Montana-Cans products work great to rework steel & aluminum bike frames!

Please note that none of our Paints and Primers work on Carbon Fiber frames!

To ensure best results and a long lasting paint-job, please follow the steps below:

  1. Make sure to remove any or as much as possible of the existing paint and lacquer residue completely to avoid any unwanted chemical reactions which could lead to cracks, dents or bubbles. Before applying a primer, clean off all dirt, dust and oil/chain grease residue. The type of primer to use depends on the frame material: We provide primers for Aluminum, Metal and a Universal version. Before applying any new layer of primer/paint, we suggest slight wet-sanding for optimal results (not required) with fine grit paper (above 160).

  2. After priming, please leave to cure for the recommended amount of time before proceeding to paint your frame. We recommend using our Montana GOLD series for best results and work with multiple, thin layers of paint applied in a regular, “swaying” movement to avoid runny spots or “noses”. Leave to cure for the recommended amount of time afterwards. To protect the paint and increase durability, we recommend using a hardwearing, 2-component (“2K”) varnish.
