Protection for opened paint cans

This is a MUST for anyone who uses much paint. With the cost of paint unbelievably high, this will save you $$$$$$. It is a MUST for POR15 or other urethane paints that harden in partially used cans very quickly.

I wonder if you could use Argon gas to do the same thing? I have a tank for tig welding and my understanding is that Argon is a truly inert gas. I may give it a try and see..........GlennK

Argon, CO2, nitrogen, all will work. The stuff in the can is a lot more convenient and is designed to be a little heavier than air so it will tend to displace oxygen and stay in the can. Point is, with today's paint prices, it is cost effective to do something.

CO2 will not work the O is oxygen right? carcondioxide 1 carbon bonded to 2 oxygen??? Nitrogen and argon will both, are inert and heavier than air. If you have a mig or tig then you have argon around.

CO2 is very inert and can be used on auto paints. The oxygen is tied up so is not active. Only danger is forming carbonic acid in the presence of water so I wouldn't use it for latex paint but then that stuff doesn't skim like oil and urethanes so inert blanket on them isn't critical.

i'd like to try out the mig gas on some por15, but it's already hardened into a super puck.
