Questions to ask yourself when choosing a spray can

  1. What should you spray on? Are you going to paint on wood, maybe paint something in metal, paint graffiti on concrete, spray on plastic? Whatever project you have going on, we can help you find the right spray can.

     

  2. Should you spray indoors or outdoors? If you are going to spray indoors, you can e.g. a water-based spray is preferred. Protective gear can be a good idea.

     

  3. How large an area should you spray? As a rule, it is usually said that a spray can covers 1-1.5 square meters, but it also depends on which spray can you use and above all which color you paint with and on. See our guide for spray cans and learn more.
     
  4. How high pressure do you want in the spray can? Low pressure is best for slightly smaller canvas painting, high pressure is usually used for e.g. graffiti or furniture painting.

     

  5. Where do you throw spray cans? Spray cans that are used up are simply punctured against a blunt object to empty out the last gas (note that the paint is completely used up to prevent paint splashes on clothes) and then recycled as metal packaging at a recycling station.

     

  6. Can spray paint be removed? Absolutely, there are several ways to remove spray paint. To begin with, we have a spray can for that! It is also good to sand off the paint, some spray cans are water based and can be easily washed off. But it can be good to keep in mind that spray paint is usually permanent, so if it needs to be removed, it often means a lot of work!
     
  7. How big is your budget? We at Highlights have the absolute best spray cans at the absolute best price, there is no doubt for anyone who does a little research. We have spray cans in several price ranges and all have different uses. Check out our guide so you don't buy unnecessarily expensive spray cans for your project.

 

How does a spray can work?

A spray can usually consists of a liquid (e.g. paint), liquid propellant, one or more mixing balls and a tube with a vault on it in an aluminum can and at the top of the spray can is a replaceable nozzle. Inside the spray can, the paint is pushed down to the bottom of the liquid propellant, you mix the paint with the mixing ball when you shake the spray can. When you press down on the nozzle, the valve opens and the pressure is relieved, up out of the tube at the bottom of the can, up into the valve and out through the nozzle comes paint together with the liquid propellant, which is then gasified.

How do I best protect myself when I spray?

We always recommend using a gas mask when using a spray can, if you are spraying indoors gas mask is a must have. There are no heavy metals in our spray cans, but regardless of that, you don't want to inhale gases and paint dust unnecessarily as it e.g. may cause dizziness. We have a wide range of different types of gas masks and dust protection. Another good protection is protection gloves, here we also have a nice selection in different price ranges and types. If you want to protect your clothes from paint splashes, we have protective overalls developed for spray painting.

 

The spray cans history

The concept for the spray can already came at the end of the 18th century in connection with the soda siphon coming to France when the Frenchman with the alias "Perpigna" manufactured a siphon with a vault like a spray can. However, it wasn't until 1927 that the idea really took off and began to take the form of what we today call a spray can, when the Norwegian Erik Rotheim patented a spray can with a vault that contained liquid together with propellant gas. During the Second World War, the spray can was further developed when the Americans Lyle Goodhue and William Sullivan developed a can that contained liquid gas (fluorocarbon). Then we get to the spray paint! In 1947, Edward (Ed) Seymour invented the spray paint when he wanted to find an efficient way to get elements aluminum coated. His wife Bonnie then got the idea that it would be practical to use a spray can. All said and done, Edward then started the company Seymour of Sycamore, Inc. in Chicago and was the first company to manufacture and sell spray paint. Since then, a lot has happened, not least from an environmental point of view, as the propellant has been replaced time and time again to reduce the impact on the ozone layer. The areas of use throughout the ages have been and are everything from hairspray, car paint, deodorant and spray paint.
