Aerosol Enamel Spray Paint
Bobcat Aerosol Enamel Spray Paint
It's important to color match your paint for a well-maintained looking machine. So only use Bobcat Paint from your local Bobcat dealer to ensure the correct colors. Bobcat paint quarts are spray ready; additional thinning is usually not necessary. Aerosol cans feature a unique fan spray tip that delivers an oval shaped spray pattern. The fan spray gives better coverage and delivers a more uniform spray that allows the can to be held closer to the work surface for better control and overall spray reduction. Bobcat enamel paint coatings will dry dust free in 10-15 minutes, dry to handle in 30-45 minutes, and dry complete in about 24 hours. For more detailed information, see the direction panel on each container.
Aerosols should be stored in a cool dry place. When ready to apply, allow paint to warm to room temperature (70-75° F is an ideal application temperature). Parts to be painted should also be at a similar temperature for optimum performance.
Application at higher temperatures may result in “orange peel” due to rapid solvent evaporation. Spraying with a cool can and/or applying to a cool part could result in running and sagging due to slow evaporation of solvents from the paint film.
For best results apply 2 to 3 light passes of spray mist to the surface and allow approximately 30 seconds for some of the solvents to leave the film. This will allow you to apply a heavier finished coat that should resist runs and sags.
Additional coats should be applied only if needed and while the film is still tacky, but not wet. Again, this method will help to avoid runs and sags.
It is always advisable to develop your own spray technique on a scrap part first.
If recoating is required after the film has dried it is important to wait at least 72 hours with acrylic enamels. Lacquers can be recoated at any time.
Bobcat Touch-up Paint
Many times you simply need a little dab of paint to care for scratches on Bobcat equipment. So instead of opening a new can of spray paint for a small job, turn to your local Bobcat Parts department for touch up paint. Each brush-in-lid bottle contains 1/2 fl oz of high performance paint. This paint is available in red, charcoal, white and orange. It is the same paint that’s offered in quarts and spray cans through your Bobcat Parts department.

Bobcat Brilliance before and after photos
Bobcat Brilliance products will enhance the appearance of your used equipment without the expense of repainting and the hassle of replacing decals.
Unlike waxes, that just temporarily shine the surface, Bobcat Brilliance works by penetrating deep into the existing oxidized surface and actually interacts with the existing pigment to bring the original color back to a like new appearance.
The Process: Simply Clean/degrease and then apply Bobcat Brilliance Prep to remove oxidized paint surface and lingering waxes. Touch up scratches and chips with OEM paint. Next, cover with an even coat of Bobcat Brilliance Shine (no masking required). The result is impressive. In as little as an hour, you can transform your weathered piece of equipment into a valuable asset with a Brilliant showroom shine. All of this for a fraction of the time and money you would spend on repainting.
