Yes to both.

Substitute for Behr Ultrapure White 1850 Flat base?

I am collecting paints and tools for my SF 2.5/2 project. I have found all except the Behr UPW 1850 flat...Home Depot no longer sells it, only the UPW 1750 Matte base. The paint guy at Home Depot says "it's the same stuff," but I am not so sure, so I turn to you SilverFire experts. Can I use the 1750, or is there a source for the 1850, or another substitute?

I used the 1750 on my silverfire build and it worked fine.

ive been using my trusted graco 1900 unit for spraying silver fire but am wondering if buying a stronger spray unit like Earlex new stronger spray station gives any added benifits apart from having to use less water. it seems that most on here now use stronger unit but am wondering what advantage they have vs using my 1900 unit.

A more powerful air supply does not mean the Paint can be thicker, it means that when using the proper Needle size, you get more atomization, and a larger pattern.

What im more curious about is how darker silver fire would look with the spray sytem that requires more water vs one that requires less water. For instance, if i made a batch of silver fire 3.0, one batch for my 1900 unit that requires way more water vs one for the newer spraystations that require less water, I would expect the batch that has more water to not appear as dark as the batch for the stronger unit. More water spreads the pigment out more vs the batch with less water. More water, less silver and pigment concentration. less water, stronger silver and pigmentation. I would think if your using the newer spray units you have to really be more carefull on how many coats you put down or you'll create a hot spot quicker then if your using a more deluted mixture. When using my 1900 unit I also use a 1.0 needle. My graco 1900 unit required a lot of water to get a proper spray patteren. Like, I lost count amount of water to be exact, lol

All the water in the paint eventually evaporates. It's there in the beginning to help effect a ultra smooth flow and application that you simply cannot get using heavier bodied paints.

Water also helps the individual components blend more evenly, and also works with the Polyurethane to do likewise.

As previously stated, more air pressure does have some effect, but when using a 1.0 mm needle / nozzle, thinness is the most important factor. Extra ooomph from higher air pressure just make it all happen all the better.

The Color of a given mix will always stay the same.
