Subject: CPES Application

Can you apply CPES with a pump up sprayer (ie: like the ones you use for garden or bug sprays)? I know some chemicals don't react well under pressure. We have some logs that are quite rotten on the outside and were wanting to try and push the sprayer into some of the openings.
What do you use for clean-up of the CPES?
Thank You.

Sure, you can use any sprayer you wish. Pressure is not a problem. Sometimes the values in the spray equipment won't withstand long-term use of the CPES because of the powerful carrier solvents. But many folks use the sprayer and if the valves go they just throw it away.

For clean-up and for flushing out spray equipment if it starts to bind, use lacquer thinner.

And come on back anytime you have additional questions.
