Airless Spray Cuts Painting Costs

Airless Spray will cut costs when it comes to painting your home. Unlike other operators, we do not thin our paint for Airless Spray, nor do we attempt coverage in one coat. Airless Spray applies a thicker, and more even coat of paint than traditional brush/roller painting. Airless Spray, in my hands, leaves a far superior finish than brush and roller painting. Not every job suits Airless Spray, usually due to proximity of other properties, excessive masking, or job size etc., and we are careful not to attempt jobs that do not suit spray painting. We also have HVLP spraying equipment, both air and turbine. Turbine HVLP generates almost no over spray, however it is slower than Airless. The advantage of HVLP is that it can be turned down until the spray exiting the tip is barely visible

Tip Size & Pressure

The correct tip size and pressure will determine the out come of any painting project attempted with airless spray. Many painters try to save too much time when using Airless Spray by belting through painting jobs with big tips and high pressures. When you discuss the effect of pressure,tip size, and droplet size on over spray volume with these guys their eyes glaze over. The picture to left is my over spray using Airless Spray, on one pass. As you can see it is pretty minimal.
