Application Methods


There is great debate over the merits of spraying paint, and many misconceptions have fueled this debate. Many believe that brushing provides better coverage and adhesion, neither of which is true.

Coverage is primarily an issue of the quality of the paint and the thickness of the film applied. Adhesion is determined by the type of resin in the paint and the quality of the surface preparation.

When paint is applied, it begins drying almost immediately. As the painter applies paint in an adjoining area, he must brush into the previously painted area. The drying paint does not flow as readily as when applied, and the resulting brushing can leave unsightly brush marks and uneven coverage.

This is less of an issue on small areas, as the entire surface can be painted before the paint becomes tacky. However, on larger areas, this is often impossible.

Many believe that spraying requires excessive thinning of the paint. While some paints must be thinned (oil based enamels, for example) to be properly sprayed, most paints can be sprayed without thinning.

Spraying allows for more uniform application. The paint can also be applied more heavily, resulting in a thicker film build. Ultimately, it is this thicker film build which determines coverage, as well as the durability of the paint.

With proper masking, and the use of shields, spraying provides a more efficient and effective application method.
