The next supply & fix contract on a 3 M town house we have been asked to apply the sealer coat.

Normally we will just pass this to the painters for a drink :fing02:

But times as they are we might try one of these

Does anyone have any experience of them ? Good or Bad

Even if you dont spray it will take a power roller

Hi Captain perfect, i have got the wagnar 9150 twin stroke, nice bit of kit, but when you get one you may have to change the filter in the trigger housing, i think they have a colour code system. The one that mine came with was yellow and after a fuc*king nightmare of a day with the nozzel blocking or what i thought was the nozzel blocking, was infact the filter in the trigger, it was to fine for the primer & sealer to sieve through, we upgraded to a white filter and then it worked fine. Great tool that leaves a nice neat finish + its good fun...

Thanks for the tip :cool:

When we have put sealer on with a roller we pass it through a old kitchen sieve , I am always amazed at the amount of crud & grit in the mix.

For the price you pay for the Wagner it will be in after a couple of jobs, [ Maybe]

I think that will do the job,

That is a pretty small pump for the job, 1.25 l/m flow rate means it will be screaming the whole time you are using it, and not putting out as much paint as you would like. I would say you want a minimum of 2.1 l per minute for spraying anything larger than a bathroom. the titan 640ix would be the smallest i would use from the wagner range, i think you are looking at around 1400.00 + vat, or the graco stmax 395 for a fairly similar amount. general feedback leans more towards graco as the preferred machine. as far as filters go, you probably had a 30 mesh filter in your machine, either 60 or 100 mesh is best used for spraying primers and top coats.

Hey captain

apologies for delay just wondered if you got sorted with sprayer - couldn't get down to the machine mart pricing, unless i was purchasing 5 or more machines.

Hop you managed to get sorted :fing02:

Just an observation, but when you spray drywall sealer, do you get areas that are slightly 'prickly' where there may be some sanding residue or a roughed up paper surface from sanding? I know spraying is a quick way of doing it, but is the finish really better. I had a painter following us with an airless a few years ago and he just emulsioned straight on, and some areas felt like sandpaper, even though they were sanded dead smooth.

could be a couple reasons for that: 1 he didn't put enough paint on and the plasterboard sucked it up too quickly, causing a rough surface.
2. had the pressure too high, so the paint was bouncing backl off the wall, leaving a bad finish. if done correctly you should achieve a far superior finish with an airless

Did not have a problem with it being prickly spraying drywall sealer and the finish is perfect. The added bonus is it covers all the corners so the finish result looks "pukka".
