What is the difference between 1K and 2K aerosol canisters?

A 2K aerosol spray canister contains the same contents as a 1K can but with the additional benefit of a special hardening agent built into a separated compartment within the same canister. We supply the entire range of RAL spray paint , Pantone spray paint, NCS spray paint, and British Standard paints colours in 2K (also known as 2 pack) spray paint canisters.

This hardener is manually released into the can via a simple valve and gives you 8 hours of use. The hardener provides the Paint/Lacquer/Primer additional protection once applied to a surface area. Typical examples for this use are car body parts, machinery, doorways and other heavy traffic areas.

The 2K can is a superior product and is strongly recommended when applying the Paint/Lacquer/Primer is intended for an exterior surface. 2K provides durable protection against environmental exposures and will provide a harder wearing, smoother finish with improved resistance to scuffs/scratches and the elements.
