paint product

has anyone heard of a product that I think is an aerosol spray, which you spray into a can of varnish, paint , etc. that removes the air to keep the remaining paint or varnish from filming over?


cant remember where I read it... umm, fading memory I guess.

Yep, Bloxygen. It'll keep activators (hardeners) fresh too. It's really just Argon in a can, so if you have a mig welder you might already have a cylinder of it handy.

if you have a TIG welder, you can use the argon gas to preserve the paint.
Bloxygen is pure argon gas. . . . and yes, it works quite well !!

Just a bit of a warning, when you get the can of Boxyen and pick it up it feels empty. Just the way it is.
