Universal Hammered Sprays are versatile all-surface paints that provide a durable protective coating with excellent resistance to rust, and excellent resistance to abrasion, fading, chipping, and dulling. Universal Hammered Sprays are suitable for use on metal, wood, plastic, wicker and aluminum. These sprays apply easily, provide excellent coverage and dry fast to a tough attractive finish. Universal features a comfort grip trigger that reduces fatigue caused by continuous spraying and an any-angle tip which allows you to spray at any angle. Some plastics made of polyethylene such as Little Tikes® children’s products are manufactured in such a way that may hinder maximum paint adhesion. Test paint in an inconspicuous area first. Not for use on galvanized metal.

How to Use Universal Hammered Spray
Appropriate Conditions to Spray
Use outdoors or in a well ventilated area such as an open garage. Use when temperature is between 50-90ºF (10-32ºC) and humidity is below 65% to ensure proper drying. Do not use on objects that may exceed 200ºF (93ºC) surface temperature. Do not apply to galvanized steel. Avoid spraying in very windy and dusty conditions. Cover surrounding area to protect from spray mist.
Remove all dirt, grease, oil, salt and chemical contaminants by washing the surface with a commercial detergent, or other suitable cleaning method. Rinse with fresh water and allow to thoroughly dry. Remove loose paint and rust with a wire brush or sandpaper. Previously coated surfaces must be sound and in good condition. Smooth, hard, or glossy finishes should be scarified by sanding to create a surface profile.
Shake can vigorously for one minute after the mixing ball begins to rattle. If mixing ball fails to rattle DO NOT STRIKE CAN. Contact Rust-Oleum. Shake often during use. Prior to use, slide off the red safety clip from the trigger. Hold can upright 8-12” from surface and spray in a steady back-and-forth motion, slightly overlapping each stroke. Keep the can the same distance from the surface. Keep the can in motion while spraying. Apply two or more light coats a few minutes apart. For best results, apply several light coats versus one heavy coat. Do not use near open flame.
