Tips for spraying matte and satin clears?
I’m spraying small objects like helmets and have no issues with 2k show clear gloss finishes. But when I spray matte or satin clear I’m hitting a little bit of a learning curve... if I lay it on wet like I do my gloss clear, it stacks up too much and will become kinda glossy. If I lay it on too little, then it ends up looking matte, but also having a dry spray like texture.. trying to find a middle ground gets me in the middle... lol. I end up having little patches where it looks glossier then other areas... wondering what is the proper way to spray matte and satin clears.
Just want to put it out there that I’m using specialist paints, paints and clears, so they are of course compatible with each other.
I’m using an Iwata lph80 at 14psi and a 1.0 fluid tip for my clears. I also have a 1.2, .6 and .8 fluid tip as well if you think switching it up to any of those would help. I also have a sata minijet 4400b HVLP gun with a 1.0 tip... I use that gun for my paints, but can use it for clear too if you think it would do better than the Iwata. But I like the Iwata because of the low psi, it produces a lot less overspray and moves less air, which results in less dust and debris getting into the clear.
Thanks in advance.
