Using instructions

The most DUPLI-COLOR spray paints have a so-called no-spray ring or a tamper-proof cap. This is to avoid unauthorized use. Please see the corresponding advises on the cap or on the label.
Before use, carefully read and observe the warning texts on the label!


  • The surface has to be clean, absolutely free from fat and dry.
  • Mask off areas not to be painted! In spite of low formation of spray mist, we recommend to protect the surrounding area.
  • Let dry previous paint coats for at least 24 hrs.
  • Shake the can for approx. 3 minutes.
  • Test spray at an invisible spot.
  • The optimal spray distance is approx. 25 cm.
  • Spray several thin coats in 2 minute intervals.
  • The water-based spray should not be applied during temperatures lower than 15°C, as this might delay drying time.
  • Depending on weather conditions: dust-dry after approx. 15 min., dry to touch after approx. 2 hrs., fully dried after 24 hrs., in case of good adherence resistant to wiping and weatherproof after 5 days.

Tips for spray painting

Protect the object and the surrounding area from spray mist.
Temperature should range between +10°C and +25°C, max. air humidity 60 %.

Store in a dry place. Protect from direct sunlight and other sources of heat. Use only during dry weather, in places protected from the wind, and in well-ventilated rooms. Follow the warning texts on the labels!
