Lint in Paint

Post by buckz on March 29th 2010, 4:43 pm

Figured this would be good for a first post!!!

I am currently painting my jeep using the roller method (i will post the whole project after i get done and/or have time. I think im am getting little fibers (lint) from the clothes I am waring in the paint. I am on my 3rd coat and have wet sanded after the second. I think I have removed most of them with the wetsand but just applied another coat and from more fibers. I took my sweatshirt off and did not see anymore in the rest of the areas I painted.

My question is has anyone else run into this and were you able to just keep going and give it a regular wet sand to get them out?

I will post photos later tonight in the projects section, it is looking good! cheers

Welcome to rolled on buckz

Keep that sweatshirt in the house! the paints thin enough and wet sanding on top of that, so the less you have to sand the better. From what I can tell it looks good!

Do you have a camera?

We like pics,lots of pics.LOL

Have a buddy that is almost finish with his jeep and I might have him talked into trying this rolled on painting out so I'm interested in your project and the pros & cons.

Thanks for the response!

I wore a different shirt and still had the same issue, a bunch of little lint in the paint, very odd. I'm even using a tack cloth before i paint. I think i need to roll the jeep outside and clean the floors well.

I will post up the whole project to help your buddy out. It has been very labor intesive, but fun. I will help with many qustions i am sure he will have as i could not find a good step-by-step for a jeep.

bugs, hair, lint, pollen and dust.. you'll get it all

But I have to ask.. are you using a high density foam roller? Cuz if your using a fuzzy roller you'll get fuzzy paint! Those fibers are big enough to cause problems

I am using the high density roller. The finish is outstanding, very little orange peal and great gloss. The only problem is the little lint...maybe i am being too anal. I did start my project post, and will add MANY posts to it in the next few days and as things progress. Thanks for your responses!

I had many tiny black bugs that thought they could get a cheap high...

they wet sanded out easy

If you can get a pic of the fibers maybe we can tell what they are coming from

try using a box fan and blowing it AWAY from where you are painting. It almost sounds like you have a static issue.

it does feel like there is a little static after i clean it off with the tack cloth. Is there any trick to keeping the static down?

I think they make a non-static spray, but I'm not 100% sure on that.

a wire from the frame/body to a ground - plumbing works good for that, or electrical conduit - or a pipe in the ground!

Great idea, Thanks!!! I will try that in the morning. I did not paint today, cold and wet outside even though it is in a garage.
