CONSUMERS

Common wagner or consumer like tools are meant for spraying the interior or exterior of homes. They are not concerned with fine finish quality but rather speed and application on large surface areas. While the price of a wagner and similar power painters are attractive they are really for differing purposes. Professional Spray guns and HVLP spray guns are for people looking for factory finishes on their cabinets, trim and crown molding, doors, mantles, frames, etc. They can be relatively inexpensive i.e around $100 and up, but they produce a finish that looks like it came directly from the factory. And not like it was painted by a brush or handyman.

At SprayGunWorld we specialize in spray equipment. The Latex market is not as big and therefore we had to look hard to put together some great recommendations for those who want to spray their house with thicker house paints and even rustolum. As always, many of our guns come with multiple tip options so you can do other work as well. This greatly increases the value of your purchase from us. We carry most of the different sizes for your gun, while others do not or don't even know what size you should spray with.

Ask your local salesmen what size in mm or SAE that he recommends for latex and you will get all sorts of strange answers from, it can't be done, to 1.8mm all wrong.

You will still have to thin your paint by 5%-25% to get greater movement in your paint. We recommend a mixture of water and Benjamin Moores Extender or Floetro for waterbased latex paints. There is also penatrol for solvent based enamels.

CONTRACTORS

Get Rid of that Messy Airless. Get Flat Smooth Pro Finishes!


Many professional contractors use Airless Units. These units are too powerful and crude for fine finishing on trim, doors, and cabinets. Look below at what professionals use to get hi-end homes looking great! For just a few hundred you can invest in a unit that can make ANYONE get results like a top hi-end contractor. You just need the right tools.

Small and Medium Contractors or Remodeling: 20 pounds of equipment sound nice? Don't deal with all the overspray, weight and excessive uncontrollable power of an airless system. An great alternative to remodelers and small and medium contractors is Turbine HVLP. These rigs can produce and acceptable wet and fast 12"-14" fan mimicking the work of an airless BUT with less overspray. HVLP is all the rage. SEE HERE

Already Own a Compressor? Take a look at our New CONTRACTOR HVLP units SEE HERE


LARGE CONTRACTORS AND CONSTRUCTION: Don't want to waste 70% of your material with Dangerous Airless Equipment. Wondering if there is a better, less dangerous way to paint with Speed? An AAA will give you the option of both Airless work AND Air Assisted fine finish work in one. Why duplicate your equipment. If you are starting out or just want to upgrade an AAA will give you BOTH in ONE UNIT with speed, greater control, less overspray and Fine Finishing Capability. A Top Hi-End Professional Solution. SEE HERE.

AIRLESS HVLP - already have an airless pump. Don't want to spend the money on an AAA pump - SEE HERE

TURBINE UNITS - Don't duplicate your tools, if you are going to invest in a rig, why not get one that can do both speed AND fine finish. We also carry Fuji Turbines with pressure pot hook ups. allows you to mimic 3 jobs in one - EVERYTHING in one gun - (airless speed, On location HVLP fine finish and Shop HVLP fine finish with a large compressor). - SEE HERE

HVLP Turbines ALSO gives you the option of doing BOTH fine finish work and walls and ceiling by just changing the tip set. NO you cannot change the tip set on an airless to get as good a finish. Few exceptions apply but it is not worth the hassle, instead, just use the correct equipment a turbine HVLP.

Here is our advice
