Kremlin tip selection for waterborne Chemcraft?4/19
I am fairly new to Kremlin system and picked up a new 15-C25, we shoot all waterbase, but I am having trouble finding info on tip selection for the excite gun and recommended pressures and atomization air guides? Photos show Chemcraft Auqaprime with 14-092 tip spaying at 40psi and 35-40 air I feel like this is high? Getting tails close to this range. The aquaprime is 25-30 sec @ 25*C for Zahn #2 cup. is there a better tip or what am i doing wrong??
you should be using tips with the pre atomizing orfice/fine finish tips or what kremlin specifies as Xtra.
your pressure ranges seem about right for waterborne..... usually 30-45 psi fluid and up to 30 psi air atomizing.
Ok thanks, had seen those we'll try that
The tip you need is the 06-132 extra fine finish.
If he sprays chemcraft waterbased primer through an 06 tip it will clog instantly..... I could see that being ok with some waterborne topcoats in general depending on the viscosity of the product but that's a ton of fluid pressure coming through a tiny orfice on materials that are already very sheer sensitive.... Looks like a recipe for microbubbles to me....
I like Shane's response. Sheering will also effect the sheen level. 06 tip is not the answer. But, a tip is only 45.00 dollars!, try it out!
We are getting some new tips on Shanes advice, but $45 is a deal. We pay $125-130 for tips so... that is CAD but cash is cash!!
I agree that the thought is it will not work. But it is the right method for ICA products.
What ICA products are you spraying?
I spray 20deg mono/ bi component clear.
Sounds interesting, we are out of Northern Ontario, about 4 hours north of Toronto. Though moving forward I dont think this is the best place to carry out business, thanks for the info
