What Can I Do with a Graco Coating Pump?

Graco has been an industry leader in protective coatings sprayers for over 30 years because it offers a broad selection of reliable, durable sprayers at an incredible value. With a strong reputation for lifetime value, durability, high-pressure performance, and quality results,

Graco coating pumps are used widely in roof coatings, fireproofing, waterproofing, painting, and other interior and exterior construction applications. When you use Graco spray pumps you save time and money because you spend less time on repairs and correcting application mistakes. These are some of the top applications for Graco coating pumps.

Expand Your Range of Applications

Graco spray pumps can handle a wide range of materials such as paint, epoxies and primers. Some models can even handle 100% solids and solvent-free coatings. In particular, the GH-933 can reach a 7,200 PSI max and can spray difficult-to-atomize materials like silicon and intumescents. This is a list of materials that a typical coating machine in Graco’s GH series can apply:

  • Acrylics, Block Filler, Coal Tar, Contact Cement, Elastomerics, Enamel, Epoxies, Fibered Aluminum Emulsion, Fibered Asphalt Emulsion, Mastics, Non-Fibered Aluminum Emulsion, Non-Fibered Asphalt Emulsion, Paint, Polyester, Polyurethane, Primer, Texture Mud, and Waterproofing materials.

Paint and Prime Like a Pro

If you have ever painted a room or building exterior by hand, you know how tedious it is to reapply paint or primer, roll, and repeat. But when you use a Graco spray pump, the process is much faster. Painting professionals agree that one pass with an airless hydraulic sprayer is equal to three to four passes with a traditional paint roller. Ultimately, it takes about ¼ of the time to paint a room with a Graco coating pump compared to using a hand roller.

When you figure that time equals money, you can cover far more square feet with a Graco spray pump compared to traditional methods. Also, the evenly applied droplets that come out of the spray head create a smooth surface that can be more difficult to achieve when doing things by hand.

According to Frost & Sullivan, Graco is the highest-rated brand of paint sprayers, and it is preferred 7 to 1 over a sprayer of a different brand. So, if you want even better results than that of a typical sprayer, use equipment that will guarantee professional paint results.

You Can Apply Many Other Materials Quickly, Too

Graco spray pumps are not just big in painting but are also useful in countless other applications related to commercial and residential construction. Whether you need to seal bricks with block fillers, apply fibered asphalt emulsion to a roof or apply elastomerics and primers, a Graco sprayer will cover much more ground than any manual effort. Also, many of these materials would be difficult or impossible to apply without a machine.

The even and steady spray of a Graco spray pump produces a smooth application for impressive results— every time. This assurance of quality and speed is good for your bottom line, ensuring that you can earn more in less time.

You Can Do Pro-Level Commercial Roofing

When you need to apply roof coatings, using a gas hydraulic airless sprayer is the most efficient method. Commercial roofs often require elastomeric coatings that require higher pressures and flow rates. Graco produces many types of sprayers that can reach and exceed the minimum pressure and flow rate required for these types of coatings.

For instance, the GMAX II 7900 has become an industry standard for spraying elastomerics and other residential and commercial coatings. It belongs to the GMAX II product line which is known for its ability to handle heavier coatings, having the largest range of tip sizes, and handling long hose lengths. Since it is portable and easy to maintain and designed to detect problems like low oil levels, it is a convenient option for roofers.

Sprayers like the GH-733, GH-833, and GH-933 are similar in the range of materials they can handle, which makes them ideal for contractors who work in diverse markets. For example, if you need to apply coal tar as a base, these machines can do it effectively. They can also apply non-fibered aluminum or asphalt emulsions that are often used in roofing projects.
