Using a electric HVLP sprayer for SilverTip Yacht Primer (high build)

Post by Capt UB » Tue Oct 31, 2017 2:48 pm

I do not want to setup a Air Compressor and related equipment! Question 1: Do you OWN or have you used a ELECTRIC HVLP SPARYER?

Question 2: Will a electric HVLP sprayer spary SilverTip Yacht Primer (high build)?

I do not want to setup a Air Compressor and related equipment! I don't have the space or the need.

1. I do own an HVLP sprayer, and it should do a fine job of spraying that primer, but it isn't needed- just use a roller and you'll get good results.

I was thinking of using it for the top coat too. I was told spraying gives a much better finish. I am spending the time to fair the hull.

Agree with Pee Wee, Roll & Tip it, that will get you very good results with a lot less work with sprayers!! I am sure you can spray the yacht primer but I don't know anyone that has done it!! Jeff

Didn't Eric1 or Narfi spray S3 primer and it was ... not a good idea? Must have been Narfi, since I recall it being a smaller boat. and it was right side up.

Roll and tip the primer for sure, in fact you may not even have to tip it. The S3 is pretty thick to spray unless you thin it, which to me counters the whole concept of a high build primer? You are going to sand it before the top coat anyway...

Spraying the top coat is a whole 'nother conversation and will be best answered when you have decided on a product. Lots of fabulous finishes here (not mine :help: ) so keep asking the questions.

I just had a learning curve.... I plan to spray it again on my fs17.

On my CS I sprayed everything, Highbuild, Primer and Finish, used different guns with different nozzles, but all with compressed air (small compressor)
Edit off course not the anti fauling.
