The ABC's of Spray Finishing with Mitch Kohanek (Sat) July 30, 2022

about this workshop

This class is for those who are either thinking of getting into spraying or need improving their current spraying knowledge. Students will learn the fundamentals of spraying and what to know before purchasing spraying equipment. Turbines and compressed air are the two main air sources, but there are several spray guns to consider. What material one intends to spray is also important to the selection of equipment to matching the quality of what is trying to be achieved. Gun parts such as fluid needles, fluid nozzles and air caps have a direct relationship to the desired results. Spray gun maintenance will also be covered in detail. By the end of the day, students will be more confident on how to choose and use spraying equipment. Students are encouraged to bring their own spraying equipment.
