Tinting Strength

Tinting strength refers to how much a color is altered with the addition of another color. Tinting strength is influenced by the quality and amount of the pigment used in the paint and how fine the pigment has been ground.

The higher the tinting strength of a color, the more resistant it will be to a change in color with the addition of another color. Paints with finely ground and high-quality pigment have a high tinting strength.
