Spray technique tips

Hi,

I am fairly new to the business and I am trying to figure out how to spray properly.

I know that when you spray there are 2 lines that show when spraying. I am worried that those lines may stay after the product (BlackMac) dries.

If anybody can provide some tips on how to effectively spray so that the driveway will dry evenly I would GREATLY appreciate it.

Ya it is an oil based product. Will it blend in and become uniform or will it be there for a LONG WHILE?

Try turning up your pressure or putting a new tip on. A worn out tip will show those lines even when you have good pressure.

The tip and gun are both brand new. When I was working today I was thinking that the pressure was low. I will try doing that

Thanks!
