Tub And Tile Paint For Sprayer

I am looking for a quality brand paint that will work to put in my Wagner air sprayer. This is for the glaze on the inside of a claw foot tub, as well as the paint on the outside. Please give me any other kinds of tips and tricks to help out. Thank You!

Re: Tub And Tile Paint For Sprayer

You wont find any for wagner. Your wagner is more than likely an "airless" sprayer. You need an hvlp style sprayer.

You ready to spend some serious coin?

Try Amerlock 2 from PPG. $150/GAL got part a and b and $70 for the thinner. $370 minimum.

Hope you have a good respirator too, because your body does NOT process epoxy based paints. In short, once it is inside you it's there for life. Side note: it CAN be absorbed through mucous membranes (your eyeballs)

Hire a pro before you kill yourself.

Yea the Wagner wont get it done. The Home Depot DIY epoxy kits are junk. Consider either talking to a Sherwin Williams paint rep on a quality Armorseal product for your application or take the tub to a pro.
I will second the cost of quality epoxy paints, minimum is $100 + / gallon and the kits are two component, thinners are $50 - $70.

I just put on two gallons of epoxy yesterday and spent $320.

Is taking the tub to someone an option? how about having a pro come to you? Sometimes you have to know your limitations and when to hire someone.

We use MacroPoxy 646 alot. It's a polyamine epoxy. It shouldn't have a problem sticking to tile. But it doesn't self level very well.
