A Guide To Paint Sprayers
Paint sprayers come in a variety of different styles, and each one of them is suited to a particular purpose and the type of paint being used for painting. If the right sprayer is paired with the right paint and the right job, then the painter can get their work done in no time flat. However, if a painter tries using the wrong paint sprayer with the wrong kind of paint, or for a job it wasn’t designed to do, then the results can be disastrous. That’s why we’ve decided to write this guide that will help painters pair the right paint sprayer with the right job to get the results they want to get.
Paint Sprayer Types
When it comes to paint-sprayers, there are three basic types the DIY enthusiast or professional painter can consider. There are airless paint sprayers, HVLP paint sprayers, and pneumatic air sprayers. To ensure that all of our readers are familiar with each of these paint sprayer types, we’re going to take a quick and very basic look at each one.
Airless Paint Sprayers
Airless paint sprayers are some of the most widely used sprayers. They’re designed to pump paint at extremely high pressure, so the droplets fan out evenly and provide a uniform coat to the surface being painted. These sprayers are capable of handling thicker paints better than other types of sprayers and are usually used for painting exterior surfaces such as fences or decks, or interior surfaces such as ceilings and walls.
HVLP sprayers don’t use the same amount of pressure as airless paint sprayers but instead rely on air pressure that’s more sustainable and stable. This allows the paint to move slower, and as a result, more paint droplets end up sticking to the surface being painted. This results in a silky smooth and even finish. These sprayers also tend to use less paint than airless models, primarily because they waste less paint. This model is well suited for painting doors, trim, cabinets, and molding. If there’s one thing that painters should avoid when using these sprayers are varnishes, lacquers or other thick paints.
Pneumatic Air Sprayers
These type of paint sprayers use compressed air to deliver paint. This results in an even and smooth finish. That’s why it’s often the go-to choice for people who need to paint cabinets or furniture. Unfortunately, when using these type of paint sprayers, the painter has to be extremely cautious and take the proper precautions to prevent paint from being sprayed over things other than the object being painted. That’s because these sprayers have a bad tendency of over spraying, especially if they’re used in a less than thoughtful manner. Anyone considering purchasing one of these sprayers will need a compressor and a paint hose, too.

Now that we know the three different paint sprayers that are available to painters, it’s time to dig into a few parting tips so that you can get the most out of your new sprayer. The following tips will ensure that your paint sprayer will perform up to expectations when you use it.
