Explain the advantage of electrostic paint spraying?
It provides an even coat of paint without flaws.
"Spray paint" comes in a can so you cannot add anything to it. If you are referring to spraying lacquer through a paint gun then yes, but you can only use lacquer thinner. If you're talking about spraying water base paint with an airless paint sprayer then only water can be used to thin it. For anything else you can use paint thinner or mineral spirits.
Two types of respirators are generally worn when spraying paint; air-purifying and air-supplied. If oxygen levels are not adequate, the air-supplying respirator must be used. The type of air-purifying respirators that are used during paint spraying remove particulate vapors and gas, and are called Particulate Vapor and Gas Removing Air-Purifying Respirators.
Why do my your spray gun drip out the tip when I release the trigger when you are spraying with a paint gun?
It depends on what you are spraying. If you're spraying high volumes of paint, or are applying materials that are thick, then an airless sprayer would work best. If you are doing lower volume work with thinner paints like alkyd oils, lacquers or automotive enamels, then a cup gun, either HVLP or high pressure air would work better.
Depends on what type of paint you're using, and what you're spraying. First, why do you need to? Almost ALL sprayers can handle 95% of the paints out there... only exceptions... dry-fall, block-fill, and other industrial paints. But if you need to... just use about 2-5% of what-ever your doing. If you have a gallon, add about a cup of water. I've added as much as 4-5 cups to a gallon when spraying to make…
yes, but it has to be thick paint.other wise it wont stay on. I would suggest a primer specifically formulated for plastic otherwise it will peel right off. Prime then paint with a paint made for plastic otherwise you will be repainting it anyhow (been there done that.) Krylon brand has a can of spray paint called Fusion. It is designed for painting plastic. Spraying thick paint will only eventually peel. No primer needed.
no... The paint gets an electrical charge and then the charged paint particles are attracted to the car, or whatever is being painted, just like a charged balloon sticks to a wall. Once the paint dries, it sticks much better to the surface and creates a smooth layer. Search "paint spraying - static electricity or " and the answer is on this very website
What kind of paint is it? Follow the manufacture's instructions; paint sellers usually have a product sheet that is really the instructions for mixing and using (spraying). Rule of thumb: when you add reducer stir ell and when finished strring count the seconds it takes for the paint on the stir stick to start dripping; no fewer than 8 seconds, no more than 25.
Spraying in high humidity,the paint will collect moisture before it hits the surface, and the surface will also be moist . The paint will later blister. Applying in too high a temperature can cause solvent blistering, often made worse by overthinning the paint and putting too much material on, in an attempt maintain a wet film. The use of slow thinners can help here.
It depends on where you're spraying. If you're spraying outside, away from a power source, the gas sprayer is better. Inside, or near an electrical outlet, the electric sprayer is probably better. Gas sprayers can be built to higher GPM ratings though, so a gas pump might be better if you're running three guns off one sprayer or if your spraying a thick coating
