Aim and Shoot
Eastwood Company’s 2K Aero-Spray offers the benefits of a professional paint gun, but in an easy-to-use can. Traditional aerosol paints contain air-dry 1K paints, but Aero-Spray features 2K paints, which are the products used today in auto refinishing. The unique can design features a catalyst-containing internal bladder, which is surrounded by the non-activated paint. Push a button on the bottom of the can to pierce the internal bladder and release the catalyst into the paint. (Once activated, the can has a 48-hour shelf life.) It’s currently available in Epoxy Primer, High-Gloss Clear, Ceramic Underhood Black, Ceramic Chassis Black Satin, and Ceramic Chassis Black Gloss. The price is $19.99 to $24.99.
