It is important to know the difference between lacquered and unlacquered tins, and what can go in either. If you put certain products in the wrong can they can react with either the metal or the lacquer on the inside of the can, either rusting or dissolving, which is not what you want to happen to your paint.

Lacquered

  • Water based paints
  • Etch primers

Unlacquered

  • Strong solvents
  • Cellulose
