Questions & Answers

What types of paint is this cup for, ie, automotive, household?

Asked by: Dan
Any kind of paint that you would want to put through a spray gun. Your gun's instruction set will specify the maximum viscosity that it can handle. It will say something like "160 seconds" meaning that any finish that takes longer than 160 seconds to pour through this cup is too viscous for your gun.

What unit does this measure in? Pa s, mm^2/s, centipoise, centistoke? Will this measure kinematic viscosity or dynamic viscosity?
Asked by: RasenSharingan
It measures in minutes/seconds per cupful. For example, my Earlex HVLP sprayer has a viscosity rating of 160 seconds, meaning if it takes longer than 160 seconds for the paint to pour through a #4 viscosity cup, I need to thin the finish.

It's just a plastic cup with a metered hole in the bottom. It's the standard for figuring out the viscosity of your paint/stain. For any so called home improvement store that touts professional service to not carry this is ridicules. To have to order this and then wait for delivery as opposed to be able to pick it off the shelf is questionable. But yes, this is what I expected and the price point for this plastic cup is high.

Just needed reasonable consistency so that we could establish a reliable "recipe" for mixing a specialized liquid coating used in our business, and this little cup works great for that. 23-24 seconds for our coating gives us consistent viscosity every time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality, accurate viscosity cup....but you may not need it... At ten seconds before the full minute, dip this cup into the paint. When the second hand gets to 12:00, lift the cup and watch the stream of paint as it drizzles back into the can. The cup is considered drained when the stream of paint "breaks", that is, when it is no longer continuous. As soon as the break occurs, note the number of seconds it took to drain the cup, and there is your viscosity measurement. Compare that to the viscosity requirement for your gun/nozzle combination and there you go. After a dozen or so times, you probably will have a good feel for the viscosity that works best in your gun and you won't bother, but if you change needle/tip combinations, it's probably a good idea to check every once in a while. This is a good quality, accurate cup. Unfortunately, it turns out I don't actually need it. I ordered this along with an Earlex 5500 HVLP sprayer because the specifications of the sprayer did NOT mention that a viscosity cup was already included with the sprayer. This is a perfectly good viscosity cup, but if I had known that an identical cup ships with the Earlex 5500 sprayer, I would not have ordered this one. Oh well, it's probably good to have a spare on hand.
