The proper temperature….. For best results, the spray paint needs to be at 20-25°C.
Never use the spray paint at temperatures below 15°C.
If the spray can is cold, it must be brought to the correct temperature by keeping it at room temperature (20-25°C) for several minutes.
Never place the spray can in direct contact with an open flame or on surfaces that are heated or incandescent.
Ensure that there is proper ventilation Since applying paint out of doors does not present any particular health risk, it is advisable to do so.
If working indoors is necessary, create ventilation by opening doors and windows.
Painting neatly….. To prevent inadvertent spotting of surrounding areas, mask the surfaces that do not need painting by using wide masking tape and newspapers.
Some professional advice: if you need to paint small objects indoors, make a cardboard box that is closed on 4 sides, place the object in the box and spray. By doing so, the surrounding surfaces will not be sprayed.
Mixing the paint….. Before spraying, shake the can well for two minutes. To ensure that the paint is always well mixed, it is advisable to shake the can every now and then between sprays.
Testing the paint beforehand….. It is best to test spray a small area before applying the spray paint completely. Apply the paint to a small portion of the surface to be painted to ensure that the surface and the paint are compatible. This should be done especially if the surface is plastic. Before continuing, decide if the results are satisfactory.
Take your time….. Don’t rush through the job. Apply 4 light coats rather than two heavy ones. Working at the right pace avoids the formation of unsightly drip marks.
To obtain even coverage….. To obtain even and complete coverage, it is necessary to apply the paint lightly in two directions, horizontally and vertically, waiting 5 minutes between each direction. Hold the can 25-30 cm from the surface to be covered.
Removing spray paint….. The spray paint can be removed with acetone and/or nitro solvent. If the paint to be removed is very old, it is advisable to use a stripper.
The surface sprayed is not perfectly shiny... Cause:
The application has been sprayed at a low temperature in a humid environment.
Dry the surface using a blow dryer or move to a dry area to get rid of the humidity from the surface. If this is not enough, remove the paint with some solvent and repeat the process in a warmer environment with less humidity.
The surface sprayed looks opaque and wrinkly... Cause:
The spray can was too far away from the surface during the application.
Using fine sandpaper, remove the paint and repeat the application at the suggested distance of 25 – 30cm.
The paint doesn’t cover the surface properly... Cause:
The spray can has been used at a temperature lower than 15 °C. At this temperature, the gas in the can struggles to expand and the components do not mix together properly, therefore resulting in the paint not covering the surface properly.
Warm up the spray can by rubbing it with both hands, and shake it as much as possible.
The surface painted doesn’t bond with the paint Cause:
This problem is caused by the presence of grease, dirt, oil or silicone on the surface.
Take the paint off with the appropriate solvents specific for this type of operation, clean the surface thoroughly and gently apply fine sandpaper to the surface and repeat the application of paint again.
The surface has a bumpy look to it... Cause:
This occurs when too many layers of paint have been applied to the surface or the surface was too warm.
If the bumpiness is minor, use fine sandpaper to smooth it out. However, if it is very noticeable, use coarser sandpaper to clean the surface. Repeat the application, ensuring that the surface is not too warm, spraying a small amount and applying the paint with a cross pattern.
The painted surface is uneven with drips.... Cause
The spray paint was applied on too many layers and in a cold environment (below 15°)
Let the surface dry properly, in particular where the problems have occurred. Remove the spray paint with coarse sandpaper. Repeat the application, ensuring that the surface is not too cold, spraying small layers in a cross pattern.
The painted surface looks raised... Cause
This problem is caused by incompatibility between the already painted surface and the new layer of paint on top, or not enough time was allowed for the paint to dry.
Strip the paint with solvent and reapply the spray paint ensuring that there is only one type of paint on the surface; also ensure that the drying time is adequate.
