Paints & Primers
ECOS Paints & Primers* can be sprayed using an airless sprayer. Please refer to the specific product application instructions for proper tip size and pressure settings.
*The Universal Primer and Stain Blocking Primer are thick products which cannot be sprayed. Wood Primer is an appropriate consistency but is better applied by a brush since it is usually trim, or profiled doors.
Stain & Varnish
A fine finishing HVLP sprayer in conjunction with a paint compressor is recommended for ECOS water-based stains and varnishes. We do not recommend an electric HVLP sprayer or thinning the product. The nozzle should be set to the finest finish setting.
Note - The HVLP sprayer is only recommended for our stains and varnishes and is NOT recommended for our paints.
Tips & Tricks
- If you are experiencing paint spattering there may be debris in the tip. Reversible tips may be flipped and sprayed to clean them. Splatters may be rolled out with a roller if necessary.
- We do not recommend thinning or adding water to our products when using sprayers.
