    FAKED MONTANA CANS


    THE DIFFERENCES ARE:

    FAKED CANS:

    - The info about how to use the can (on the backside) is written in german, english, polish, finish, sweden and danish. And also the background is black and the letters are white, the oposite of the original.
    - Has no "boina", instead has a transparent plastic piece on it.
    - When the can says: manufactured for L+G in german, must been made in Barcelona, Spain.
    - The "donut" it looks the same.
    - Underneath of the can has a stamp that says the color in spanish, france and english.
    - The paint is not the same quality and so not the one we guarantee.

    Montana Colors is allready in a judicial way for taking out from the market the faked cans.

    montnana

    ive herd about the montanan thing

    i think depends on what factory it was made in, Spain or Germany

    if it comes from Germany then its the "fake" stuff, im not even shure its fake
    it could be that it is just different cans with a slightly different mixture

    after all you cant just call you bissness after a well known company and manufature the same product and seel it under the intentions that it is the product of the other company

    also i herd that the company in germany make "Proline - Aerosol art Color" and that it was proline in a montatan can

    who noes just get your paint from a compay who bys it in from spain

    it's true, not bullshit. basically Montana in a pro-line tin - had a few and they were cool, also had a few and they sucked. Up to you really, but I'd go for Molotow anyday!

    I doubt that the quality of the paint is that bad..

    Just be careful where you buy your paint.

    I've actually got 2 of the black cans, and 2 of the white cans sitting on top of my Cd player. ESIS mailed them to me from holland.. The paint was excellent in both colors, and I have 4 left.. I assume they will work just as good.
     
  15. Dude, its the same thing, like a Coca Cola from France and a Coca Cola from the States, same thing made in two different factories. Believe me, I know the whole story.
