PlastiKote’s “Twist and Spray” can design was named the 2012 Product of the year in paint by Product of the Year USA, and PlastiKote says it will now be using the technology on its enamels and primers starting this fall.
PlastiKote says the design features the twist and lock cap that makes the spray painting experience easier, faster and cleaner than before.
“We are very excited to offer PlastiKote customers this revolutionary aerosol can design for our premium enamels and primers,” says Katie Whiting, product manager, aerosols for Valspar. “We have tested this product on a limited basis with some of our customers and the response we have received has been phenomenal.”
PlastiKote says its “Twist and Spray” aerosol design also won the AmeriStar Award in two categories from the Institution of Packaging Professionals this year. Among the features of the new PlastiKote aerosol can is the large finger pad that requires 33 percent less finger pressure to use than other spray paint cans, the company says. The patented spray top also is said to shield the finger from paint and features a twist and lock design, so there is no separate top to remove or replace after use.
