Equipment capable of spraying Liquid Rubber

Pump ModelMax.
Graco GH7333500 psi3.0 gpm 1/2 inch150 feet
Graco GH364036000 psi3.8 gpm 1/2 inch150 feet
GunShould be rated for spraying mastics. A 30-40 inch tip extension is recommended
Tip Size .017 to .021 with a 12 inch fan width

Note: Do not use a “whip” between hose and gun. This reduces flow and pressure which results in poor atomization.

Thinning Liquid Rubber

The “as shipped” viscosity of Liquid Rubber is 34-37,000 cp which is too high for spraying. By adding one gallon of Xylene Solvent to a 5 gallon pail the viscosity drops to 10,000 cp at 75° F. More solvent may have to be added at lower temperatures.

The spray atomization can be improved using a smaller tip size or adding more solvent to reduce viscosity.

Wash solvent from previous pump cleaning can be used for thinning after it is strained to remove dirt.
