Hey guys, quick question. Have any one you guys sprayed elastomeric with your Titan 440? I’m specifically talking about Dunn Edwards Enduralastic 5 or 10. Any help of thinning/tip sizes would be appreciated as well. Thanks:smile:

I've watched guys try to spray firestop with a 440. It doest atomize at all. It came out in globs and streams, got all over the freshly painted walls I did.

You'll probably need something with much more power. And a large tip... Probably 021 or 023.

The pump isn't big enough. You might be able to shoot it, but you could be doing lots of harm to your pump.

You can do .021 on a 440i, but at 100' of line it gets iffy and the pump can't keep up. 50' you can do it pretty good. It's not the ideal pump, maybe try to rent a bigger one. SW usually rents a graco 695 and you would be good to go.

I wouldn't even do that with latex, let alone heavier coatings.

Do what?? Spray normal latex paint. Dang dude what do you think this pump is made for?? No real input, just guesses!!
If Titan advertises a 021 tip max for the 440, you can bet there's fine print that says "only for this and that coatings". I bet regular latex wall paint, with a 021 tip, would push the machine past the limits.

I have two Titan 840s, which are 1gpm pumps, and there are times when I struggle with dryfall, a 100foot line and a 417 tip. Titan advertises you can use two guns on these pumps, which I think is bull****.

why would you spray latex with a 021?? Waste much.
I just sprayed a whole house ceiling with superpaint flat, 514 tip, 440i, came out perfect. You don't need to use huge tips with latex. Spec on Conflex XL smooth, SW's best elastomeric calls for .021!! So why the grief here? I call BS on your claim above, you probably need to take your pump to monkeynuts!!

I have two painter friends who have Titans, one has 440 and the other 440i.
They do tons of work with them on med to high end homes and I never heard them complaining about their gears.
Only praises how good they are and easy to work with.

You're missing my point, entirely. You said that the pump could handle a 021 tip, which is the max size Titan recommends. I'm telling you that it can only handle that big of a tip with lightweight coatings, and that even latex would give you issues. We're talking about the capabilities of a pump, not what you actually use when you're working.


This firestop, which is what most guys seem to use, actually recommends a Titan 640 minimum, but say a 1140 is ideal. https://www.hilti.ca/c/CLS_FIRESTOP_PROTECTION_7131/CLS_FIRESTOP_SEALANTS_SPRAYS_7131/r4775

Sorry, I'm not missing your point!! You had no point other than what you saw someone spraying this firestop product which has no relevance to what the OP wanted help with in elastomeric coatings. I gave a real response based on my own knowledge and usage of said pump and material.
You responses on most post sounds like you are a troll. ie. you have glitter on your ceiling when the OP asked about glitter paint, and obvious faux type product.

You've never heard of a glitter gun? Her post wasn't about glitter paint. She just said glitter on the walls. Go troll someone else 🙂
