New spray paing question.

Postby FM-USA » Mon Oct 10, 2016 9:07 am



I seen on TV a spray paint named H20 and I didn't catch who made it.
Has anyone used this paint yet?
If so, your reviews.

On that quick look it looked kinda like this...

Know its new taste and be loyal, you'll know when to change that oil.
Taste testing as the miles flow, souring as that acid grows.
And don't flirt with dirt or darkened oil, all the faster your engine will spoil.

I've seen things like this in the past. One advert airing and never seen again.
Even stopped at a couple of my regular paint stores like Glidden and Sherwin Williams. None head of it.

It appears that Krylon used to make the H2O line, but it's not listed on their site anymore.
Here and here are reviews of the paint, but the latest one is from 2014.
It's never too late to have a happy childhood!

WELL DARN... there goes another proper latex option for repainting my Wing. :(
I had a feeling it was Krylon but it never showed up on searches, it's been discontinued for a while.
Another reason why I missed the search, I used the number 0 not the letter O. (woops, not thinking I guess)

This is not an endorsement, JUST info for members to know about H2O spray paint.
_______________________________________________
(copy/paste treehugger*com)
According to Krylon, the H2O spray paint releases 55 percent less smog-generating chemicals into the air than the average solvent-based spray paint, and VOC-emissions are reduced by 25 to 30 percent.
There are 25 color options and it's still quick-drying (it dries in 15 minutes, and is fully dry to touch in just one hour). A nice change is that clean-up requires soap and water rather than harsh industrial solvents.

The Eco-Sad Spray Paint News Yes, Krylon has reduced emissions with their H2O product, but (and this is a big but) 3/4 of the VOC emissions still exist, so we'd be hard-pressed to call this product "low-VOC" (as Krylon does on their website). And while it reduces more than half of smog-causing chemicals, it doesn't eliminate them. The spray paint is also stashed in an aerosol can, an ugly contributor of physical waste.

The Verdict
When it comes to paint, spray paint is pretty much as bad as it gets, so whenever possible, get out the rollers and pick up a can of low-VOC latex paint instead of taking the easier spray-able road.

Isn't there numbers and letters on the backside of that part? If not then look at the back of the fuel cover, hopefully your color sticker is still there.

Each year the Tupperware colors are slightly different.

For me, I just found out there are 2 different "Bison Browns" which is for the vinyls and covers.

OH... no I haven't painted my Wing yet. Still fixing the bumps and scuffs from being hit from behind 2 years ago (very low SS income).
Some have found car paints can be a very close match, BUT it's a hit/miss thing since Honda keeps their color formulas under wraps.

To an auto paint shop, take a part as a color match and they can get REAL close if not exact. Tho do use a part that sees little to no sunshine.
NEVER EVER go by their paint chips.
As the EPA keeps getting their GRUBBY NOSE in our buttsiness, price-wise everything will keep going up.
IF you have little DINKS to fill, you can use a touch-up pen from a car color that's real close, after a while you'll never notice it.
Multi layers is best, less chance of popping.

As a home/business painter as long as you paint the whole part it will be just fine. If there is any difference, it'll be sectioned off and unnoticeable. The most difficult of any metallic paint is matching the metal flake size. That's why silver is OH-SO hard to match, the flake size also changes the colors hue.

I've rattle can sprayed cars, vans and bikes, it's all in the prep and consistency. Vans were the hardest, fingers always fatigued too soon. One key is, once you start a spray speed DON'T change it even if its a little piece.

FM-USA Thanks for the reply, I found the paint for the wing except the bison brown, still looking for the honda paint
I know what your saying about the spray can fatigue, I was thinking about buying one of those spray trigger rigs
that attaches to the can.

Like I said, 2 different Bison Browns.
Vinyl paint in that color is going to be really difficult unless you can find a shop that can mix it.
