Tech Tip - Coating Yields
Posted By DEMILEC
Determining yields on coatings is not unlike determining yields on spray
foam, The following hold true for both:
(1) Smoothness of surface
(2) Material temperature
(3) Thickness applied
(4) Equipment & tip size used
(5) Sprayer experience
For all of our recommended coatings, there is a Data sheet with specs listed
for that product.
If the specs are not followed, yields will change.
Sprayer experience is also very important. Measuring thickness’s
correctly with a Millage Scale is part of this experience. Knowing and
understanding spraying with different tip sizes and pressures for a specified
coating, recognizing changes in irregular surface profiles and covering
only what has been specified. Coating wood members while spraying over
foam reduces yield. If it’s not specified to be coated, then it
shouldn’t be coated.
NOTE: Follow instructions….have proper equipment…the more
you spray the better you get.
