This gun was developed to spray & Woolwax® and other lanolin based undercoating. This applicator gun used by many of our professional applicator locations. We consider this to be the best applicator spray gun available for Fluid Film® & Woolwax® undercoating applications. We had this gun modified and developed specifically for woolgrease undercoating. This gun comes complete with (1) 18" flexible 360° wand & (1) 24" straight open end wand.
- Modified internally to apply Fluid Film® or Woolwax®
- Adjustable nozzle for flow control
- Includes (3) clear quart bottles with caps
- Includes 24"" flexible open-end wand
- Includes 18" flex 360° extension wand
- European Made
Note: The 32"
360° optional long wand may not work well depending on
the temperature, compressor psi, and product viscosity. This long wand
can easily be shortened by removing the barbed fitting at the end,
cutting the tube, and replacing the barbed fitting. Because Woolwax® is
thicker than any other undercoat product, we find the ideal length to be
about 18". At 18" it works perfectly with Woolwax®. Other thinner
products may work well with a longer length.
Air Compressors for Undercoating guns
We get this question all the time.
Kellsport Products undercoating guns use very little pressure. Only 70-90psi. Most
compressors run around 125 psi. So the psi and the cfm are not really
important in this application. The tank size is important. We recommend no
smaller than a 3 gallon tank size. Any smaller than that and you are
constantly waiting for the tank to recover. Most very small compressors
will say on the box "not adequate for spray painting". As long as you
can spray paint with a compressor, you can use it to undercoat. Many
people have told us they they have bought inexpensive compressors
($75+/-) from Harbor Freight or similar stores and they work just fine.
We suggest putting an inexpensive regulator ($10+/-) on the gun end
so you can tweak it from the gun without having to go back and forth to
the compressor. Don't try to remove the fitting at the bottom of the gun handle, as
it does not come off. It's a standard 1/4" fitting. bring the gun with
you to the store for the right connection.
Cleaning the Undercoat Gun.
Our Undercoat guns do not need to
be cleaned after use when using with Woolwax®. Woolwax® undercoating is solvent
free, so there is no evaporation or hardening process. The Woolwax® left in the
bottle will thicken over time. But you can restore to its original viscosity by
Some people do prefer to
clean the gun and wands. To do this we recommend just putting some solvent (acetone,
mineral spirits, paint thinner, etc.) into one of the bottles and spraying a
bit through the gun. Some people just
put water and dishwashing liquid into the bottle, and they say that it works fine.
Most people just leave the gun
loaded and ready to go without doing anything at all. That way you can do a quick touch-up or spray
some outdoor power equipment with almost no setup time.
Bottom line……. Don’t worry about
the undercoat guns when using Woolwax®. They won’t clog.
