Re: Can you spray SW Emerald Urethane Trim Enamel?

Hi Pat,

Looking at the available docs on this product, it appears very similar to Benny Moore's "Advantage" product which I used in my HVLP test in the Articles Section. Short line is I needed to thin the product with close to 30% added water to get the atomization needed for an even sprayed coating that leveled well. If you're fixed on the product, I'd suggest you by a quart (or other smaller amount) and do some careful experiments to get it right. Ask the paint guy for a recommended viscosity cup.

Also note that these waterbased alkyds take longer to dry. In that case, holding the target surface horizontal will do a lot to avoid runs or sags. It you have to do a vertical surface, back off on your material feed and use more lighter coats with time in between to let the film set up before recoating.
