Same effect like running a shop vac on concrete. Is the sprayer sitting on concrete in the same room? Can place cardboard under it or move sprayer to outside the room.

Sprayer is sitting on one layer of white floor masking paper.

Sorry Dean that was meant to be a question, forgot the ?. Is it the same effect like running a shop vac on concrete?

I run into static on concrete floors in new homes fairly bad with both the sprayer and shop vac. If you are sweeping the floor with the vac on concrete the dust sticks to you, the hose, the vac but if you lift the vac off the floor for a second it stops so this is how I came to putting cardboard under both.

I think you would know if its static or simply overspray.

Material flowing through the hose has always caused static when I am spraying in the proper environment.

Ouch!

Vaseline is one of the best options, but you'll end up looking like Sir Ranulph Fiennes, especially on your eyelashes. You'll look like you got Stalegtites hanging off 'em.
It's making my eyes water just thinking about it!


Can't say I've encountered static to that extent.

Static buildup in spray booth As in electrical or how paint hang in the air. I have seen pumps put out a lot of static ele. Most likely a bad hose not grounding it self. If it is paint in the air did you leave a way for the air to come in? A good booth will turn the air every few minutes if I remember right. are they metal chairs if so ground them and take avantage if the ele.

I can feel my hair load with static and when I am spraying and my hand comes close to the chairs, I feel static between the chair and my hand. The chairs are wood resting on plastic buckets. There is plenty of air flow (open door on one end).

When I was shooting dryfall, I would feel that large static charge growing, then I would hit the rail of my lift and POW!!! Man it hurt worse than any doorknob I can remember touching on a winter day! Mixed with a Tyvek suit...man that sux.

The next ? is this a fairly new tip or is it over sized.And how is the pressure. Keep it as low as you can. At the same time you will get a little bite hanging in the air. But from There my guess would be design and amount of air flow is to little. The little that I have spray in a Delvillivis SP. and working from Memory it had a lot of air flow or suck.

Dean I started a thread in the tools section which has some links to different fresh air systems under $700.

Check it out if you are interested.

Default Weater related perhaps

What is the weather like because this could be related. Interesting to see if your static issue changes with a different atmospheric condition. funny thing is the worst static I ever felt was actually spraying chairs on asphalt outside with tarps and no barrier.
