I sent those Da-Lite perforated 1x1 foot samples a couple of weeks ago.


Did you receive them and have you had a chance to paint them with the Goo??


I am anxious to hear the results.


Thanks

Matt

I have been plying with them, since I received them. it appears as if the product is PVC.. so.. It may not handle screen goo very well. This means a thick coating is out of the question. However, it may be possible to put on a very light, highly thinned coating of the product. (CRT Screen goo?) This would work fine, I suspect. i am doing a few sample things tomorrow. I will see if I can work them into the schedule.

I have sprayed the material,and waiting to see how it dries..and how long that takes. When the product never dries, what happens, is the gain continues to creep up over time. So far, it is dry. A week from now..we will see. The paint went on beautifully. It was thinned to a very high degree, and laid down with a Wagner power sprayer. It was laid down wet, and thin. The material took the paint very well, without filling holes at all. It should work beautifully. The gain is coming in at about 1.4, at least on the mix I was using.

Please keep us informed on how it is drying.


Also, please keep notes on the mixing instructions, how many coats, application procedures, etc.


If you are at 1.4, I would like to see a little more to maybe 1.6 - 1.8. That would be perfect for my application.


Thanks

Has it dried successfully??


I am interested if the audiovision will take the paint well and dry completely.


Thanks

It has dried to what is probably near it's final point. They appear to not be using too much in the way of plasticizers in the PVC. So, the stickiness is not really there. it is an a subtle way, but not too bad. It would be washable, and usable, i suspect. having not sat around with it for 12 weeks or so, it is still really hard to say. . it's migration of a liquid INTO the screengoo mix that is the problem, and this can only take place over time.

Thanks for the update but I am not sure that I fully understand your post. You say the stickyness is not there. Is it sticky or is it not?


The last sentance I do not understand at all.


Thanks

Matt
