Anyone sprayed SPI Universal Clear with Turbine Gun?

Tried SEARCH function without luck.

Want to spray SPI Universal Clear over waterborne basecoat.

Have a FUJI Mini-Mite 4 Turbine setup with the gravity feed gun and 0.8, 1.0, 1.3 and 1.4 tips.

Anyone have any experiences (good or bad) shooting SPI Universal with a turbine setup?

Any recommendations, comments or advice would be GREATLY appreciated.

Thanx,

Tom

Call SPI's tech line. Leave a message if you don't get him.

Even on holidays and weekends Berry will often get back to you.

He is the owner... chemist... and "tech guy".

....and very nice to work with! :-)

the only draw back is the turbin creates heat so use a slow acc to help with dry spots and flow.

X2 on that!!

I have talked with Barry several times over the years, even on Sunday! That, together with his replys and comments here on the Forum, makes me wonder if he ever sleeps!!

I was sorta' hoping to get some "hands-on" feedback from an end user. Not that I don't have complete confidence in Barry. He hasn't steered me wrong yet.

I also have an IWATA LPH400 with a 1.4 tip and a quite capable compressor and air drying setup that I can use. The FUJI just spayed sooooo nice with the Auto Color White sealer and White Pearl Base using the 1.0 and 0.8 tips, that I just wanted to give it a try - recognizing that "Shine" is spot on about the heat and also that the SPI is significantly heavier/thicker than the AC.

Still welcome any and all comments.

Thanx,

Tom
