Krylon Fusion paint for plastic

hey all, i just saw a commercial for this paint and was wondering if it was any good. it says that,
"Bonds to all plastic and provides a tough seal like no other paint will"

Also; "The search is over. Now there's a paint line for plastic from Krylon®. So you can easily make that old waste paper basket or plastic chair and table set look new again. Fusion - The no-prep, superbond paint for plastic."

Also; "No sanding, no priming, no fuss, Dries in 15 minutes or less, Features the EZ Touch Fan™ Spray Nozzle


i want 2 paint the interior of my car silver and this would eliminate the sanding of the plastic. thnx and hope u guys can provide sme insight. : )

I have used the Fusion and it works alright. I would suggest just sanding, primering, sanding, painting, and clearcoating if you want it to look good.

Yes, it works and I have used it as well but if you carefully take the extra care and time to prepare whatever you are painting it will come out even better.
