Spray Paint Mastery: Get the Job Done Safely and Skillfully with Tips and Top Products
Wurth makes using spray paint safe and easy. Prior to starting your spray paint project, read the safety tips provided on the label of every Wurth spray can, and take into consideration these five additional safety tips:
• Stay away from fire! Make sure to keep away from heat, sparks and open flame. Don’t smoke. Extinguish all flames, pilot lights and heaters. Turn off stoves, electric tools and appliances, and any other sources of ignition.
•Keep aerosol away from heat sources, too. Avoid prolonged exposure to sunlight or heat from radiators, stoves, hot water and other hot items that may cause bursting. Additionally, for best finish, avoid using spray paint directly in hot, humid weather.
•Leave the spray paint can whole. Do not puncture, incinerate or burn aerosol cans. Do not discard cans in a trash compactor. But do recycle them when empty.
•Ventilate. Vapors are harmful; avoid continuous breathing of spray mist by spraying outside whenever possible. When spraying inside, open windows and doors to ensure fresh air entry during application and drying. Wearing respiratory protection is also helpful – most hardware stores sell a variety of painting masks.
•Keep spray paint on your project, not on you. Avoid contact with your eyes and skin. Wear gloves or wash your hands after using.
How to prevent the spay can tip from clogging?
Prevent your Wurth spray paint tip from clogging by following these simple steps after each use:
•Turn spray can upside down
•Press spray nozzle for five seconds or until clear gas is discharged
These precautionary measures can greatly impact the quality of your spray paint after your first use while prolonging the usage of a single can of Wurth paint.
How to prevent spray paint air bubbles?
Applying Wurth spray paint in ideal weather conditions can help prevent air bubbles from forming on the surface of your project. We suggest applying Wurth spray paint when the temperature is between 70 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit and the relative humidity is below 85%.
Recommended Spray Paint Techniques
In addition to this, we suggest applying multiple thin coats by following these application tips:
• Begin and finish your spray paint pattern off the object
• Release spray button at the end of each pass
• Use an even side-to-side motion
• Overlap your spray paint pattern by about one-third
• Hold can in a vertical position
Removing Spray Paint Air Bubbles from Project Surface
If spray paint air bubbles are released onto your project’s surface, follow these steps:
•Allow spray paint to dry
•Lightly sand the affected surface
How to apply evenly?
•Shake your Wurth spray can vigorously for two minutes after the ball within the can begins to rattle
•Test your spray paint and painting technique on a piece of scrap material until you have achieved a satisfied result
•Hold your Wurth spray can 6 to 8 inches away from project surface
•Spray project using several thin coats of spray paint instead of one thick coat
•Begin and finish your spray pattern off the object, releasing the tip at the end of each pass
•Use an even side-to-side motion
•Overlap your spray pattern by about one-third with each pass
How long between coats?
• Wurth spray paint dry times vary by product, so be sure to check the can label for specific dry time instructions.
• Handling your project before the suggested dry time has elapsed puts a smooth, quality finish at risk.
