Sprayer markers 20:1

Here we invited the most "dilutable" products to push the limits. Only Blinder mentions a 20:1 overmarking possibility in its literature. Supastadia recommends dilution rates down to 10:1 and Duramark to 12.1. The same process of making single and double applications was carried out.

In the trials of other rates, time and the weather faded all the lines a little. In the 20:1 trial, they appeared to have a greater effect. Although a cost saving is made, the lines are not as clear as our tester would like and the brightness and clarity are lost quicker.
After drying, the tester assesses the lines, placing Fleet Blinder top, followed by Topline Supastadia Extra and then Rigby Taylor's Duramark Supreme. After 11 days, all lines are still visible but they are very much alike in terms of strength.
