I have used BIN with great success brushing and aerosol cans….need to spray some cabinets in a rental unit….
my question is ….Do I need to thin….if so what do I use to thin ….Can I leave BIN in the gun for several hours so I can spray fronts and back in one outing….also what is your method of clean up….I will be spraying through an Earlex 6900 with a 1.5 tip….I have a 2.0 tip if needed….Thank you for your input

We must be thinking the same thing…I just sprayed BIN primer straight out of the can (no thinning) yesterday, using my HF HVLP. I switched to the 1.5mm tip. It sprayed beautifully and leveled itself off. I did use the viscosity cup and found that out of the can, it was a lower viscosity than the Rockler instructions recommended. That’s why I switched to the smaller needle and gradually opened up the fluid control until I got a good stream on cardboard.

Not sure how different (better, easier, pleasant) it would be on the Earlex, but I’d imagine you’ll have no trouble like me. That HF gun bleeds like crazy…

Thanks for the reply….did you use a compressor driven gun or turbine…. any tips on cleaning….did you use an ammonia and water solution if so what was the mixture or did you use mineral sprits….This is what I cant find out …..I surely don’t want to ruin my gun…..glad your results were good….I like BIN and want to start using it more often….but their is a learning curve over water based…..since that’s all I have ever sprayed….thanks for your input….and would like to hear from others….any little bit of advice would help…

Bin sprays well and doesn’t need thinned. Denatured alcohol to clean up. mineral spirits won’t work. it cleans up just like any other product but with the denatured alcohol.

It’s the HF turbine driven HVLP. For cleanup, denatured alcohol is the answer.
