In 1947, the Philadelphia businessman, Howard E. Kester, found the first and largest supplier of aerosol paint in the world Krylon Inc, which came out to be a revolution in the paint industry. In the same year, the exclusive products of Krylon® were introduced by Foster & Kester.
Foster & Kester are manufactures of brush-on clear protective acrylic coatings, which are widely used in the commercial art businesses. The products are inspired by the DuPont Corporation's development of a formula that combines gas and liquid into a single spray can. Kester innovated a creative way to blend his coatings into a product that had many advantages over the brush-on method – aerosol.
