Latex, Interior, (MPI Gloss Level 3)
|A white, or colored, water based latex-based paint with a finish between a high side sheen flat and a ‘satin-like’ finish or a low semi-gloss. (The gloss and sheen levels should be similar to an alkyd eggshell — MPI #51.) Used on primed/sealed interior plaster and gypsum board, and on primed wood and metals.
Gloss must be 10 to 25 units @ 60° and sheen 10 to 35 units @ 85°. Other evaluated characteristics include consistency/viscosity, dry time, fineness of grind, hiding power by contrast ratio method, reflectance, alkali resistance, flexibility, scrubbability, sealing properties, and cleaning properties.
