I am about to do the trim work on my new home. We have decided on
Benjamin Moore Regal Latex primer and paint. I have experimented with
it on a few pieces using a brush. Works well and looks great.
However, I need to do a lot of pieces and want to use my HVLP
conversion spray gun. I have sprayed waterborne lacquer with no
problems. However, this paint is very thick. The retailer suggested
Floetrol. I tried it and the Floetrol does not change my viscosity
cup readings - even at 1 qt/gallon of paint.
Benjamin Moore says to use their "518 Extender" product. However,
their literature only mentions airless sprayers.
Has anybody out there been successful with this product (paint and
thinner) using an HVLP
gun?? Any suggestions on technique etc...
