    undercoat guns works for spraying and I found a oval shaped nozzle from a gas power washer that fits in gun works even better , nice smooth coating without the thick splatter.

    I don't think it will work properly. I don't think you will be able to get the proper atomization in a pump-type sprayer.

    :help: man..I had look that one up Dan ;)

    Atomization

    is conversion of bulk liquid into a spray or mist (i.e. collection of drops), often by passing the liquid through a nozzle. Despite the name, it does not imply that the particles are reduced to atomic sizes.
    An atomizer is an atomization apparatus; carburetors, airbrushes, misters, and spray bottles are only a few examples of atomizers used ubiquitously. In internal combustion engines, fine-grained fuel atomization is instrumental to efficient combustion.
    In some manufacturing process, one may produce a fine powder by spraying molten or dissolved materials through an atomizer and solidifying the droplets.

    ubiquitous
    1. Existing, found or seeming to be found everywhere at the same time; omnipresent.
    Thesaurus: everywhere, ever-present, omnipresent, pervasive, universal, global, common; Antonym: rare, usual.

    once the spray can fluid film is applied how long does it take to dry? I put it on my plow and now they are predicitn snow for tomorrow. It has been on for about 6 hours, the temp is about 50 in the shop. Thanks

    Fluid Film never dries. That is one of its best properties. As long as there is a film, it is still protecting. You could rub Fluid Film in like a wax to keep it from coming off on your hands and clothes if you liked, but that would shorten its duration.

    Any paint-type sprayer will spray Fluid Film. I've heard good things about the use of Wagner sprayers.

    Thanks for looking up the term, killer. :D

    Got to use my plow with the "still wet" look and I am so impressed. The snow didn't stick like it used to and it actually pushed easier. Got my decals today and will be putting them on as soon as it warms up. Fluid Film has performed beyond all my expectations. Thanks.
    Wish I would have filmed a before and after Fluid Film treatment.
