Need to spray popcorn with a hopper. I'm familiar only with polystyrene aggregate. I've seen two local retailers that carry a medium spray texture that says it has perlite instead of polystyrene. Two brands of this that I've seen are very unclear on method of application, and the polystyrene coarse texture has the same unclear instructions(which I know how to spray).
No samples available. Whats this perlite based texture and can it be sprayed like popcorn with a hopper? Does it look alot different or is it a new substitute? I can only assume since perlite is basically sand that it would be very thin and hard to control.
Very confusing. Anyone not paying attention and wanting a medium popcorn ceiling could be buying the wrong stuff as the bags are nearlly identical. Brand names in question are Synko and ProFin.
Synko Snow-Tex - Coarse polystyrene
Synko Ruff-Tex - Medium perlite
Profin doesn't specify a particular "model", just medium or coarse.
I thought there was medium polystyrene out there!!
Not really familiar with the perlite either. Have you called an actual drywall supply or are you just looking at HD, Lowes, etc.??? I'm pretty sure the perlite would be sprayed with a hopper too. Maybe go to the mfgr.'s web site.......
