White Tacky

Washable tacky booth coating with spectacular white finish

Like90 White TackyLike90 White Tacky is a water-based, low-VOC booth coating that can make your booth look like new in as little as one hour. In addition, it traps overspray and other contamination on booth walls and doors, keeping it out of your paint work. It is fast and easy to apply and covers existing overspray so there’s no need to refinish booth surfaces. Over-coat up to four times to keep your booth looking fabulous between full maintenance cycles. White Tacky washes off easily with water.

NOTE: Like90 White Tacky is recommended for paint booths where the relative humidity in the booth is consistently 70% or lower. In humid environments consistently above 70% R.H., the coating will transfer to the touch and may run when the R.H. is consistently above 85 to 90%. Running a bake cycle or two will remove some of the moisture from the coating’s film.

Directions for Use
Preparation:
1. Remove any temporary coating or protective film before applying. Make sure booth walls and other surfaces are completely dry. Freshly painted booth surfaces must be fully cured. Mask any booth surfaces you do not wish to cover.
2. Optional: For the best looking finish without repainting and to maximize coverage, nib existing rough overspray from walls with a 180 or 220 grit disc on a DA sander.
3. Turn on the booth’s spray cycle and set booth temperature to 75° F (24° C).

Application:
1. Shake or agitate coating in container.
2. Apply 1 medium wet coat (3 to 4 mils) to booth walls and doors. Apply a second coat to cover areas with heavy overspray. Use a well-maintained HVLP gun with a 2.2mm tip and 20 psi at the gun. Pressure Pot: To best determine fluid volume, close down air pressure at gun and adjust pot pressure until stream shot from gun is 3 feet long. Set gun to 20 psi. Airless: 0.025 spray tip orifice with 90 degree fan.
3. Allow coating to cure so that it is no longer wet to touch. If booth humidity is high, run a bake cycle to help the coating firm up. Cured coating will be tacky to touch.
4. Use a damp sponge to remove any overspray.
5. Clean spray gun immediately with warm water.
6. As overspray and other contamination accumulate, coating will begin to lose its tackiness and white finish. Overcoat as desired up to 3 or 4 times by applying one or two wet coats. Overcoat up to four times. Coating should be completely removed and re-applied at least every 6 months.
7. To protect booth lights and windows, apply one of Like90’s clear booth coatings (Tacky Clear, Booth Coating, or Clear View).

Removal:
1. Allow booth to cool to ambient temperature. TURN OFF ALL POWER TO BOOTH LAMPS.
2. Remove or protect filter gratings, if present to keep water out.
3. Using a hose or pressure washer, spray water onto all coated surfaces. Scrub heavy overspray areas with a wash mitt or brush. Rinse surfaces again.
4. Use compressed air to blow water away from all lights and glass surfaces.
5. Allow booth to dry. Remove water from floor with squeegee. When all surfaces are dry, re-apply coating.
6. NOTE: Effluent is safe for disposal to municipal water treatment facilities; however, check local regulations to determine if specific requirements exist.
