ive seen the small pump, but with a bucket coat set up (hose and gun)
what hose did you use and what gun? was it a thin garden hose like one or the thicker 19mm black one? and was it just the small silver lance spray gun used to spray?
i think it needs a better gun as refina dont currently...
done this for a year... did it on my house.... found out why its a no go.
makes the surface skim brittle and weak almost dusty, once painted even when primed the paint bond is poor and can damage easy and pull away . After finding this to be true i went back to doing 2 coats with no issue.
Yes it sure does, but the fact we can control a large amount of skim very easily, work on it while wet and finish with a perfect finish and no water needed . And go home full off energy!
The old way works, this new way moves on the game.
Give it a try, im just sharing my tried and tested...
This is what ive always said, with the spats also, and i own all the tools and have done for years.
The best way i have found is to speedskim your laying on, this removes lines in a way that will not show once painted, unlike the flexi spats and trowels that give the impression of a flat wall...
did 30bags yesterday and spread 5L of accelerator over the mixes. had a few issues and sprayed on at 2pm ish we stayed floating until 9.30pm!
back in today and all on by 11am and left at 6pm!
hate floating this end of the year, prefer scratch back or spraying 1.5 bucket coats.
or you could get around most of the problems by Spraying the topcoats.... you can spray in the sun... can do large area with 2/3 people also you can stop if needed and spray back into your last area another day.
lots of taping and wrapping up but a uniform finish with out so many restrictions...
Ive been looking at a local pump for sale its a Wagner PC830
it has a speed setting form 1-10 and i can see on you tube it sprays all the texture coats but cant see it spraying Mono or backing coats?
do you think it will spray backing coats?
lightly run the lines out with a trowel/ taping knife
IMP its best not to use a sponge , we were told it weakens the basecoat and if top coat fails it will be clear water was used on the basecoat and void the warranty?
lay on tidy , spat tidy, and run lines of the next day with a tape...
run the spat lines out with a trowel / tapping knife , they will be soft the next day.
IMP no need to sponge a base coat , aslo we were told never to sponge basecoat as it only weakens the finish and will void warranty if top coat fails.
when i compare areas i sponged to just finished with...
Letâ€™s not forget the reason BG came up with this "spray finish". Multi finish is not to be sprayed as it does not bond correctly to the surface and BG will not back you up if you spray apply it. Spray finish is a very fine grade and is for use on over skim, as the moisture will be drawn out of...
