. Plutonium® Paint is a modified automotive acrylic lacquer, not water or oil based.
. Because Plutonium® has such a high pigment load, shake the can until the mixing ball rolls freely and then shake again for another minute to obtain a smooth spray finish.
One can of Plutonium® Paint will comfortably cover 20+ sq. feet, depending on the color.
Best results are at 65 to 72°F (18 – 22°C)
It has been tested to perform up to 400°F (204°C).
. For best results, spray distance should be between 6”-9”. In higher humidity it is best to adjust spray distance to 3″-4″.
Paint should be applied 5″-9″ from surface. Humidity will accelerate drying time, so as humidity increases, the distance from the target surface MUST BE REDUCED. You can apply Plutonium® Paint 1″-2″ from target surface if necessary. If paint is applied more than 3″-5″ from surface, it may dry in the air and cause a “dusty” finish.
Humidity will accelerate dry time. As humidity increases the distance from the target surface must be reduced. Our paint can be applied 1″-2″ from surface.
For best results, all surfaces should be well cleaned and loose paint or material removed. Most raw wood surfaces should be primed with a filler primer for a smooth finish. Smooth, shiny, or slick surfaces such as plastics, laminate counter tops, metals, etc. or surfaces that have been powder coated or clear coated should be prepared by using a fine wet/dry sandpaper or steel wool, followed by applying an etching primer.
. For best results, we recommend using a primer on all surfaces.
Any surface requiring the highest level of water resistance, UV protection and/or a Gloss Finish. Any brand that is an acrylic or enamel based clear coat will work.
. Yes. We currently offer a Clear Coat Gloss.
. Yes. Plutonium® Paint will not crystallize when multiple brands are used together.
With a 70% pigment load and 30% propellant as well as a High Volume Low Pressure delivery system, more paint is hitting the target surface reducing the amount of overspray. Also, our cans are made from tin-free steel, coated on both sides with PET (a polyester polymer). The polymer coating eliminates the need for solvent-based interior lining, thereby significantly reducing any carbon emissions. The finished cans have no welded side seems; this does away with the need for copper and water during manufacturing.
Yes. Our products are NOT tested on animals and there are no animal derived ingredients in the paint.
We only guarantee the results stated when using Plutonium® spray nozzle (Pro Caps). Other brands should work as long as they are male.
Place the used caps in a container of solvent, such as paint thinner or acetone and agitate gently, then rinse with hot water. Store the caps separately from the paint cans. This will extend the shelf life of the paint by helping to keep the cans air tight.
. They are specialty paints that allow the base color to show through the translucent color. They are mostly used for shading or blending colors.
. Yes. You can use Plutonium® on most metal surfaces. Please note: Plutonium® colors are custom and will not match existing automotive colors. If there is a clear coat on the vehicle, we recommend that it be sanded off and a primer applied. Most paints, including Plutonium® will not adhere well to a clear coat. Once you have sprayed your color coat, an automotive grade clear coat should be applied to provide a durable finish.
Yes. Our paint is water resistant. It is not waterproof. For additional water resistance apply a protective clear coat. We offer a clear coat gloss. For matte finish maintenance you can use any brand that is acrylic or enamel based.
Our paint is safe for both pets and babies to touch. It is not safe for ingestion.
Yes. We will be adding Deep Space Gloss (black) and Polar Gloss (white) in 2017.
