HVLP Spray Guns

Spray guns are an efficient way to apply paint to surfaces, but using the correct type for your application is crucial to getting the results you want. Traditional spray guns are a little too aggressive for certain surfaces, such as automobiles. You’ll end up wasting a lot of your paint on overspray, and won’t achieve the fine finish your ride deserves.

HVLP spray guns are the perfect solution. They offer precision control and efficiency, providing a fine and even spray pattern with less overspray. 

What are HVLP Spray Guns?

HVLP stands for High Volume, Low Pressure. HVLP spray guns use a high volume of air at low pressure to atomize paint or other coatings and deliver a smooth and controlled finish with less overspray. HVLP guns are popular in the automotive industry, and widely used in woodworking, furniture, and other DIY projects.

The HVLP paint gun works by drawing air from an air compressor through a turbine or fan. The air is then forced through a nozzle, which creates a vacuum that draws paint from a reservoir into the air stream. The air and paint are then mixed and atomized, creating a fine mist that is sprayed onto the surface.

Benefits of HVLP Guns

HVLP spray guns offer several advantages over traditional spray guns, including:

  • Reduced Overspray. HVLP guns produce a fine mist of paint, resulting in minimal overspray and less wasted paint. The paint you do use ends up on your car instead of the driveway or surrounding bushes! 
  • Enhanced Finish. Because the paint is atomized more evenly, HVLP guns provide a fine, smooth, and even finish that is ideal for achieving professional-grade results.
  • Improved Transfer Efficiency. HVLP spray guns boast 80% – 90% transfer efficiency, offering better paint coverage with minimal waste. Airless sprayers average only 50% paint transfer efficiency, making HVLP guns more cost-effective. 
  • Reduced Health Risks. HVLP spray guns produce less mist and fumes, reducing the risk of inhaling harmful solvents. The lower pressure mitigates the risk of skin injuries that may occur with traditional airless sprayers. 
  • Environmental Friendliness. The reduced overspray and improved transfer efficiency contribute to a more eco-friendly painting process.

HVLP Spray Gun Applications

HVLP spray guns are versatile tools suitable for a wide range of applications, including:

  • Painting and refinishing cars, boats, and other vehicles, including basecoats, clearcoats, and touch-ups
  • Painting furniture and other home decor
  • Applyings stains and finishes to wood
  • Applying primers and sealers

Choosing the Right HVLP Paint Gun

When selecting an HVLP automotive spray gun, consider the following factors:

  • Nozzle Size. The nozzle size determines the size of the spray pattern. Different nozzle sizes are suitable for different types of coatings; smaller nozzles produce a finer finish, while larger nozzles create a wider spray pattern. Choose a nozzle size that matches your intended application.
  • Air Pressure. The recommended air pressure for HVLP spray guns is typically between 10 and 30 psi. Using too much air pressure will result in overspray, while using too little air pressure can lead to a poor finish. Ensure your air compressor can provide the necessary air pressure for the spray gun to operate optimally.
  • Material Compatibility. Make sure the HVLP gun is compatible with the type of paint or coating you plan to use.
  • Ergonomics and Adjustability. To achieve precise control, look for an HVLP automotive spray gun with adjustable settings for spray pattern, fluid flow, and air pressure.

Maintenance and Care of HVLP Spray Guns

Proper use and maintenance will ensure longevity, consistent performance, and superior results. Hold the spray gun the correct distance from the surface, typically 6” – 8”, and move the gun smoothly back and forth to avoid drips and runs. Wear a respirator, gloves, and safety glasses at all times when using an HVLP spray gun.

Regularly clean the gun after each use, following the manufacturer's instructions. Use appropriate cleaning solutions and ensure all parts are thoroughly dried before storage.
