Selecting an effective spray gun can help ensure a successful job, yet many factors must be taken into consideration before making your purchase.
While any spray gun can get the job done, a dedicated finish spray gun masters wood finishing with its expertise in handling diverse fluids, adjustable fan patterns for precision, and the ability to spray undiluted coatings for professional-grade durability.
Wood finishing spray guns are built to handle various fluids such as wood stain, polyurethane, and milk paint. Furthermore, these guns offer adjustable fan patterns and undiluted coatings for maximum durability.
Airless Spray Guns
While airless spray guns excel for doors, shutters, latticework, and balustrades, professional foam guns offer an alternative approach for applying thick coatings like insulation оr soundproofing materials. Airless spray guns, with their pump, tank, and electric motor, force liquid through a hose and tip for high-pressure painting. You’ll enjoy precise control over spray fan size and atomization thanks to the adjustable trigger and nozzle combo, leading to excellent transfer efficiency for enamels and protective coatings. The mastered technique brings exquisite finishes with minimal overspray and bubbles.
HVLP Spray Guns
HVLP spray guns dispense finishes at high volume and low pressure, meaning less overspray. Overspray is the enemy of fine finishes and can waste as much as 25% of your finish material.
An HVLP spray gun system consists of a turbine that generates air, an air supply hose, and a gun that combines your finish with air to break it into tiny particles for application – known as “atomization.” Although simple in principle, perfecting this process takes some practice.
When choosing an HVLP spray gun, consider both the type of finish you will use and the size of your projects when choosing an HVLP system. We advise selecting one with a disposable cup and one that can be disassembled easily for quick cleanup – we also suggest reading reviews about the gun before making your final purchase decision.
Electrostatic Spray Guns
An electrostatic spray gun uses an electrical charge to create an attraction between atomized coating material and its intended substrate, thus minimizing overspray and loss of coating material. Waterborne electrostatic spray guns also make covering difficult-to-access areas much simpler, while providing additional safety features to ensure the operator remains protected. First, the gun itself must be grounded to prevent static electricity build-up. Second, its internal circuit can adjust the strength of its electric charge in case it comes too close to grounded objects. Thirdly, there is a special cord available that connects directly to a grounding system for added safety.
Employing an electrostatic spray gun can substantially enhance transfer efficiency and powder state control, leading to superior appearance coatings at faster production speeds while saving materials, reducing waste, and cutting production costs.
Foam guns use automotive car wash soap in a canister to spray a thick layer of foam onto an automobile’s surface, which loosens and lifts contaminants like bird droppings, bug splatter, and road grime as the foam settles – helping clear fill tubes reach more quickly for an even coat of clear coat coating.
Selecting the ideal spray gun depends on several considerations, including your usage requirements for painting or gluing workpieces and what finish you desire to create. Furthermore, compressor usage and its capacity should be taken into account as an additional factor.
For wood finishing, DeVilbiss FLG-515 Series HVLP guns may provide optimal atomization and can help save you money by spraying less paint. Furthermore, these spray guns use lower air volumes than others, thereby decreasing waste and contamination issues.
