Do you have any suggestions for getting my can of paint open and storing it for future use?

Over the years, one of the most useful tips we give to our customers is how to properly open a paint can, so it be sealed correctly.

In the video below, we show you how to properly open and close a paint can from KBS Coatings. Because most of our paint is shipped at some point, there is a chance that the paint in the can might get between the can and the lid which can make getting the lid off more difficult than it might be with an ordinary latex paint. Latex paints do not provide nearly the adhesion that is provided with paints from KBS Coatings so that is why opening our paint cans is an essential critical first step.

In the video, we also show you how to use KBS Paint Saver. KBS Paint Saver is a proven paint preserver that allows user-friendly long-term storing of leftover paints in the original can. KBS Paint Saver keeps paints, coatings, and clear coats from skinning over in the can saving you money by allowing you to use the entire can of paint. KBS Paint Saver is environmentally safe, allows for storage of paints in their original cans, and is extremely easy to use.

At KBS Coatings, we want you to be able to make the most of your investment which is why we show you how to open and close the paint can and how to use KBS Paint Saver to preserve the paint in the can.

When do I do the Cavity Coater? After prepping and coating the outside of the frame with RustSeal or before?

It is best to prep and coat the outside of the frame first allowing the RustSeal to fully cure at least 24 hours before applying the Cavity Coater to the inside of the frame. Doing it this way allows you to easily wipe off with mineral spirits the Cavity Coater if some of the Cavity Coater comes out of the holes of the frame.

If any of your paints or your prep products freeze, are they still ok?

Yes. Our products will work perfectly fine if they freeze if you let our products get back to room temperature before using.

For the prep products, shake the bottles well before using.

For our paint products, stir really well before using.

Why is it so important to paint your products in thin coats? I've painted quite a bit and a lot of paints I've use don't require this. What is different about your paints?

Paints that contain a high solids percentage and are moisture cured urethanes (like most of our coatings) require thin, covering coats to prevent the coat you are painting from skinning over trapping the escaping solvents below the skin which looks like micro bubbles on the surface. Most traditional paints are a very high solvents (low solids) content and that is why you can paint those in thicker coats because most of the coat is solvent that will evaporate away.
