Default Spraying conductive coating

Has anyone any experience of spraying conductive coating, I was looking at one of these devices http://www.prevalspraygun.com/
I am rebuilding some ESL63 panels.

Hi,

its nearly impossible to get even coatings with a spray can nozzle.
Airbrush pistols are alternatives. Maybe you can get an airbrush shop to do the job for You?

Hi,

Wether an airbrush is possible or not depends on the specific type (properties) of the coatingfluid.
Your supplier of coating fluid should be able to give you the right answer. Spraying coatings which are not designed to be sprayed may result in failure!!

Omeegosh, I am so out of date. I thought the only ways were spreading Halo shampoo or rubbing graphite on with balls of cotton wool.

Can somebody very briefly name a few of today's leading methods for me?

Thanks.

How about using a misting system to apply the coating by means of a very fine mist? Almost like "dusting"...
