The chilly air causes the paint to get thicker and take forever to dry properly. In the coming of winter, some regions such as northern Europe, Russia, Canada, etc., painting with an airless sprayer in cold weather can be challenging. No matter how carefully you spray, you end up with uneven coats, drips, and brush marks as you try in vain to spread the thickened paint smoothly. Does this mean you need to put off all your exterior painting projects until spring? Follow these tips and tricks from RONGPENG.
The first step is choosing a paint formulated for cold weather use. Look for paints labeled for use in temperatures as low as 35-50°F. These paints contain resins and solvents that remain flexible even when temperatures drop, so the paint film won't get brittle and crack. Using the wrong paint will likely lead to poor adhesion, uneven coating, and other problems. Latex paints are generally fine down to about 50°F, but below that you'll want a specially formulated cold weather acrylic. Oil-based paints are also more cold weather tolerant than latex. Mix the paint beforehand and keep cans warm until use.
Slow drying in cold temperatures can lead to problems like poor adhesion or lingering odors. Allow for extended recoat windows between coats. Follow RONGPENG’s recommendations, Allow for much longer drying times. Paint may take twice as long or longer to fully cure in colder temperatures. Don't rush to handle or recoating painted surfaces before the coat has fully cured. and test a small area before recoating large sections. For multi-day projects, it's best to wait for warmer temperatures before applying final coats.
