The folded 'accordion' design, of this Procart B spray booth filter, ensures a high paint holding capacity whilst maintaining maximum airflow for much longer than many types of air filtration alternatives such as fibreglass rolls. Our spray booth filters will ensure that air, from your product finishing area, is filtered effectively.

This Procart spray booth filter is designed to filter all types of water and solvent based paints and other types of coating but not powder paints or dust (for this we recommend the use of our Procart M2 or Procart H booth filters). With this design of paper filter your overspray is captured on both on the face of the filter and within the folds which allows the booth air to pass through the filter with minimal obstruction until full, thus a constant, smooth airflow is maintained for much longer than using other types of extraction filtration. What is so important about airflow? Without it you don't have a proper functioning spray booth and you won't be able to produce a proper finish so a good airflow is vital to the running of your spray booth.

If you are looking to spray powder or very dry or dusty paints or feel that your spray booth may suffer from a high percentage of overspray or you are experiencing problems with dust or paint traveling through your ducting and ending up outside of your factory then you may want to look at the other options within our Filtration range or feel free to call us on 01673 895130 or email us for further assistance.

If you require a non-standard size then simply select the closest standard size larger than your required size. During the check-out process you can complete your required size in the box for special requests. If you would prefer to tell us your requirements then this is fine however you can still purchase your filters here.

ELASTICOTE AQ is a water based peelable coating designed to protect metals, glass, plastics, porcelain etc within the industrial environment. It offers economical and hard-waring protection whilst still being easily removed - simply peel from the surface, even when covered with paint for many months - ideal for spray booth walls.

Elasticote AQ is robust enough for the application of several coats so there is no need to remove the original coat when it starts to become dirty. Simply brush the surface to remove any loose dust and apply a new coat. Many of our customers apply 3-4 coats before removing.

Being water based, its use will dramatically reduce the use of VOCs. It is also extremely flexible and can be removed, together with paint, after several months reducing the need for spray booths maintenance.

Dries within 8 hours at 20°C in air
Water-based - improved Health & Safety compared to solvent based products
Non-flammable so improved Health and Safety
Insensitive to organic solvents and water
Greatly reduces cleaning time
No VOC
pH neutral (does not attack ferrous or non-ferrous metals or wood)

Note: This product should not be applied directly on galvanised surfaces which are pitted as it may be difficult to remove. Paint the galvanised surface first or apply a thin coat of our solvent coating first - Elasticote or Elasticote TR - then apply Elasticote AQ.

Application

Apply a thick layer with a traditional spray gun using a large nozzle or using a brush or a roller apply a film which resists lifting at 80-100 microns. If using a spray gun, the product should be diluted with water to a consistency which best suits your preferred method of application but may need more coats for optimal thickness.

Coverage

The first coat should be applied at approximately 3m2 per kg, subsequent layers will be around 6m2 per kg.

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO APPLY ELASTICOTE AQ?
As this is a water-based product it can be applied by either brush, roller or spray. Either way is just as effective, so the method of application really depends upon you and the type of area you are going to apply it to.

HOW MANY COATS CAN I APPLY?
That really depends upon how old the coats are and how much paint is between each of them. We normally recommend 5-6 coats and applying a new one when the surface is dirty rather than leaving it until there is 10mm of paint build-up.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR ELASTICOTE AQ TO DRY?
Again, this rather depends upon how thick the layer is and the temperature. As a guide we would say that it takes around 6-8 hours for the coating to be fully dry. This can be reduced by increasing the temperature however you must be careful not to set it too high otherwise a dry skin could form.

WHAT SURFACE CAN I APPLY ELASTICOTE AQ TO?
Almost any type of surface apart from galvanised sheets. Remember that Elasticote AQ can be used to protect a surface from paint overspray such as spray booth walls but can also be used to protect items in storage or in transit as well.
