What is the difference in the Spray Max 1K and 2K paint?
Which Spray Max paint aerosol is best for my project?
What's the difference between the Spray Max 1K Base coat or the Spray Max 2K Single Stage Paint?
Spray Max 1K (containing one product) is a base coat paint. It has more coverage than the 2K aerosol and does not have to be activated, so it can be used again and again for touch ups until the can is empty. It must be clear coated. Using a clear coat gives the added benefit of protection against the sun's UV rays, which causes fading. The 1K basecoat/clear coat system has the added benefit of less orange peel. Also, in the event scratches or repairs need to be made, the clear coat can be color sanded. We suggest using the Spray Max 2K Glamour Clear Coat. This gives a high gloss finish, durable finish.
Spray Max 2K Single Stage ( two products in one can, the paint and activator/hardener). is an activated paint. Once the can is activated it must be used within 12 hours. The Spray Max 2K actually has three items in one aerosol: paint, clear coat, and activator, due to this, there is less room for paint, thus you will not get as much coverage using the Spray Max 2K aerosol as you do the Spray Max 1K base coat. There is also a greater chance for orange-peel with 2K paint. One of the advantages to the 2K aerosol is no separate clear coat is needed, saving you that extra step.
Which paint is best for you? The base coat/ clear coat method will give you a better, more durable finish. However, each project is different, consider carefully the needs and use of your project, consider the characteristics of the 1K and 2K paint and then make your choice.
