Awesome for harder plastics!!!
I am a huge fan of this spray paint! I love that the nozzle sprays in a fan pattern, makes it super easy to overlap and blend. I have used it many times at home, the latest was on a child's battery operated vehicle. Between the paint and new decals it looked like a brand new vehicle from the store, minus the $350 price tag a new one would cost. I did make sure to wipe everything down (I used rubbing alcohol, which is great for surface contaminates) followed by a tack cloth... I don't care if it says "no prep needed", prep is ALWAYS an important step. I will say I did try it without scuff sanding (out of curiosity) and surprisingly the paint had great adherence to the substrate. Thank you Krylon for such a wonderful product for at home use! Let me add the surfaces I use it on are harder plastics, I cannot say how well they would work on softer plastics. They do state it's for "some plastics" not all. Any doubts about using this product on a substrate you want to coat, my advice would be to call the manufacturer and ask their paint rep before buying to make sure it's compatible.

Appropiate for Dump Sink
Would you recommend this product to paint a plastic/fiberglass (?) dump sink in laundry room?

Wanted to freshen up some resin planters. Took outside & set up to paint. Mostly made a cloud of paint with very little coverage of item. Continued trying different techniques. Nothng really worked. Ended up with very uneven coverage. Will probably try something I can brush on.

Awesome paint for plastics!!!
I used this paint to bring back some life to my fender flares, mud guards, and other bits of plastic on my F450 truck. As with anything prep is very important. Even though it states "no prep" just to be safe I prepped everything anyways and the results were great.
I removed all the parts from the vehicle and cleaned them with an ammonia based cleaner (windex)
I then took a fine grit sanding sponge and quickly sanded all the parts.
I then tack ragged the parts off to remove any fine dust. If you have an air compressor you can use that as well to blow the dust off first and then tag rag off any remaining dust.
Finally I sprayed the parts with 3-4 thin coats of the krylon fusion paint. I used satin black.
I did this about 2 years ago and the color today looks exactly the same as it did 2 years ago. This was through 2 hot summers and 2 freezing cold winters.
If you want more protection I guess you could add a clear coat over top but I chose not to.

Stays sticky on flexible PVC
I don't recommend this paint on soft plastics. Painted my PVC door card and paint was still tacky days after painting.
For my dashboard, which was hard plastic - excellent.

Not true color
The color was very different than can top. Although, it was called "pumpkin" the cap showed a brighter orange. Also, nozzle plugged up within the first few minutes of spraying. I never have had that happen with spray paint. It did cover nicely.

"needs no sanding or primer" is, at least for motorcycle plastic body parts, both misleading and incorrect.
I purchased 3 cans of Krylon Fusion Black Matte to convert my blue & black dual-sport motorcycle to completely black. I wiped down all of the plastic body panels with lacquer thinner to remove the gloss. I followed the directions on the can and applied 3 light coats of paint, waiting 1 hour in between each coat.
The trouble started after the first coat. Even though I inverted the can and cleared the nozzle after each coat of paint, the nozzle started to spit and splatter with subsequent coats. I had to hold the can further and further away from the plastic panels to get an even coat.
After the 3rd coat of paint I let the plastic panels dry for a week before re-installing them on my motorcycle.
Within a month the Krylon paint started flaking off. Some of the flaking occurred in "rub zones" (where my knees normally rests against a body panel). I wear bluejeans when riding, so this really shouldn't cause flaking. The paint also flaked off in places that are prone to a small degree of flexing.
My interpretation of this failure is that 1) the paint isn't designed to adhere to all plastics and 2) the paint doesn't stay flexible once it's cured.
I'm extremely disappointed in this paint. I've long been a fan of Krylon products, mostly because of the fine fan-shaped mist that their nozzles produce. After this experience, I'm not going to waste my time with Krylon any more.
When I repaint my bike again I will start by wet-sanding all of the panels (which Krylon claimed wasn't necessary), then apply a base coat of Plastic Primer (which Krylon also claims isn't necessary).
I'm going to use Rustoleum products, though. Although I like looking at a nice smooth painted surface, I don't want to have to re-do it every year.
