When you need something painted and brushes just won’t do the job, you reach for the HVLP spray gun. HVLP stands for High Volume, Low Pressure, which means that you can apply large amounts of paint and other liquids with a gentle spray that will drench and finish your project beautifully. We’ve compiled a list of the best spray guns, but here are some things you’ll need to know before you start shopping.
Tip Size: The size of the tip on the spray gun determines the area you can spray at once, and how much material will go through the gun in a single spray. Larger tips are great for thicker materials as well.
Canister Capacity: The capacity of the canister is how much liquid it will hold. This will determine the size of the project as well as how long you can spray before the material needs to be refilled in order to continue.
Gravity Feed: Gravity Feed is a method of material delivery that uses gravity to get the most out of the container. It allows more paint and other liquid to be used and will save you on time and material.
Warranty: The warranty is the amount of time you have to report a mechanical or manufacturing defect. After this time, the company isn’t liable and will not provide you a refund or replacement machine, so keep an eye on it!
Dimensions: The size of the product will tell you a lot, including how much product you’re going to be able to spray, how complicated it is, and how easy it’s going to be to use. The weight will also help.
Weight: Heavier guns may be more difficult to work with because the weight listed is how heavy it is before being loaded with material. So keep an eye on this if you’re looking for something easier to use.
