    OK Im fed up with TRASH in my Wind tunnel!!!!!
    Actually its not bad at all as far as flow goes just being sarcastic about it.

    I am looking at trying some of these Booth Coatings the Tacky ones you spray on the booth walls ceiling and floors any one ever try these?
    Do they work??? Are they worth the money are they as easy to clean up after as they say with a pressure washer??

    find out where the dust is coming from and eliminate it. I coat my booth walls to keep the overspray off the walls. not to keep the dust out of the paint

    All the booth coatings I have seen are more like spray mask. It basically dries like paint, but can be washed away afterward or peeled off (depending on the type). I have never heard of a sticky one.

    Is the dust from the booth, vehicle or possibly you? How well sealed is the booth, does it maintain positive pressure (or is it not pressurized)? Are you using good quality filters and are they changed? Is the booth, intake and exhaust clean? Is your air hose clean, or old and caked in paint?

    When is the last time you changed your intake and exhaust filters??Don’t be cheap with filters either,get good ones.Your projects need to be as clean as possible before it goes in the booth,it is all about the prep.

    Booth coating is essentially liquid soap. It dries on the wall and acts like a barrier to keep the overspray off the wall. Then when you get it wet it washes off the wall. It won’t collect dust. I always find most of my dust in my booth comes from within the booth itself, buildup on exhaust filters, airlines etc. By cleaning everything in the booth frequently, including what your painting, everything stays pretty clean

    what do you guys recommend for guys like me without a booth? I have been planning on getting a couple gallons of Tacky Coat for the walls, thinking it would really cut down on the dust settling…. Is the stuff bogus?

    We have just givin our down draft booth a make over also has water trays that the water gets pumped around the side of the booth and also has a strip of filter down the centre of the booth.
    We sprayed the walls with that tacky glue stuff and does actually work real good stuff.

    This is what I was talking about there are several mfg of diffrent types http://www.acmebooths.com/id9.htm

    I need to order some new Intake filters I think they have been up there a while.
    I just found out surfing around looking for that Dust control stuff That Intake filters are not all the same as far as efficiency goes (didnt know that)

    I have a semi down draft booth so I am looking at these filters http://www.chemcomfg.com/product/intake-filters-afr-1.html

    If any one has any suggestions I would love too see them

    Also how often should Intake filters be changed?
    I live in a Hi Dust environment

    I was using evercoats tacky coat on the walls. The stuff does work. You should see what gets stuck on the walls after a couple weeks. I have however stopped using it. I now use the 3m dirt trap stuff on the walls. Kinda pricy for the inital purchase but its way cheaper in the long run. I am able to clean the booth in half the time withoit the need for powerwashing. It will last on my walls for about a year. All i need to do i change the filters, brush the walls with a broom and change the floor paper out.
