Are you looking for that silky satin finish? Something that will withstand those high traffic areas, interior or exterior?
Then take a look at this lift the lid video with Ian on Caparol PU-Satin.
Each week on Spraying Makes Sense Live we run a spotlight on anything spray-related. This week in the spotlight was the 3M PPS system. Ian talks about the 170ml mini cups which were a typical internet purchase! From the photo, he was sure these were the standard 650ml cups but when they turned up he realised his mistake lol. However, he has since found that they are perfect for his kitchen sample boards as they hold a small amount of paint.
The Graco 695 Standard and the Graco 695 ProContractors are some serious work horses as Josh from SprayDirect would say. The 695 unit is near the top end of Graco’s electric airless range. While both have a lot of features and specifications that are very similar, in this video we take a look in detail their differences along side what comes with ordering one of these impressive machines.
We were really lucky to get a full set of the smoothing blades sent from Graco for us to have a play with which was awesome. We will be playing with these more on site and on training courses so keep your eyes and ears peeled!
We run through all the sizes of skimming blades that are available along with the spats/joint knives in this video but there are a couple of sets that you can buy with the brilliant carry case from most UK distributors.

What is an apprentice?
Apprentices are aged 16 or over and combine working with studying to gain skills and knowledge in a specific job.
Apprentices can be new or current employees.
You can get government funding to cover some of the cost of training and assessing an apprentice if you’re in England. You must pay the apprentice at least the minimum wage.
Here at Paint Tech Academy we’re always here to help, one of the most common mistakes we get asked about is…
Why is there paint spurting out the side of the gun?
This will be because of the tip seat, it may not have been fitted correctly or is missing. So to help you out we have made a short video on what to look for and how to fix the seat correctly.
