I am spraying from an aerosol can over this weekend.
In the UK the outside air tempertature is around 12 degrees celcius or 55 degrees farenheit. I can only spray outside really.
I would appreciate thoughts on whether or not such a temperature is OK for spraying outside. Secondly, in advance of the spraying should I keep the item that is being sprayed cool, at outside ambient temperature or warm. Please also advise on the same for the actual aerosol can.
I have attached a photo of the instructions on the aerosol can which may assist in getting some answers
I have had good results 0utside on a nice warm dry day with no wind..If it's windy dust and bits of twigs and leaves will blow up into the air .
If you heat up the component too much then the paint will instantly dry as it hits the item being sprayed and you'll get a textured finish like leather...Sometimes this is desirable as an effect..but usually not. From my experience warm enough to ensure atmospheric humidity does not condense onto the surface is enough.
Humidity will have an effect on the paint too as saturated air will give up it's moisture to the cold paint droplets..
I wouldn't paint outside today...I'd be looking for a mate with a nice workshop and the heating on : ) An ambient air temp of 20 -32 deg C is what I can glean from googling
and I would never expose the tin to heat as it's a pressurised container..blah blah
But then I'm not a paint specialist so I'm sure somebody more knowledgeable will chime in : )
I buy my aerosol paint and touch up from Bike Colours....He's a well established ebay seller. I would google ring him up. Very helpful bloke and I'm sure he'd be only too pleased to help. The added advantage is he is an expert in his field..
