Here at Paint Sprayer Reviews we are big fans of the HVLP sprayer when it is used for the right applications. With spray technology getting better and better, the HVLP sprayer is now replacing conventional spray guns in lots of shops and job sites as the preferred spray method for fine finish work.
With its tremendous versatility, an HVLP can be used to shoot everything from furniture to exterior shake shingle siding. This is why it has become so popular with do-it-yourselfers and professionals alike.
HVLP stands for High Volume Low Pressure. The reduced pressure allows the operator to better control where the paint goes and reduces overspray. This also allows for almost any room with normal ventilation to serve as a spray area without the need for expensive exhaust and ventilation systems found in traditional spray booths.
This is largely due to the fact that with lower pressure the air is not filled with so much overspray, allowing for the painted surface to dry without flaws from overspray landing on it from being in the air.
This video shows an excellent tutorial/demo of the Fuji HVLP model in use. This is one of the HVLP pumps I’ve written about on Paint Sprayer Reviews and is also the highest rated model for the professional or homeowner that demands a smooth finish.
