The first truly responsible, planet-friendly aerosol paint has
hit the hardware shelves in Australia.
Four years of intense research by Australia-based White Knight
Paints has resulted in a spray paint that can't be used for
'chroming' (the deliberate inhalation of the solvents to achieve a
'high'); is lead-free; contributes no CFCs to the ozone layer; is
shunned by graffiti daubers; and its cans are fully recyclable.
The entire range of Squirts gloss enamels, Rust Guard metal
protection finishes and most other White Knight speciality paints
is now available in this unique format. Statistics show the
dangerous habit of 'chroming' is increasing each year amongst
young, disaffected Australians prompting White Knight Paints to
develop this far safer formula for its paints that can't give any
sort of 'high' through inhalation, unlike other aerosol paints.
Secondly, the new aerosol cans actually help overcome the problem
These new cans carry an innovative nozzle that delivers a fine
mist of paint in a broad arc which, when applied in several sweeps,
gives a finish previously acquired only by professionals. The one
thing it doesn't do is deliver paint in one thick, paint-saturated
hit - the type the graffiti vandals love. Lead and CFCs have also
been removed from White Knight's new aerosol paints while the cans
themselves are now fully recyclable.
At present there are more than 320 councils around Australia
that accept the cans, with more coming on board all the time.To
ensure these new, low-tox aerosol cans are easily identifiable each
can will carry a distinctive 'Safe to Spray' sticker or logo.
Legislation has been introduced in Australia that requires
retailers to keep all spray cans under lock and key, in an attempt
to reduce the amount of graffiti vandalism that is costing State
governments millions of dollars each year.
White Knight Paints will continue its endeavours to produce high
quality paints that deliver professional results for the consumer
while making the vandalism of public and private property
increasingly difficult. All locally made White Knight Paints
speciality spray cans with their new low-tox formulae are available
nationally from paint specialists and hardware outlets. For
