CLEVELAND, OH--(Marketwired - Sep 23, 2014) - When it comes to home improvement projects, choosing the right tools is half the battle. Now, consumers can have it all with Rust Protectorfrom Krylon®, the nation's leader in spray paint. It's the perfect tool for any outdoor painting needs and offers dry time in as little as eight minutes for performance, and color, you don't have to wait for.

Why is dry time so important? The longer paint takes to dry, the more of a chance there is for foreign particles, such as bugs, grass or dirt, to stick to the surface. And, for outdoor projects, where wind and weather are factors, fast dry-time is an extremely important attribute to consider when choosing a paint product.

"We know life gets busy and some things can't wait," said Shelley Hoffman, Krylon product manager. "By reducing the spray paint dry time to as little as eight minutes -- or up to 15 times faster than the leading rust competitor -- the wait for flawless spray paint results is now over."

New, fast-drying Rust Protector is available in both sprays and brush-on formulas to meet any painting need. Additionally, the Rust Protector line offers a wide range of color and special finishes to meet most any outdoor project need, including: gloss, semi-gloss, satin, flat, metallic, hammered, textured and multi-color textured. 

The paint can be used direct to metal with superior results, unlike the competition. It can also be used on a variety of other substrates, offering corrosion protection, adhesion and durability.

Best of all, you won't have to pay a premium for this innovative, fast-drying product. Rust Protector can be found at home centers and hardware stores at a suggested retail price of $3.97-$4.97 for spray enamels. Pricing for special finishes and brush-on formulas will vary.

All Krylon aerosol paints are in compliance with the California Clean Air Act for Aerosol Coatings and the California Low Emissions and Reactivity Rule (CLEAR). For more home improvement tips, additional information about Rust Protector or any Krylon products, visit
