Introduction to Airless Spray
Airless spray simplifies the painting process in a couple ways.
- First, it usually speeds up jobs that normally require several litres of paint. The application using airless spray is usually twice as fast as with a roller or brush.
- Second, if you want a glass-smooth finish, the airless sprayer can lay the paint on flawlessly. This is particularly suitable for woodwork, doors and soft furnishing.
How does it work?
Airless sprayers work by pumping paint, lacquer, varnish or thicker paints at very high pressure. It can reach up to 3,000 psi. The paint runs through the hose and out a small hole in the spray gun tip. The gun tip is designed in such a way that it breaks up the paint evenly in tiny droplets for a very smooth finish. Stovrite Specialist Coatings use different spray gun tips for different paint types and thickness. We can spray thin liquids like stain, lacquer and varnish or thicker liquids like solvent based paints. This makes it a very versatile painting technique.
There are lots of airless paint sprayers on the market, from small home-use sprayers to top of the range systems such as Merkur Pump. We use a system based on Merkur Pump and G40 Gun to provide the highest of quality.
Airless spray uses
The airless spray technique is ideal for furniture manufactures and also joineries. It is an excellent solution for this type of products because it can spray light to medium viscosity. Furthermore, it can use many types of liquids, be it water or solvent based lacquers and paints.
In conclusion, it is recommended to get very high quality paint finish!
