It is a frequent question here as to what paint is safe to use in a tank. That always brings a question to mind. Often the brand name Krylon is suggested. Is there a reason for this brand being recommended over others? I have not done any research on the contents of any paint but often the major brand packages the store brands and they are the same thing. Anybody got any real info if the $1 rattle can is any different than Krylon?

The only difference is krylon fusion is supposedly made to bond to plastic,glass, and other surfaces other paints won't . I have never tried using anything else due to other have done it with no ill outcome. If you try it please post the results.

As long as it says you can use it for plastics, it's fine. I've used one by rustoleum. Nothing magic about Krylon, just seems to be the one mentioned 99% of the time here.
