Are HVLP spray guns any good?
The high pressure created by the pump allows the guns to spray unthinned latex paint, but it also creates a lot of overspray and fine particles of paint dust in the air. For less overspray and a finer finish on interior projects, HVLP is a better choice.
What is the difference between HVLP and hte spray guns?
So a typical HVLP gun might allow two thirds of the paint in the cup to hit the panel. That ratio is potentially even higher with the new generation of HTE guns. Because more paint hitting the metal means less paint wasted and less paint in the atmosphere.
How do you thin latex paint for a sprayer?
Here’s what you do:
- Pour the paint into the bucket.
- Add ½ cup of water for every gallon of paint.
- Mix thoroughly.
- Check the thickness by running the paint through a funnel. If it flows freely through the funnel, you know the paint is thinned enough.

Can you clean a paint gun with reducer?
Most folks don’t have a paint gun cleaning cabinet, so the practical way to clean your gun is to dismantle it, and soak it in cleaner.

Never leave it pressurised. But you can leave it overnight leaving the gun and intake tube in a bucket of water. Moving the airless a 3/4 inch cap nut fits the end of the intake tube and find those roller wet bags from d.d convenient to put over it so paint doesn’t go everywhere as I usually clean it at home.
