Applying Super Therm® with an airless sprayer

The following is a guide

Super Therm® application instructions

Changes in pressures and tip sizes may by needed for proper spray characteristics. Any reduction must be compatible with the existing environmental and application conditions. Refer to product application instructions for detailed application information.

Super Therm® can be applied by brush, roller or spray, however, the preferred method is by air or airless sprayer. It should never be applied directly over rust, nor should it ever be diluted or thinned.

Super Therm®* Airless .029” – .033”

Graco or Binks – 10 horse power (Model 10000 pumps 2.5 gal/min at 3000 psi)
*Remove filters from spray equipment and spray guns before spraying coatings containing ceramics

On the attached sheet (pdf) it states for applying Super Therm® the tip size is 029” to 033”. We have used 025” (525 tip and fan) and as low as 521” this depends on the area the coatings needs to be applied.

To achieve proper thickness, temperature and humidity must be considered by the applicator.

Note: The number of application and the thickness of each should be in accordance with the job specifications.

Note: All filters should be removed from both the gun handle and spray machine prior to application, as they will trap the ceramics.

Note: Temperatures must always be a minimum of 5° above the due point during application.

Note: If Super Therm® is applied during a period of extremely high humidity or if there is rain soon after the application, bubbles may appear on the surface. Do not puncture these bubbles. This is normal and the coating will continue to cure with no effect on the performance or appearance of the coating. Bubbles will dry down tight and disappear without a trace or imprint.

Note: Roofs with corrugations

  • 2″ corrugation = roof size x 135%
  • 2.5″ corrugation = roof size x 145%
  • 3″ corrugation = roof size x 160%

Working as a team

When working on a roof we recommend using 3 people on site. 1st person on the gun doing the spraying, 2nd person holding the hose to take the weight of the 1st person and the 3rd person to mix the coating and look after the spray unit.
