Paint sprayer makes it possible to obtain a smooth and even layer for a short time, which cannot be achieved by using conventional brush or roller.
Oh, if the painting is just a part of your repair project, you should also pay attention to the cordless drills. They will definitely help you make a hole in any piece of furniture or fix the shelf on the wall.
What Features to Compare
In order to choose the right Paint Sprayer, you need to define the purposes, which it has to carry out. That is why first of all, you should pay attention to such an important feature as Paint Sprayer Type. Sprayers are divided into three types: air, pneumatic and airless. Airless paint sprayers will be perfect for outdoor jobs. In this type of sprayers, the paint is sprayed by the mean of the built-in pump (under the high pressure) and has a high spraying speed but the poor quality. Car painting can be performed by using air paint sprayers are provided with a small compressor and the paint is supplied through compressed air, which gives a thinner layer and the higher quality. But pneumatic spray guns (they also work by force of compressed air which is supplied through the hose), are suitable for large area painting. Due to high performance, pneumatic paint sprayers are considered to be the most effective.
Having chosen the air or pneumatic sprayer, you should pay attention to Principle of Operation. HP (High Pressure) technology allows you to paint fast but influences the quality of painting (sprays 45% of the material). In the models with the HVLP (High Volume / Low Pressure) technology, the air is under high pressure, and at the output, it is quite rarefied. This gives us a reduced fogging and a high percentage of the material spraying (up to 65%).
Speaking about Pressure, in most models it is limited to 8 bars! And if the pressure rises up to 8 bars, the compressor is automatically switched off. Only having reached the mark of 6 bars, the compressor resumes and pumps up the missing volume of air. In some of the best models, the pressure can reach 10 bars.
If you are going to use the sprayer with different materials, please, do pay attention to the features Types of nozzles and Compatible material. If you use metallic paint as a working material, the paint sprayer gun with the nozzle of 1.2-1.3 mm will be suitable for you. The best choice for varnish and acrylic paints is the sprayer gun with 1.4-1.5 mm nozzle. And finally, the paint sprayer gun with the biggest size (1.7-2.0 mm nozzle) will be perfect for the putty. As a rule, most of pneumatic and air spray guns work with almost all materials! But while choosing an airless sprayer, you must first become familiar with the range of materials suitable for it.
Having defined the basic parameters, you should pay attention to the Tank Position. The top position will give you a good weight distribution and speed. Containers located below are made from metal and their capacities are more than 1 l. Such position is considered to be the most suitable. But if you are going to carry out large-scale jobs, it is necessary to consider the models in which the intake is made from separate containers. Such models do not have any limits!
