I would imagine you should be able to get away with the 1.5mm tip. I certainly don’t want to second guess Earlex’s technical department but it might be worth trying to thin even more, down to my previous recommendation. All you will be out is a little time and some thinner if it doesn’t work.

I don’t have much experience with high build lacquer, but the high solids count could certainly have a big affect on the viscosity and the “sprayability” of the mix. Unless you have a specific need for high build, it might be best to stick with your regular formulations in the future. Good luck and keep us posted.
