Car-Rep® spray paints can be applied on almost all unpainted surfaces and painted surfaces which are more than one month old. The only exceptions are oiled or waxed surfaces. However, we recommend always to test the compatibiltiy first by painting a small test patch. It is very rare that previously painted surfaces react with Car-Rep® paints.
With Car-Rep® paints you can paint metal, wood, concrete and even plastics.
Pictograms on the label show clearly the main featues and instructions of use of the product. The pictograms display even if the products is for indoor and/or outdoor use and on which materials it can be applied on.
Cleaning and sanding
It is important thet the surface is clean. Sanding of the surface gives better adhesion for the paint. We recommend priming with the closest primer color to the actual surface color. Plastics should always be primed with Car-Rep® plastics primer.
How much paint do I need?
