The recyclable spray can's new EZ Touch 360°® Dial Spray Tip enables more comfortable spray painting with increased coverage per pass, reduced overspray, less chance of runs or drips and greater accuracy due to a dial that rotates a full 360°. Using the dial, painters can adjust the direction of the fan-spray pattern with the touch of a finger.
When using Krylon Fusion for Plastic, work in a well-ventilated area. Use newspapers or drop cloths to cover surrounding surfaces. For best adhesion on new or unweathered plastic surfaces, wipe the surface with standard paint thinner. For aged or weathered surfaces, wipe the surface with an ammonia-based cleaner.
Hold the can eight inches from surface applying thin, multiple coats. Spray in a sweeping motion, keeping an even distance from surface. Wait one minute between coats.
