Default Spraying CWF

Hi All,
I have a Graco Magnum DX sprayer (Home Depot) and was wondering if I could spray the water based CWF-UV (Flood) with this sprayer. The maximun tip size (DX) is .15 and I notice alot of clear sealers reccommend a .17 min. tip for spraying clear finishes. I have a good size cedar deck to clear coat.
I have never used this sprayer for anything but interior latex finishes, which it is great for, for the amount of spraying I do, just not sure if it would work well with the CWF. Any thoughts?

I am sure you could, but there are way better things out there than CWF. If you can spray latex, you can spray clears. Latex int. usually recommends .17 tips.

Any recommendations?

" If you can spray latex, you can spray clears"

Is int latex thinner than the ext clears?

Don't quite understand your question about what am I trying to use it on.
As I mentioned I am going to be spraying a cedar deck.

opps, sorry didnt see that. just use the oil based stuff, and i would recommend just using the true oil based stuff on a deck. Why did you get a magnum anyways? (my first sprayer was the wagner paintcrew, but that was because the HO gave it to me)

You should still consider back brushing what you spray. Working the finish into the wood is your main goal and sometimes spraying will not accomplish this.

You should see the thread about the CWF Jason from Oregon had to strip! I would use an oil base product.

What is the "true oil based stuff" ?

As far as "why did I buy a magnum", thought I would try it out for the price and the amount of painting I do (minimal), and it works great for what I need it for. No complaints.

Looks like spraying a deck is not popular, huh? Why is that?

I have about 2000 sq. ft. of deck plus railings, spraying seems like the way to go. How would you guys approach it? I'm always willing to learn something new

Try a 9" paint pad. Went to it after too windy to spray and wish I would have started out with it.

2000 sq ft with a 9" paint pad, really? What about a garden sprayer, are those things any good?

WING, you use a pad? i have only had a blotchy experience with pads. what pads are you using and what are you using to get the stain on them?

I take it your not a painter....

Here's that link MAC-Deco suggested:

https://www.painttalk.com/showthread.php?t=2171

I am not using CWF.... the pics tell ya why. I'll be using a Natural (small amount of pigment) oil stain provided by Sherwin Williams their Deckscapes product. I am in the process of sanding that deck atm... It's been raining alot and I'll post pics of the finished product later...

lol Jason, I was trying to coax it out of him, you went straight to the punch. I would maybe consider spraying and BB the railings but not the deck boards. You would pretty much have to mask off all the house along them, big pain, plus inadequate penetration.

Play nice, Jason. If you read what I wrote you'll notice I said it works fine for what I need it for, when I need it.
No, I do not paint everyday, but I'll match my finished product with anyone, but not my knowledge of the paint and finishes.
I build, and I insist on no one painting my work but me. If I'm not sure of a finish I research it, check with manufacturer etc...
So happens, customer has 40 gals of CWF and wants me to use it. Do I think it's the best stuff out there? No, but then again, I don't know what the best stuff out there is. Instead of stating what doesn't work, lets hear what does.
Thanks for link, will check it out.

What exactly were you trying to "coax" out of me? Just ask if you want to know something, that's what I'm trying to do here, get information.

A garden sprayer can work nice ...esp on those spindle and rails, but you'll have to work the deck at the same time. Or you could get some staining mits and get some splinters. 9" lambskin pads on ext poles work great. You dont want to leave any puddles and make sure you cover everthing around and under the deck.
