
  • raw materials received are sorted and only mid to high quality paints go in the blend 
  • when blended compares to "good to great quality" virgin paint specifications (covers in one coat, does not spatter, leaves smooth finish)
  • low VOC (technically < 50 g/L) Colortech ranges from 15 - 35 g/L
