The internet is full of resources that offer information about spraying and coatings. As a general rule, we always suggest following the advice of the paint manufacturers themselves. However, we recognise the wealth of information that influencers and independent organisations hold, especially when they can get this information across in an understandable and interesting way.
With this in mind, we have selected a few people and websites that we recommend for anyone wanting trustworthy information:
Specialised in spraying furniture and cabinets in his own spray room, Matt has a wealth of experience in using 2K PU products from various suppliers, as well as testing many waterborne furniture coatings. He is a great professional and you can see he enjoys what he does.

Specialised in on-site finishing using mobile spray equipment for painters and decorators, Paint Tech offers nationwide spray courses for decorators that want to learn more about spraying with different equipment, or sprayers that want to transform their business through nationally recognised qualifications.
