How to acheive high quality spray finish ?

How we acheive high quality spray finish? What paint to use for spraying MDF? How long does it takes to dry? How many coats of paint needs smooth spray furniture finish?

See how to spray furniture by following  3 steps:

 

1. Wood preparation:

This process include filling  cracks, gaps, scratches, edges and all defects in the wood.

We apply 2 coats of wood filler on all required areas and sanding with fine paper to prepare surface for basecoat.

This step is very important as spray finish especially satin and gloss effect will show up all imperfections after spraying top coat lacquer.

2. Spraying basecoat

Depends on type of used paint the surface needs few coats of basecoat before the top finishing colour.

We always apply minimum 2-3 coats of thick white basecoat.

3. Spraying top coat

Before spraying final top coat the area and surface must be spotless clean and free of dust.

If the works are carried on site it’s a good idea to keep the door closed for the time of paint  spraying,

Matt and satin finishes doesn’t need any finishing after spraying final lacquer however high gloss finishes require additional wet and dry polishing process.

This is example of 20% sheen RAL 7016
