KrylonSixty-one years ago, a Philadelphia businessman revolutionized the paint industry and founded Krylon®, Inc., the first and still largest supplier of aerosol paints in the world.

Krylon® Products were introduced in 1947 by Foster & Kester, a manufacturer of brush-on clear protective acrylic coatings used in the commercial art business. In the late 1940’s, DuPont Corporation developed the first aerosol package, which combined gas and liquids in a formula that could be sprayed from a single can. Howard E. Kester creatively devised a way to blend his coating products into an aerosol, which had many advantages over the brush-on method.

Shortly after Kester brought his idea to market, DuPont introduced Nylon. Kester was so impressed with this development that he dropped the first “n” from nylon, added the first and last letters of his own last name, and the Krylon® moniker was born!

Initial sales of Krylon® aerosol clear coatings were limited to the art and advertising trades. Then in the early fifties, color was added to the coatings and sales grew quickly with endless boundaries.

Today, Krylon® is known for its commitment as an industry leader in product innovation, package design, project inspiration and color. Our range of products expands beyond the home and into your backyard with multi-purpose, plastic, specialty, rust preventative, brush-on and craft products.
