Insuring A Good Finish Each and Every Time
Air Spray Tech Consulting
Every paint shop or finishing line needs to be consistent in the paint job or product finish they delivery each and every time they apply paints. A few simple tools will help prepare your paint for application. Everyone should have they following for each coating they apply. First of all a Material Safety Data Sheet, Technical Data Sheet, A stop watch and a viscosity cup. The viscosity cup will measure the resistance to flow of the paint. Dip the cup into the paint until the top lip of the cup in under the surface of the paint. Raise the cup from the paint. Start the stop watch and time how long it takes for the paint to evacuate the cup. Stop the watch when the cup is empty. Record the number of seconds. Check the paint's Technical Data Sheet for suggested viscosity range for spray application. Maintain a log book of each time you mix paint. Record the paint temperature, the amount and type of solvent that has been added and viscosity. Spray out a panel and report results in the log. Is the film acceptable or is the film rough and not a commercial film. Adjust air spraying pressure, adjust material delivery and or add additional solvent as required to achieve proper atomization.
