I'm Bob from Kellsport Products. We have received several calls from Tacomaworld members so I thought I'd just stop in, say hello, and talk a bit about Fluid Film undercoating guns. We have had a ton of experience spraying Fluid Film over the past 8 years, and we supply Fluid Film to undercoating applicator locations all over the country. Fluid Film "NAS" formula can be a bit tricky when it comes to spray guns because the viscosity changes so rapidly. Fluid Film is thixotropic, which means it will get thicker as it sits, yet thin out immediately when shaken or stirred.
Below are a couple tips for spraying Fluid Film.
a) Store at room temp.
b) Stir or shake really well before you transfer
into the gun cannister or container. Shake again before you spray.
c) There is no need to thin Fluid Film. To add another product to thin out Fluid Film will only make it less resistant to washoff. Stirring Fluid Film is more than adequate to make it easily sprayable.
Most standard spray guns will work with Fluid Film and get the job done. Some better than others. If you have a gun, give it a try.. it may work fine. We find that 60-80 psi works well, but every compressor output is different and you just need to find what works best. Personally, I put a small regulator on the gun end, and find that about 100 psi works great for me.
Over the years we have had dozens of guns that we tested and supplied to dealers. We have narrowed it down to (2) guns that have been modified by the manufacturer's to work specifically with Fluid Film NAS.
We feel that these spray guns have been "tweaked" as much as possible to get the best possible solution for Fluid Film applications. You can check them out at the link below:
