WRX Spray Paint Review – Aerosol

Updated May 30, 2024 | Posted Jul 31, 2021 | Product Reviews, Paints | 0 comments

WRX Spray Paint is a high-quality acrylic paint with high coverage. WRX’s meets all requirements for professional users. Intended for indoor and outdoor usage.

It has excellent adhesion, good characteristics and is suitable for various materials painting. For example, Iron, brass, aluminium, ceramic, plastic, UPVC and wood.

You can use this paint without the need for an additional primer too, which makes everything less expensive and more efficient.

It is a quick drying spray paint which can be overpainted, making it ideal for various hobbies, modelling and industries.

Unique spray nozzles deliver a 50-50 paint-gas every time. Nano-technology is enhancing the molecular bonding between the resin and the pigment.

WRX has developed a nozzle called “MICROMIST” where the channels in the nozzle create a “Whirl” effect.

I first use this on a yellowing plastic lost hatch. I would have normally used MSP. However, I thought WRX would be better as the loft hatch gets regular use so didn’t want the paint to crack.

First impressions are very good, although good ventilation is required. As with white it did take a full can to get the full coverage.

The following day I did a scratch test, and it didn’t move.

Also, I did more work for the customer a few months later and he said it’s still like new. Being a water-based product, it will never turn yellow over time.

The newfound confidence of using this spray lead me to my next project. The bathroom was white, but the bath panel was yellowing. So, 2 cans of WRX did the panel with ease and it looks like new.

This really is good stuff available in almost every colour with matt/satin and gloss finishes.

Price varies from £6.50-£9.99 per can and you can buy these products online from TopDec Decorating Supplies. As well as Crown Decorating Centres.

Final Thoughts

 

WRX spray paint is a quality aerosol. I like how easy it is to use and how readily available it is. The opacity and adhesion are spot on. A good product all round.

Does anyone else keep a big box of WRX Spray Paint in their garage?
