Peelable Paint Booth Coating: Peel Coat for Spray Booth Maintenance


– Alright, today we’re gonna be covering paint booth wall coating. Wall coating for paint booths is designed to do two things for you. It’s to help protect the
under, the galvanized metal of your paint booth from
excessive over spray and then it helps brighten
up the booth a little due to the white
appearance of the material. There are two types that,
kind of, are available, one’s meant for bare wall
booths and one is meant for booths with over spray. Generally we think you get better results when you’re able to start
with a clean booth wall, so if you’ve just purchased a booth, you may wanna consider booth coating, if your booth does have over spray on it and you can get that cleaned off, we’d recommend doing that and going with a paint booth wall coating that’s designed for clean walls. So, we’ll show you what it looks like to take down the wall coating. It’s a peelable coating
that just requires you to score along the top edge and then it pretty much
will come off in a sheet. And as you see, once I made the cut, it’s pretty easy to pull down in a film and the benefit is, you have
clean walls, you can see, we have here overuse, that you’ve got a lot
of over spray buildup. So, go ahead and tear
this down and then we’ll apply some new booth
coatings so you can see what it’s like when it’s clean. Alright so we tore off
the old booth coating, we’re gonna go ahead and
show you how to apply a new coating, you need
about a three to five mil thick layer of the coating when it’s dry. It’s around four or five wet. It just sprays on with a regular airless, you do tend to wanna do this in a couple coats at a time, but it’s relatively easy to spray, it’s similar to
a latex in consistency. And as you can see from
what we’ve started, it gives you a lot of
brightness to the booth. So, we’ll go ahead and
spray the rest of this. I use about a 17,000s
tip and then once you get the booth coated, we’ll show you what it looks like finished as you saw, it was very, pretty simple to tear off, it comes off in sheets,
took us about 20 minutes to tear down this whole
booth from the original, so. (paint spraying) Alright, so we went ahead
and applied the booth coat. You do wanna apply it in
thin coats, there’s a little bit of runs, it’s a little
hard if you aren’t doing it real, keep slow and steady
as far as couple coats, instead of one at a time. But as you can see,
it’s very white in here and it does improve visibility
overall in the booth because of the white reflective coating. And then like we showed
you, it’s easy to peel off. So this is the booth coat, it
covers around 280 square feet for a five gallon bucket. So if you’re trying to
do a complete booth, you’d take the square
footage of your booth, the walls, the ceilings and everything and then you would find the right amount that you need to cover the booth. And this is what it looks like, it does, it keeps your walls from
over spray and overall it just will keep your
booth in a newer condition long term plus if you have
excessive over spray buildup, sometimes that’s considered a fire hazard and a source of ignition. So it prevents that from being an issue. So that’s what booth coating is, if you have questions or comments on it leave it in the comments below.
