Tips and Advice
Skip's Tips | Applying Dry Fog



Dry fog paints are formulated so that the overspray lands as a dry dust after an 8 - 10 foot fall if the temperature is 70° F (20° C). When the temperature is cool, say 50° F (10° C), the dry is slowed and the overspray particles are dry on the outside and wet in the middle.

Pulling equipment or walking through the overspray when conditions are cool can cause the particles to break open and the paint will stick to the floor. When using dry fog in hot weather the dry time is accelerated.

Care must be taken that the paint being applied lands wet on the surface being painted, to ensure good adhesion. Dry fog paints dry quickly, and if the paint is partially dry when it hits the surface being painted, poor adhesion will result.
