Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Why change from paint brushing to spray painting?
A. Spray painting is a very efficient way of applying a finish to a piece of work or project. You will save precious time and material and you will provide a professional finish. Spraying paint is very easy to master and makes almost any painting job easier.
Q. Does it matter what size spray paint unit I buy?
A. Yes, you need to ensure the spray paint unit suits your contract size and that it is capable of applying the required materials. Wood finishing equipment will differ from a texture sprayer whilst other spray machines would be considered paint spraying equipment.
Q. Why are spray tip sizes different?
A. Different materials require different spray tip sizes. We'd be more than happy to advise you on the size of spray tips that you need to use for different spray paints, when you want to spray plaster and texture spraying.
Q. What savings are involved in airless spraying?
A. Airless spray painting is 5 to 10 times faster than brushing and rolling. An airless spray application rate of 150m² to 250 m² in an hour is possible with a small single airless paint spray gun. We have a wide range of airless paint sprayers and other airless spray equipment to meet your requirements.
Q. Won't I lose time masking up?
A. For each hour spent masking you will save 4 hours of rolling and get a superior finish.
Q. What materials can I use in Airless sprayer units?
A. Airless spray guns can handle most smooth paint i.e. Gloss/undercoat, Varnish and Emulsion (external and internal quality). Wood Coatings, Bitumen, Intumescents and Floor Paints can also be used in an airless paint sprayer.
