What pressure should I set my HVLP spray gun at?
We recommend painting between 25-30 psi while the trigger is pulled. You may see some paint tech sheets which refer to a painting air pressure of 8-10. Don’t set the spray gun to those as this measurement is referring to the air cap pressure right where the paint comes out.
Does DeVilbiss make a LVLP spray gun?
GAME CHANGING SPRAY GUN – Now it’s easier to paint with a great finish at home with the High-Volume-Low-Pressure spray guns by DeVilbiss which utilizes low pressure to atomize the material while outputting high volume and offers supreme finish quality.
What PSI should my paint gun be?
Setting the air pressure to about 28-29 PSI for clear will ensure you having great flow out. Most HVLP spray guns will use 10-14 scfm at 40 psi. This is volume of air pressure per cubic foot.
What is the maximum spray gun air cap pressure?
Yes. HVLP air caps are typically rated for a maximum gun inlet pressure to achieve 10 psi at the air cap.
Where is DeVilbiss made?
Devilbiss pro lite. Made in china,with a u.k. stamp on it.
What does LVMP stand for?
Low Volume Medium Pressure
LVMP stands for Low Volume Medium Pressure. LVMP spray guns take a smaller volume of air and produces a medium pressure. In essence, it uses less air than an HVLP air cap but with a slight bit more pressure than HVLP. The end result is that transfer efficiency is similar to HVLP air guns (around 60%).
What causes orange peel car paint?
Orange peel is typically the result of improper painting technique, and is caused by the quick evaporation of thinner, incorrect spray gun setup (e.g., low air pressure or incorrect nozzle), spraying the paint at an angle other than perpendicular, or applying excessive paint.
What PSI should I spray clear coat?
When spraying base coat clear coat systems, you want to spray at 26-29 PSI. You measure this PSI by pulling the trigger and letting air flow through the tip of your gun with your dial or digital readout saying 26-29 PSI.
What is 10 psi at the cap?
It should also be pointed out that the 10 psi at the air cap is pretty much generic to all hvlp guns. That 10 psi is a MAXIMUM air pressure recommended at the air cap. Look at it as a redline of a tachometer connected to a race engine. You don’t have to run that engine at the redline rpm all the time you drive it.
