Spray Equipment Recommendations and Requirements
Aldo Coatings recommends airless spray equipment to efficiently and effectively apply all ALDOCOAT products. Please refer to the following equipment specifications.
1. A gas powered airless spray rig with 3000 psi minimum.
2. Tip size of .031 to .035 for elastomeric coatings; .019-.021 for primer products.
3. Hose size of 3/8” for the first 100 feet; for additional footage, use larger size hose (1/2”).
It is important to always maintain the 3/8” for the first 100 feet from the spray gun towards the pump to maintain pressure. All elastomeric coatings are to be applied in a two-coat, cross directional pattern in order to ensure the proper coverage rate and dry film thickness (DFT) required for warranty protection. If proper results are not being achieved, please contact the Technical Department of Aldo Coatings immediately.
