We are here to help. Feel free to give us a call or text with any questions you have. In the meantime, here are some questions we are frequently asked.

ONE HIT WONDER BASECOAT

What is One Hit Wonder or "OHW Paint"?

One Hit Wonder is a ready-to-spray, solvent-based paint that goes direct to virtually every substrate without the need for reducers, primers or adhesion promoters. A high-quality, automotive grade basecoat, One Hit Wonder can be used with or without applying hydrographic film.

One Hit Wonder is mixed and canned in our in-house mixing facility in Suwanee, Georgia using the finest materials and deepest pigments available. One Hit Wonder is only sold through OHW Paint Co.

Do I need to purchase a reducer or primer with OHW

No. One Hit Wonder comes ready-to-spray and does not require additional reducers or primers.  

Please note that One Hit Wonder has been designed with dense resins, binders and pigments which can settle at the bottom of the can so it is important to stir and/or shake thoroughly before spraying, in order to achieve maximum potential.

Can I spray One Hit Wonder direct to Plastic*? Metal? Stainless Steel? Chrome? Wood? Bone? Fiberglass? Glass?

Yes. One Hit Wonder goes direct to virtually all substrates after a degrease, scuff, and tack cloth. For glass, you can degrease, scuff and tack cloth but media blast is best. Open grained woods should be sealed first to prevent water entry and future warping.

*HDPE plastics require flame treatment before degrease and scuff for all proper paint applications. How can you tell if it is HDPE? Check for a stamp, ask the manufacturer or try an acetone test. Take a cloth with acetone and rub it on the plastic in a hidden spot. If the plastic reacts in any way (goes tacky or matte) it is most likely not HDPE.

Can I spray One Hit Wonder over other paints?

As long as the paints are dry, and free from silicone or oily residues and contaminants, you should be able to degrease, scuff, tack cloth, and spray.

Can I use One Hit Wonder as a primer?

Yes. If there is a specific color that One Hit Wonder is currently not available in*, then it can be used as a primer for other paints. One Hit Wonder will accept both solvent and water-based paints over it.

*We do mix custom colors on request. Please contact us for more information at 305-318-1459.

How do I prep my part before painting?

Like all proper paint applications, One Hit Wonder requires a clean surface to adhere to. Please refer to the Application Guide included with each order for a step-by-step guide that shows you the right degreaser and cloths to use to prep your part for the best results.

How do I apply One Hit Wonder?

One Hit Wonder paint is designed to spray using a 1.3-1.4 tip @ 22 PSI (unless using our aerosol). For a simple step-by-step please refer to the Application Guide.

How much time do I have to dip a part after it’s painted with One Hit Wonder?

Unlike most solvent-based paints that require you to dip within 8 hours of application, One Hit Wonder has an 18-month dipping window.

How long can the part remain “uncleared” after dipping?

We have tested a successful 14-day period between dipping and applying clear coat.

What clear coats work with One Hit Wonder?

In addition to our OHW clear coats, most professional grade automotive 2 part clears will work fine with One Hit Wonder paint.

What is the temperature threshold for One Hit Wonder?

One Hit Wonder has been tested up to 400 degrees and can be used for valve covers and engine parts, as long as it is not the hot side of a turbo or an exhaust header you'll be ok.

What do I do with leftovers? How do I clean my gun?

Pour any leftover paint back into the can and reseal. You can use acetone or any inexpensive lacquer thinner to clean your spray gun.

How long is the shelf life of One Hit Wonder?

As long as it’s kept in a sealed can, indefinite.

Can I mix One Hit Wonder colors?

Absolutely! We’ve even created a Mix Kit ratio sheet with formulas to help you create some of the more popular One Hit Wonder colors. Please note that these formulas are intended for One Hit Wonder paints only. You can purchase the entire Mix Kit here. 

Can you create a custom mixed One Hit Wonder color?

Yes. Besides fluorescents, we can mix a 1-quart minimum if you send us a swatch. There is no custom mix fee.

What is One Hit Wonder paint "2.0"?

In March 2016 we updated the One Hit Wonder formula to be more resistant to activator (no more soft/tacky paint). All One Hit Wonder paint purchased after March 28, 2016 is the new 2.0 formula.

Also, in March 2017 we retired our original label (spaceman) and debuted a new cobra design on the One Hit Wonder basecoat cans. The paint formula remained the same.

GENERAL QUESTIONS

Do you sell film?

While we do sell film as part of a kit, we are not a hydrographic film supplier. Our main focus is to provide the best paint, activator and clear coat on the market. Our products are designed and built by us, so we can give you the best technical support when you need it.

So where do you go for film? Unless it is a custom print, most film originates from the same overseas manufacturer so you have lots of options. We suggest looking for a vendor that has great customer service, fair prices and quick turnaround times. There are some great ones to choose from.

THIS IS WHY I USE OHW

We painted 2 aluminum cans with One Hit Wonder, 3 days later we dipped them and once dried we cleared them using OHW Gloss and Matte Clears. The pictures show that with the thinnest of surfaces, there was absolutely no de-lamination of paint, film or clear to any extent. This is why I use OHW Paint! Thanks again for all you do for the hydrographic industry!
