Spattering

Back to interior problems...
A spray of paint droplets from the roller cover as the paint is being applied.

Spattering probable causes - economy roller covers will generally spatter more. Overloading the roller cover. Over spreading the paint. Selecting an improper roller cover and nap length for the paint type being applied.

Spattering solutions - use high quality paint and roller covers with proper resiliency to minimize spattering. Avoid overloading the roller cover. Begin with an upward zigzag stroke in a "M" or "W" pattern and fill in the patter with parallel strokes without leaving the surface.

Primers and Interior Finishes - Priming is essential for better adhesion, sheen uniformity, mildew control and durability. Ask your Muralo dealer for the best Muralo interior paint for your project, in the color and sheen of your choice.
