At Ridgeway we have over 45 years experience in paint spraying and pumping, with Graco being our primary supplier.

Why Spray?

Speed:– Spraying is faster meaning more work can be completed in less time using less labour. It can be up to 5 times faster than brushing or rolling.
Quality:- Spraying produces an even coat of paint leaving a high quality finish. Can be sprayed on to all types of surfaces.
Versatility:- Spraying can be used for a wide range of coating materials which includes protective coatings to high quality cosmetic finishes.

Plural Component Mixing

This is a method which automatically proportions two or more component paint materials for spraying.

Benefits:

Improved durability:- Plural component mixing will withstand abusive conditions better than other paints.
Better Chemical Resistance:- Plural component mixing will withstand chemical exposure better than other paints.
Increased flexibility:- Plural component mixing is less likely to crack on plastic substrates when impacted (polyurethanes)
Lower energy cure:- Ovens can be run at lower temperatures when using plural component spraying.
Faster cure times: Plural component mixing allows for the paint to cure faster
Reduces VOC’s:- Plural component mixing has a lower Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)

Hand Mixing vs Plural Component Mixing

Hand Mixing:

Wasted Material:- Whatever is not sprayed after material becomes too thick
Ratio Accuracy:- Limited to operator’s ability when hand mixing
Ratio Assurance:- Hand mixing has no ratio assurance and you can find bad parts when they don’t cure
