Importance of Temperature Control In Your Paint Projects

In order to achieve a high-quality finish during our spray painting projects, temperature control is essential. External factors, particularly temperature, play a major role in how sufficiently paint flows out of the sprayer. At Spray Finishes, we are experts in all paint spraying projects and wanted to inform you on the importance of monitoring temperature control during a spray painting job.

Too Cold?

Think about what happens to liquids in the cold weather – they begin to turn solid. The same goes for paint. In the colder weather, paint tends to congeal and become thicker. With a thicker viscosity, the paint will not flow as freely out of the sprayer. This sort of paint interference will drastically change the outcome of the project. The end result will take much longer to coat and the paint is unlikely to set evenly.

Too Hot?

On the other hand, when paint is too warm it flows too easily. This causes more paint to flow through the pump than is desired. As a result, paint is wasted and a larger clean-up is needed. If it’s too hot, the paint will also begin to dry before it reaches the surface, and it will end up with a peeling, uneven look.

Best Practices for Temperature Control

The average required temperature to cure paint is between 65 and 70 degrees, but should be no less than 55 degrees. However, no two coatings are alike. Spray Finishes ensures we take into account the surrounding humidity, the type of coating, and our type of paint before setting our quality temperature control. Maintaining a 40-50% humidity in the area one intends to spray paint in is key. We do not recommend spraying paint in hot or humid weather.

Leaving a major spray painting project to the experts is almost always the wisest decision. The professionals at Spray Finishes are long-time experts in this field of painting. We’ve become skilled at maintaining proper temperature control, always bringing beautifully coated finishes.
