    I would like to know too. I bought a small pressurized air gun sprayer "thingy" and straight FF will not spray, it only comes out in a stream. I guess I need to dilute it with thinner or veg. oil to get it to spray out.

    i bought a cheapo paint sprayer from home depot last year $48.00 the ff has always been warm when ive applied it ( room temp...) and i have never ever had a problem with it spraying out at 90 psi...

    Wasn't thinking that folks may not have an air compressor. I'd give it up my first born before my air tools. Get an air compressor, haha. It seems as though there hasn't been much luck with electric sprayers and FF.......

    Heat the FF first, it can only help, just stick the can in the oven...

    my buddy has one of those.. POS imo... my 48 dollar sprayer does a 10x better job and uses a lot less FF to boot... atomizes it way better... i spray and im done. he sprays it comes out in huge snot bubbles and then he has to spread it with a paper towel....like everything else in this world, you get what you pay for... theres a reason it's $28...

    Northern,

    Please let us know if you have the model # of the Wagner as there are several kinds.

    Thanks

    Fluid Film is about the same viscosity as a latex house paint, so anything that would spray that would spray Fluid Film.
