Can I mix different product series?

For the best results, we always recommend using the same type of paint from top to bottom. For instance, acrylic paint can NOT be painted on alkyd paint. However, alkyd paint can be painted on acrylic paint after the acrylic paint has dried for approximately 60 minutes. Acrylic paint can be painted on waterborne Zero spray paint, either wet or when the Zero layer is fully dry. Alkyd paint can NOT be painted on Zero.

How should I store spray paint at home

Storing temperature should be at least +10 °C. Under no circumstances may it exceed +50 °C. The relative humidity should stay below 40% so that the can will not form rust on the outside.

Can I paint outdoors in the fall or in the spring?

When painting, the temperature should be at least +15 °C, with the optimum being +20 °C. Sometimes smaller items can be painted at cooler temperatures by ensuring that the paint and the item are warm (taken out from a warm indoor space) and that the air and the item are dry. After painting, the item should be taken to an indoor space to dry, with temperature at a minimum of +15 °C.

Do Maston lacquers have UV protection?

One characteristic of acrylic lacquers (AutoACRYL, ONE, ACRYL) is their resistance and protection from UV light.

How can I remove spray adhesive or other adhesive from a car, for instance?

Maston adhesive spray, as most adhesives, is easiest to remove with xylene. However, please test it first on a non-visible area to make sure that xylene will not damage the actual area to be cleaned.

Hammer paint: How should I make Hammer thinner?

Canned Hammer paints, smooth and hammered, can be made thinner with thinners available in the Hammer product series.

Can Zero spray paint be sprayed directly on plastic and styrofoam?

Zero can be painted directly on plastic and styrofoam surfaces. You do not necessarily need a plastic primer because the paint sticks on the surface regardless. With Zero, you can also paint directly on styrofoam.

Can Zero be used to paint a door in a bathroom?

No. A surface painted with Zero is not resistant to high humidity.

Which paint is good for chrome surfaces?

In order for paint to stick on a chrome surface, the surface must be sanded down to matt. After this, you can use acrylic primers and top coats.
