Combined with Albatek's new selection of sprayer equipment you have more control than ever over the finished product.

Trouble with finishing oak?

Many problems can occur with finishing oak. One in particular are bubble on the open grain. In some cases, the equipment that is being used may be out of adjustment. Finishing oak by spraying with to high air pressure can sometimes cause this problem. Generally, air pressure should not be any higher than 40-45 PSI. If the equipment is adjusted properly and you have extreme conditions (temperatures above 90 degrees F), additional air release additives or retarder is needed.

First try, four to eight oz of retarder (RT-001) per gallon. Retarder is less costly than air release agent. If problem persist, add bubble breaker (ADD-005) two to eight oz per gallon. If problem persist call manufacturer.
