Airless Paint Spray Safely

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.

Airless Spray Tip Tailing

Tailing when spraying with an airless paint sprayer is a phenomena where two distinct heavier lines of paint appear on either edge of the paint spray pattern. Inside these heavier edge lines there may be no paint or very little paint before the spray pattern reappears and often becomes heavier towards the center.

Tailing with airless paint sprayers can be the result of several different factors or a combination of factors.
