SUPER FAST HVLP CASE
"Great Setup!...Thanks for your answers and recommendations. I received the SXK1 and flex cup kit from you last week. Just shot an aircraft belly and wings in primer and silver. The gun is excellent and the cup system is unbelievably easy to use. I’m thrilled with the way it works. I was lying on my back, shooting upside down onto the bottom of this plane – it works beautifully! Mix is easy and clean-up so simple. (I just throw the cup away and clean up the business end of the gun.) It’s a snap! I’m sold."
Our Least Expensive Setup, Compares to Finishline III
d overspray was a problem. A new technology was introduced: High-volume, Low-pressure (HVLP). The pressure used in these systems to atomize the paint is much lower (3-5psi). The paint cup is pressurized forcing material to the nozzle. As a result, the overspray problem is minimized. Most of the paint actually adheres to the surface being painted instead of bouncing off and collecting elsewhere. To achieve this advantage a HVLP spray gun must be machined to a higher degree than an ordinary spray gun. Hence the higher cost of very good HVLP guns. The HVLP spray gun is designed to gather the air inside the gun and send it downstream with as little pressure drop as possible. This means careful machining must be carried out to reduce turbulence that impedes airflow. In older pressure guns if a passage was too small you simply increased the pressure and solved the problem. That means conventional spray guns do not have to be machined to exact specifications.
Advantages of the HVLP system. 1) overspray is reduced dramatically. That means a saving in coatings typically of about 35-50%. 2) HVLP systems enable the beginning painter to achieve a professional looking finish. They are easier to use than conventional spray outfits. Individuals who have experience painting with conventional spray outfits will have to learn the different techniques required to use HVLP systems. HVLP systems expend heavier amounts of material than conventional guns. This, of course, means different techniques.
Until Now. Now there is an option of Reduced Pressure Guns, these guns act similar to standard conventional guns and therefore no new learning technique is necessary. However, with the incorporatino of modern technology they too produce lower overspray levels similar to HVLP. They are very popular among older painters.
