Paint Spray Guns

There are 4 main benefits to using paint spray guns. First, they allow you to cover larger areas quicker than standard paint brushes and rollers. This allows painting projects to be finished in less time. Second, they make it possible to cover up imperfections, such as bumps and cracks, that rollers and brushes would find challenging. The same applies for surfaces which are quite rough, such as brickwork.

Third, it is possible to get a more even coat with the paint spray gun than with traditional roller and brush after enough practice. Finally, spray paint guns offer different configuration settings that will give different finishes. This means that there is a great range of aesthetic looks from the tool, that the traditional tools do not offer.

Spray paint guns are designed so that the user can paint large areas quickly and evenly. This can include traditional paints, as well as lacquers, varnishes, shellac and other similar finishes. A common use of the spray paint gun is to carry out paint work at home. However, due to the large distribution radius, it takes skill to apply to an interior wall without paint ended up elsewhere. This is not a factor when painting external walls, as additional paint often goes alongside the building rather than on other walls or ceilings, as it would indoors. This means that the spray paint gun can be used both inside and outside.

As well as painting walls, spray paint guns can be used for stationary items, such as cars, garden fencing, furniture and general appliances, making it a very versatile piece of equipment.

Key Features

Spray paint guns are typically split into three main components. First, the airhead. This is the most important element of the gun as this is where they paint is sprayed from. This is where the air and paint mix (either externally or internally depending in the design) and has a direct impact on the amount of paint used and the quality of the finish that is created when sprayed.

Second is the flow regulator. As the name suggest, the flow regulator determines how much paint comes out of the nozzle when operated. Lastly is the nozzle, which is where the paint leaves the gun. The nozzle is usually interchangeable, depending on the model, giving the operator a way to customize the distribution of the paint. Some manufacturers, for example DeVilbiss and Binks, produce extended nozzles, which make it easy to get to corners and other hard to reach places.

Types of Paint Spray Guns

There are 3 main types of spray gun. These include air paint sprayers (professional quality), compressed air sprayers (great for small area surfaces), and HVLP paint sprayers (cheapest and most versatile).
