Furthermore, how does an HVLP sprayer work?
HVLP, or High-Volume/Low Pressure, uses a high volume of air (typically between 15-26 CFM) delivered at low pressure (10 PSI or less at the air cap) to atomize paint into a soft, low-velocity pattern of particles. The HVLP spray gun resembles a standard spray gun in shape and operation.
Similarly, can you paint a car with a HVLP sprayer? Not only do HVLP guns do a better job of not spraying excess paint onto the surface of a car, but they also have better “transfer efficiency.” This term refers to the amount of paint that is shot out of the gun and that then sticks to the surface of the car.
Similarly, you may ask, what is the difference between HVLP and airless sprayers?
In an HVLP (which stands for “high volume, low pressure”), air pumped from an air compressor or turbine atomizes paint. In an airless sprayer, a piston pressurizes the material, which sprays out of an orifice smaller than that found on an HVLP nozzle. The high pressure and tight squeeze shear the paint into particles.
What is better HVLP or LVLP?
HVLP, which stands for “high volume low pressure,” are the most commonly used spray guns today. They are highly efficient and offer a controlled spray with little overspray. LVLP spray guns, which stands for “low volume low pressure,” use less air volume than HVLP paint guns.
