So am I missing something?....
So I finally bought a viscosity cup to help get better/more consistent results thinning my latex paint to shoot it through my Woodriver Pro HVLP sprayer.
Lots of forums I read say to thin the paint by roughly 10%, or that the viscosity cup should be 120secs or less (give or take)....
I put a little bit of Floetrol in the paint, and then thinned it with water by about 5-10%. It only took the paint 48 seconds to empty from the viscosity cup.
Based on the number (48 seconds) it seems like its thinned pretty well. However, it seems way thicker than what I HAVE been putting in my gun with great results. With a 2.0 needle, my gun would not spray this very nicely – its too thick
Can anyone shed some light on this subject for me? Is it okay that the paint flows through the viscosity cup within 50 seconds?
Maybe I’m over thinking it. haha
