That’s why you should clear up the following subjects in a consultation:

  • Used putty – there are different kinds of putty on the market, thicker and thinner ones, depending on the application. Most of the putty’s can be sprayed flawlessly with the 535 nozzle. Thicker putty’s need bigger nozzles. Depending on the thickness of the putty, there is also more capacity per minute needed and a more powerful spraying machine should be chosen.
  • Project size – is it all about small apartments, houses or big projects like hotels, hospitals or industrial buildings? The strain, performance per litre and features of the spraying machine should be bigger when doing large projects. That’s why the performance and features of the spraying machine need to be adjusted to the project size.
  • Frequency of usage – if the spraying machine is frequently used, the strain on the machine is bigger and a more powerful machine should be considered.
  • Also paint? – Should paint, primer and industrial glues also be sprayed with the Airless machine? The choice of machine should be adjusted to your needs and additional equipment for paint must be acquired (tube, spraying gun, filter, nozzle).
  • Weight – Are you alone on the construction site? Does the spraying machine have to be transported a lot without an elevator? If so, the weight should play an important role while picking a spraying machine
  • Costs – Even though the profitability is big, when it comes to performance per square meter and saved working hours, the price of different models should be considered. You should take a look at quality, performance, durability, services and guarantees.
