Not All Grays Are Neutral!

Munsell Neutral Gray Paint

A "neutral" gray is not simply a black-white mix, but an equal mixture of all the visible spectrum(r-o-y-g-b-i-v) colors. A spectrophotometric measurement of such a gray will show it to contain approximately equal amounts of those spectrum colors. Non-neutral grays, however, have unequal amounts of the spectrum colors, causing a cold or warm color shift under different lighting conditions.

A neutral paint minimizes "color pollution" of viewing areas caused by reflections from chromatic surfaces. When D50 or D65 standard illumination is reflected from colored walls, etc., its color quality changes so it is no longer "standard". The application of a neutral gray to chromatic surfaces will eliminate such color pollution by providing spectrally neutral surfaces around the viewing area.

FAQ

Questions on GTI Munsell Neutral Gray N7/N8 Paint - PINT
Does your "Standard Gray Neutral 8" paint contain any black pigment? If so, are there any other colors of pigment also present.
Hi Mike, The formulation is proprietary to achieve a tight match to the munsell reference. I honestly don't know what components are used to create this match.

What is a good argument when a client insists that bright white is best for color viewing? (Partly because of the reflectance value being so high.)
Hi Karen, Mixing white paint to have a flat spectral response (across the visible rainbow) is extremely difficult to achieve. Invariably white walls will have some colored bias which reflect onto the printed sheets. A neutral gray is easier to mix to achieve flat spectral response and will result in limited or no color cast since gray does will not reflect as much light as a white wall. Thanks for the question.

Can it be used on wood doors?
Hi Marcio, You can definitely use the GTI Munsell Neutral Gray Paint on wood. You should first apply a latex primer appropriate for wood surfaces before using the GTI gray paint. The primer will seal the wood and create a white base so there isn't any color bias that could affect the gray paint color. A latex primer also helps reduce the number of coats of gray paint needed too. Thanks for your question. - Admin

Yes, the GTI paint is vinyl latex paint and can be applied to metal. Make sure you get a primer designed for metal.
