Price

Coverage area

Manual coating sprayers galvanised stainless and plastic types reducer plates crank handles spray coverage tyrolean rendering Plastic sprayers tend to be larger and so can hold more mixture and spray larger areas. Because of this, they do not come with a reducer plate and are often the choice of professional plasterers and builders.

Steel sprayers, such as the galvanised and stainless versions, are, on the whole, smaller and have reducer plates enabling more precise coverage to smaller work areas if needed.

Galvanised steel sprayers

The main casing is often a thin sheet steel shaped into form and then coated with a zinc protective layer. This makes the sprayer lighter but susceptible to rust once the galvanised layer wears through.

The main casing is stainless steel sheet that is shaped into form. The stainless steel is denser than the lower grade sheet steel, which makes the stainless sprayer slightly heavier than the galvanised types.

Plastic types do not come with a reducer plate as they are designed to apply larger coverage areas. This makes them the choice of professional plasterers/builders when faced with larger projects.
