Painting tips

How do I properly utilize a spray can


The surface to be painted should be thoroughly prepared before the spray can is used. Please pay attention to the respective directions for the different paint preparation products.

Work environment

The ideal work temperature is between 20 °C and 25 °C. Avoid direct sunlight. Do not smoke. Only paint outside or in well ventilated areas.

Shake can well

For the optimal distribution of the paint pigments, shake the can at least 2 minutes while it is clearly audible that the mixing balls hit the walls of the can.

Spray distance

Hold the can as vertical as possible and ensure a distance of approx. 25 cm, i.e. 3 handsizes. Spray on a metal test sheet first and check the colour result.

Spray process

Start with the spraying outside the painting surface and apply several thin layers evenly in a "cross coat". Cross coat describes the spraying of a horizontal and a subsequent vertical layer.
Between the cross coats, wait for 2 to 3 minutes.

Cleaning the valve

After use, turn the can upside down and spray until valve is empty to prevent clogging.
