Q: What is the difference between Montana GOLD and BLACK ?
A: There are different lacquers for different uses/tasks. Every single one has got it’s own features so therefore the one
you choose comes down to your own preference. The new Montana GOLD is compatible with the Montana BLACK 400ml.

Q: Paint Qualities: What is Nitro-Combi (Montana BLACK spray paint)?
A: A lacquer consisting of nitrocellulose and alkyd resin, which dries fast due to the rapid evaporation time of the solvent used.
Q: Paint Qualities: What is Acrylic (Montana GOLD spray paint)?
A: A lacquer of acrylic resin basis , which dries fast due to the rapid evaporation time of the solvent used.
Q: Paint Qualities: What is Synthetic (Montana WHITE spray paint)?
A: A lacquer of alkyd resin basis which oxidises (dries) by reacting with oxygen. The lacquer has depth of volume
when applied and maintains this volume after the solvents have evaporated. This results in a longer drying time then
the Acrylic- or Niro-Combi-Lacquer. Synthetic resin also yellows faster than Acrylic- and Nitro-Combi-Lacquers.
Q: What is High- and Lowpressure?
A: Essentially a low pressure can ejects the paint with less force through the cap. This enables the user more control
to create fine lines, details and effects when using skinny outline caps. A high pressure can ejects the paint through
the cap at a faster rate at a higher volume. This enables the user to cover more surface area, faster.
This is optimised when by using a fatter cap.
Q: Overpainting: Can I combine the different MONTANA products?
A: The new Montana GOLD can be combined with Montana BLACK 400ml.
Q: Overpainting: Can I paint on oilpaint? Which MONTANA product is recommended ?
A: As with the previous question, always ask your self if the surface you wish to overpaint is completely dry?
Oil paint dries extremely slowly. So we advise against mixing our lacquers with oil paint.
However it is not an issue if you overpaint with oil paints onto dry Montana paint.
Q: Surfaces: On which surfaces can I paint with MONTANA products?
A: Every surface has got different characteristics of absorption and adhesion. For example cardboard is a very porous
surface which absorbs the paint. Painting un-primed cardboard will result in a lot of paint usage. If the chosen surface
is non-porous, then Montana paints will apply perfectly. If painted on a surface like Glass which is an extremely non-porous
surface, the color cannot adhere because it can’t “hold-on” to the glass. It will however cover the surface quickly.
The optimal surfaces are neutral, pre- primed surfaces where the coating primer can adhere to the surface well and
our lacquer can adhere again to the primer. Please test small areas of your proposed surface to see if the paint will adhere.
In the case of Plastics we are unable to predict levels of adhesion due to the unknown chemical composition of all plastics.
Q: Surfaces: Which Paint to use for which surface?
A: The more non-porous a surface is, the more the output volume of MONTANA BLACK works as an advantage.
The more porous and more even a surface is, the more advantageous it becomes to use the MONTANA GOLD
which avoids dripping. Please always consider of the adhesion characteristics of your chosen surface.
Q: What is the difference between MONTANA spray cans and other DIY aerosol sprays?
A: MONTANA products have been developed and optimized over years by artists, writers and scientist to provide
a perfect tool for special requirements. Characteristics like short drying time, proper coverage, a brilliant and extremely
wide color table and more are due to that.
Q: MONTANA Dealers: Where can I get MONTANA spray cans?
A: please refer to our dealer’s list.

professionals as well as amateurs.
