TOP 10 HVLP Sprayer Guns
A great HVLP paint sprayer can spray paint everything from furniture, chairs, shutters and any type of wood project.
High Volume Low Pressure (HVLP) Spray-Guns are designed to reduce overspray, improve application accuracy and reduce waste.
The high volume of air controls the direction and flow of paint.
The low pressure reduces overspray and bounceback.
HVLP spray guns are used for fine finishes, or anywhere where the applicator needs low-overspray and a high degree of control.
Easy to hold and easy to clean.
Different nozzles allow you different spray patters from wide to narrow and fine.
High volume low pressure (HVLP) is similar to a conventional spray gun using a compressor to supply the air, but the spray gun itself requires a lower pressure (LP). A higher volume (HV) of air is used to aerosolise and propel the paint at lower air pressure. The result is a higher proportion of paint reaching the target surface with reduced overspray, materials consumption, and air pollution. A regulator is often required so that the air pressure from a conventional compressor can be lowered for the HVLP spray gun. Alternatively a turbine unit (commonly containing a vacuum cleaner derived motor) can be used to propel the air without the need for an air line running to the compressor.
A rule of thumb puts two thirds of the coating on the substrate and one third in the air. True HVLP guns use 8–20 cfm (13.6–34 m3/h), and an industrial compressor with a minimum of 5 horsepower (3.7 kW) output is required. HVLP spray systems are used in the automotive, decorative, marine, architectural coating, furniture finishing, scenic painting, and cosmetic industries. Source
