PlastiKote to use new twist-and-lock cap on its paints

Company says award-winning Twist and Spray aerosol design will soon available on PlastiKote Premium Paints.

An award-winning “Twist and Spray” technology will now be available on PlastiKote premium enamels and primers, starting this fall. This revolutionary design features the twist and lock cap that makes the spray painting experience easier, faster and cleaner than ever before.

“We are very excited to offer PlastiKote customers this revolutionary aerosol can design for our premium enamels and primers,” said 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.”

Earlier this year, the new spray can design was awarded the “2012 Product of the Year” in the paint category by Product of the Year USA, the world’s largest consumer-voted program that recognizes innovation in consumer packaged goods.  In addition, the “Twist and Spray” aerosol design won the AmeriStar Award in two categories from the Institution of Packaging Professionals.

Among the innovative features of the new PlastiKote aerosol can is the large, comfortable finger pad that requires 33 percent less finger pressure to use than other spray paint cans. The patented spray top, an integral part of the can’s design, shields the finger from paint and features a twist and lock design, so there is no separate top to remove or replace after use. In addition, the new PlastiKote spray paint formula provides consistent, quick-drying coverage, and dries smoother for a more polished, professional looking project with The Perfect Finish.
