What Equipment to Spray Cabots Solid Stain


What type of sprayer do I need to get to spray Cabots Solid Acrylic Stain? This stuff is as thick as paint and I have a lot of fence. Any suggestions?

At the minimum side a 3000psi sprayer that will pump at least .25gpm will work with a 515 tip, no thinning needed. We have several airless sprayers and have used an airless that small numerous times for cabot solid stain with no problems spraying it.

What Equipment to Spray Cabots Solid Stain


Good advice, housepaintinguy. Also, may I suggest to back brush your solid oil stain, after you spray a few boards at a time. The company recommends it AND from personal experience, it eliminates flashing. Otherwise, well, I hope you don't mind flashing. Be sure to apply ONE COAT ONLY, and to use a china (natural) bristle brush. If you over-apply this product, it will PEEL when it fails. If you do it right, it will just fade away.
