Frequently Asked Questions

Our product being AEROSOL Can, can be couriered only via surface transport and might take a weeks time to reach.

A finely dispersed pigment, solvent, and resin in a propellant solution. Filling aerosol paints is more complicated than filling a can of brush-type paint. It requires special technique, skill, and experience to make formulations that, when sprayed from an aerosol can, will give a paint job that is better than you get with conventional paint and brush. The dictionary describes an aerosol as a ”suspension of fine solid or liquid particles in air or gas.” However, the term ”aerosol” is now applied to all push-button products propelled by gas from the container.

Com-Paint spray cans do not contain chlorofluorocarbons and other chemical which are harmful to the ozone layer. It meets strict quality standards – – – – Do yourself and the earth a favor by using these high-quality products.

Com- Paint is packaged using every precaution to eliminate the possibility of an aerosol can bursting. Com- Paint Cans are filled under strict Consumer Product Safety, and tested with water solution temperatures of 55°C and pressure to 190 lbs psi. Aerosol cans exposed to higher temperatures can burst. Never store aerosol cans near sparks, heat, open flames or store above 50°C. Avoid prolonged exposure to sunlight or heat from radiators, stoves, hot water and other heat sources that may cause bursting. If punctured accidentally, the contents may be blown out of the can very quickly. Do not puncture, incinerate, burn or place a pressurized aerosol container in a garbage compactor..

When using an aerosol can remember they’re extremely flammable. You should use extreme caution and use them with adequate ventilation. Avoid breathing vapors or spray mist, open windows and doors, or use other means to ensure fresh air entry during application and drying. Keep area ventilated during use and until all vapors are gone. Avoid contact with eyes, skin or clothing.

Do not use an aerosol can near sparks, heat or open flames. Vapors do accumulate easily and may ignite explosively. Keep area ventilated during use and until all vapors are gone. Do not smoke, and remember to extinguish all flames, pilot lights, heaters and other ignition sources prior to use.

Read the directions on each aerosol can. At Aeroaids we tailor the instructions for each specific product application to ensure optimum results. Generally, you should prepare the surface by removing dirt, grease, rust, wax, moisture and loose paint. Make sure the surface is clean, dry and free of contaminants.

No. Read the directions carefully and practice spraying on an old carton or box. Release the trigger at the end of each stroke, so as not to pile too much paint at the ends. Spray lightly. Two thin coats are better than one heavy coat. Hold the container 12” to 16” from the surface. Spray painting is fun, and a little practice will enable any amateur to obtain professional results.

No. The valve on top of the can automatically seals itself. Invert can and press the valve for two or three seconds allowing a jet of propellant to clear the orifice.

When aerosol paints were first introduced, this was the number one complaint. However, technical improvements in both product and valve have practically eliminated this problem. If the spray nozzle becomes clogged, rotate nozzle 1/4 turn and try spraying again. If the spray nozzle continues to be clogged, remove and clean the nozzle stem using a toothpick and/or by soaking in acetone or comparable solvent to remove dried paint. You may be able to interchange spray nozzles from other aerosol cans. DO NOT stick pins, wire or other objects into the hole on top of an aerosol can. Remember, after using an aerosol can it’s important to clear the valve to avoid having a clogged spray nozzle which affects future performance. We recommend that after each painting project, invert the aerosol can and press the nozzle until clear propellant is emitted, normally for 2-3 sec.
