How to Use USC Aerosols Like a Pro

Taylor Schultz of Schultz Designz demos a quick panel repair using US Chemical’s Aerosol lineup.

This range of Aerosols offers everything you need for a repair from Primer Surfacer, Etch Primer, Plastic Adhesion Promoter, Surface Cleaners, and more.

Why choose an aerosol over a paint gun setup?

Aerosols can be intimidating to many traditional automotive painters who are comfortable using a standard paint gun setup. There may be some skepticism as to the results they can produce. However, once you try them out and become familiar with how to use them properly, they are another tool you can add to your arsenal.

Say you only have a quick repair to complete. They are much more convenient than setting up a standard gun setup. And what if you are somewhere that does not have a compressed air system? You don’t have to worry about bringing a whole compressor system with you. Aerosols are easily portable, compared to bringing gallons of other products with you as well. There is less product waste, no mixing (aside from shaking the can for a few minutes), and no additional clean-up. In other words, aerosols can save you a ton of time and money.
