Airless spray painting would be among the most popular methods used by professional painting contractors these days. Unlike conventional compressed air spray painting an airless spray gun has no compressed air involved in the atomisation of paint. A small airless spray tip restricts the flow of paint from the airless spray pump and as this high pressure flow of paint passes through the airless spray tip the paint is atomised into spray as the stream of paint strikes the atmosphere.
Serious injury can occur if an airless spray unit is not used correctly.
Even small handheld DIY airless spray guns reach pressures which can cause serious fluid injection injury. Never place any part of the body near nozzles or remove guards.
Always ensure that all components of your airless spray machine including airless paint spray hose, spray gun and airless spray tip are rated to a working pressure that exceeds the output of your airless spray pump.
