Backrolling is rolling over the area sprayed to work the paint into all the crevices. Sometimes you will also back roll paint that has been rolled on heavily - to smooth it out.

The manufacture wants to make sure you get a good coat of paint on their product. Brushing and/or rolling will achieve that. Spraying alone can leave some areas not fully covered [protected] with paint.

I am not familiar with the substrate, but if it says backroll, then you at least have to backroll the first coat





...lol on the dribbling powerpainter...

I agree the first coat [or atleast 1 coat] would need to be backrolled. It doesn't really matter what type of airless you use [unless I'm the one spraying ] you still need to backroll. Spraying applies the paint on top of the substrate while brushing or rolling will work the paint into the surface.

Although it doesn't work for all coatings or substrates when feasable you can spray, backroll and then spray again which gives you good coverage in one application [3 steps]

One person can spray and backroll although it is a lot harder doing it all yourself but........ would hate to see a fellow diyer in the dog house

Its way to late for that , i stay there, the dogs have it good though , they have a 20 x 20 kennel and each one has there own Dog Igloo ,i installed a vent fan system so in the summer it won't be so hot and in the winter i've got side covers to keep the wind out . So staying in the doghouse really ain't so bad
