Make it yours
Krylon, Inc., was founded in 1947 by a Philadelphia businessman, Howard E. Kester, who revolutionized the paint industry.
Extensive Product Portfolio
Our product portfolio extends beyond home use. Krylon also delivers multi-purpose, brush-on, specialty, rust preventative, plastic, and craft solutions.
Krylon® aerosol strives to be eco-friendly by designing cans that are made from recycled steel and are intended for recycling when empty.
First to Market
Krylon innovated a way to combine his coatings into an aerosol paint that had many advantages over the brush-on method.
For the Community
Our contributions and commitments to our community extend far beyond the products and services we provide.
An Industry Color Leader
Krylon stands apart in product innovation, package design, project inspiration, and color.
Krylon® Products began its journey in 1947 as Foster & Kester. We introduced brush-on, clear protective acrylic coatings that were used in the large-scale art market. Kester innovatively created a way to blend his layers into aerosol paint, motivated by the DuPont Corporation's development of a formula that combined gas and liquid into a single spray can.
