Spot Repair

"Spot repair" refers to a special refinishing method in which the repair is limited to the damaged area. We show here how it works and what you should pay attention to.

Spot Repair Facts

Spot painting is a real alternative to painting entire components. Since scuffs or scratches are unsightly and can lead to price reductions when selling, it is worthwhile to remove minor damage professionally, quickly and inexpensively using SPOT painting.

Areas such as fenders, bumpers or mirror caps, etc. are particularly suitable for spot repair painting. The size of the paint damage should be no larger than the palm of your hand.

Application areas

Area A

In this area, refinishing with SprayMax makes sense and is recommended. The ideal area for SprayMax beginners.

Area B

In this area, depending on the requirements profile and painting skills, refinishing with SprayMax is feasible.

Area C

In this area, with very good painting skills and experience, refinishing with SprayMax is feasible.

The paint structure

Here are the individual layers in the schematic representation. The products and product combinations depend on the respective damage and the respective requirements and process conditions.

We have explained the most common paint damage and your possible repair methods in detail here:


Fill Clean

The desired shades of the customers simply Filled

With the FillClean filling device, nothing stands in the way of simple and fast filling of the original color into the aerosol can. The filling of the original color tone is possible for both solvent-based and water-based paint systems of the paint manufacturers. The SprayMax FillClean cans are already pre-filled with the specific solvents and propellants.


How to successfully apply products with SprayMax sprays

From primer fillers and primers to base coats and top coats
1K or 2K products - even large parts can be painted
without any problems, you just have to follow a few tips
Ralf Ertle Application engineer at SprayMax

Our application technician has these hints and tips when using SprayMax aerosols:

  • The perfect preparation

As with spray gun painting, substrate preparation is also crucial for spray can painting. Surfaces to be painted must be clean, dry and free of grease. Ralf Ertle emphasizes: "Even though spray can painting produces less overspray: Everything that is not to be painted must be covered with tape and paper."

  • Shaken, not stirred

To ensure the best possible application of the material from the can, the spray can must be shaken before use. Ertle elaborates, "After the substrate has been prepared in the usual manner, the spray can must be shaken thoroughly for about two minutes after the mixing ball has been struck." This ensures that the product in the can is optimally mixed and that the paint application appears even.

  • Test spray

In contrast to the spray gun, where the optimum distance to the object is defined when painting, trial spraying on a practice area is worthwhile when spray can painting: "This allows the painter to see how the spray jet comes out of the can and applies to the surface and, above all, what distance he has to keep from his object," explains Ertle.

  • Thin layers in a cross coat

When painting, the spray can should always be held vertically. The spray pass starts outside the object. "It's best to spray several thin coats in a crisscross pattern, first vertically, then horizontally. Wait two to three minutes in between," the expert recommends. The ideal working temperature is between 20 and 25 degrees Celsius.

  • 2K coatings from the spray can

How do 2K coatings from the spray can work? In the SprayMax products from Kwasny, hardener is located in a separate cartridge inside the can. By firmly pressing a special attachment onto the bottom of the can, the inner sleeve is pushed through. "This allows the hardener and active ingredient in the can to come into contact," Ertle points out.
