Hi All
Question - Has anyone ever used an airless sprayer - the industrial type that feed straight out the paint tin ??
are they anygood and what kind of finish do they produce ??
Can they be used in a house ??
I want to paint my house - inside - but it gets lots of lght so even the slightest DRY spot off a roller is showing up
Ive put 30 litres -yes 30 on the room and its like its just had one coat !! ::b
Ive even PVA the whole room in case it was sinking in through the plaster board
If I dont get it sorted soon Im going to have to buy smaller furniture as the room is getting smaller !!!
Any help advice gladly accepted :dunno:

Have fun with that thread....I would suggest lining the walls, then starting again....

With a Trade emulsion....

I'm guessing the paint chuckers are going to ask what make of paint you've been using?

30 litres :wtf:

:lol: Paint Chuckers and Stickers. That should be on every van in the country.

30 litres (or 6 gallons by my reckoning) ........ That's a colossal amount of paint to have been used, or an enormous room. :shock: How many coats was that? And yes, what kind of paint have you been using?

If you've been using that Homebase Value or B&Q el cheapo gear, then that may explain why you've been tearing your hair out. The white from those ranges, covers hee-haw (as we say up here) and is basically a waste of money.

Have you PVA'd the whole room or just any patchy bits? (please don't say the whole room)

If your using an industrial airless sprayer, it will spray heavy emulsions, contract emulsion easily. this would obliterate any surface. As a cost effective method on one house i wouldnt recommend this. I wouldnt recommend using airless spray unless your well competent....1, potential clean up disaster...2, Airless spray can be very dangerous if misused.
I would definitely change your paint...Dulux, crown etc and use a roller and a brush

Hi All
Im using LEYLAND SUPER LAYTEX EMULSION
Ive used it loads before when Ive plastered and normally covers great and NO problems
I had coated the room firstly with B&Q Trade paint for new plaster as there wes a lot of exposed drywall filler that I had to use to FIX the "PROFESSIONALS" mess that was meant to be a finished dry lining job (LAWSON & COWELL Dry lining contractors)
Im using a roller as usual and brush for cutting in
Just seem to keep getting DRY SPOTS like the paint has been stretched to far and when the light hits it it looks terrible
hence the full room PVA thinking it must be soaking in !!!!
Thats why I was thinking of the airless sprayer can cover a wall in no time and keep a wet edge /wall
have had experience paint spraying cars in the past so know its important when spraying to keep it wet

Stop, sand down the walls (not back to plaster but just a smooth uniform appearance) apply 2 coats of a quality flat Matt of vinyl Matt.

The problem you describe is 9/10 due to application error. Your walls now have a texture to them from the offending coat. And unless you want to apply another 6 coats it's not likely to disappear without sorting out the substrate.

A basic airless will set you back £500, a professional set up starts at £1000 really. But in anycase it will not solve your problem.

In addition but a decent roller

Answer to your question is yes, many times
It produces a smooth finish if done correctly.....it produces a terrible finish if not....you say youve done automotive...then you will not have a problem...just move faster
Is this the answer?....in my opinion no....you should be able to sort this out with brush and roller
It may be worth buying a Purdy roller sleeve 9" colossus and decent brush..as it sounds like your application is the problem, stir the paint, dont over roll...about 1 meter square per dip, cut in first then roll
Airless spray is primarily an application method for speed.

K Decor
Im using Leyland super laytex
I always use it and find it great it is patchy when first applied especially magnolia its dark and patchy but when dry is about 2 shades lighter and flawless
I had a problem with a newly plastered chimney bast one time (oatmeal colour) you could see the plaster corner beads through the paint - they were well covered in plaster went on great when it dried could see the holes and lines like morse code up the wall - it spelt out - IM GOING TO KEEP COMING THROUGH SUCKER !!!
had to PVA it 3 times then it covered took 5 litres though !!!!!!
Think its coming back to get me !!!!!!!! :lol:
