What are the controls on a spray gun?
Most spray guns have three basic controls that will allow you to adjust for optimum performance on your projects. These controls are: the fluid adjustment, the fan control, and the air micrometer (see diagram).
What is the correct pressure for spray painting?
What is the best air pressure for spray painting? Again, it’s essential you check your specific model’s recommendations, but your HVLP spray gun PSI will likely sit between 25-30 PSI for something like using an air compressor for spraying cars, rising to 40 PSI in some cases where higher atomisation is needed.
Why is my spray gun pulsing?
Most sputtering is caused by a poor seal between the fluid tip and the gun and the tip should be removed after the gun is used every time and cleaned using the proper tools. In most guns there is a seal behind the tip that can be replaced from time to time.
What PSI should I spray clear coat?
When spraying base coat clear coat systems, you want to spray at 26-29 PSI. You measure this PSI by pulling the trigger and letting air flow through the tip of your gun with your dial or digital readout saying 26-29 PSI.
How do you fix a spray gun splatter?
This often happens with very thin material like stains that you are trying to keep coating to a small amount. To remedy this try applying a little more pressure to the coating and then using your fluid adjustment knob to restrict fluid to the spray gun.
What would you do if your paint does not spray from your gun or comes out blotchy?
If your paint gun is not spraying paint at all, it’s most likely due to a clog either in the air vent hole or the hose. Clean any dried paint with a toothpick, and use a cleaning solvent to clear any remaining gunk. If you’ve cleaned your paint gun and find that it still isn’t spraying, take a look at the air supply.
What pressure do you spray 2K paint?
50 psi should be fine, i agree that your top coat should be thinner to allow the paint to settle quicker but in my opinion, you cant beat three or four thin clear coats with 2K paint for a deep shine, and it will also protect your colour coats from damage.
How many Litres per minute does a spray gun use?
The 1.5mm nozzle is suitable for use with paint, top coats and sealers. You have ultimate control to get the perfect finish with the air regulator valve and the fan and fluid adjustment dials. An air compressor with a minimum delivery rate of 85 litres per minute is needed to run this spray gun.
