Equipment Checklist

Nansulate® coatings can be applied with standard paint spray and texture spray equipment. Equipment size and performance varies widely, so it is our intention to provide the following recommendations for various sizes of equipment which may be used for the coatings, in addition to other important items to ensure proper application. 1. Airless or H.V.L.P. sprayer to apply Nansulate® Translucent Coatings (all coatings except for Nansulate® EPX) a) Recommended: Graco Silver Gun, 395, Titan 440i (or similar) Wagner/Spraytech hand held sprayers are suitable for small areas. b) Wagner Project Pro 115, or Paint Crew c) Graco Minimax-battery operated is also suitable.
(example: Wagner Project Pro 115) (example: Titan 440i)

Tips & Extensions for Airless Sprayers: You will need various tip fan sizes; such as 2, 4, 8 inch, and 0.011-0.013 tip. Tip extensions are rod-like attachments which are attached in between the sprayer gun and the spray tip so that one can reach long distances where human arm reach is not possible. Tip extensions come in 12, 24, 36, 48 inch sizes. Having one or more of each size is recommended. We recommend having a supply of additional tips and accessories on hand, so that work is not stopped due to clogged parts. 2. Texture sprayer to apply Nansulate® EPX a) Recommended: Graco TexSpray RTX 650, 900, 1250 or 1500 Others that are suitable include: b) Graco Hopper Gun c) Wagner Powertex
