- Commercial Spray Part 3: How to Do It
A blended spray-on application of dry fibers merging with a pre-mixed adhesive to a properly prepared surface. This spray application is a combination of fiber and glue adhesive providing a monolithic coating on vertical and horizontal (overhead) surfaces that will remain exposed without additional covering treatments. This application must be impacted in a steady, uniform spray pattern with sufficient blowing air velocity and glue pressure to assure a long lasting, durable and aesthetic appearance. The end result of this process provides a semi-hard, crusty, textured, durable surface treatment offering effectively designed attributes of sound attenuation & high ‘R’-factor insulation.
A semi-hard interior surface coating or covering process that offers superior sound attenuation and thermal qualities. Preferred for coating un-even and non-linear interior surfaces difficult to cover with batt and board applications. (i.e. corrugated metal siding/decking, structural supports, wood, glass, masonry, etc.). An ideal solution for sound / movie studios, theaters, and noisy environments like offices, restaurants and public meeting halls. The resulting semi-smooth surface can be further improved by additional spray treatments to offer choices of color, texture, and enhanced sealing characteristics.
Product manufacturers and suppliers offer choices of materials in Fiberglass, Cellulose, Rockwool, and other specialty fibers for spray application to surfaces. These suppliers provide the fibers in combination with recommended adhesive products that have been tested and approved with their fibers and application techniques. (Note: Be sure to follow all manufacturers’ recommendations in the preparation and application of this commercial spray-on process. Proper surface cleaning and preparation is very important before proceeding with this spray-on application).
Product considerations when choosing a supplier: color, finished surface treatment, warranty, and quality/cost comparisons.
