Fine Finish

Spray Airless, HVLP

The main functional difference between these two sprayers is the way the paint is atomized when sprayed. An airless sprayer does not use a compressor. Instead, it uses a pressurized pump and piston to siphon paint to the gun through a fluid line, forcing it through a small orifice in the spray tip to atomize it.

An HVLP (high volume, low pressure) sprayer uses a compressor, or a turbine, to atomize paint. This sprayer holds paint in a cup attached to the gun or in a remote pressurized pot. The spray gun uses a fluid needle and nozzle while an airless uses a spray tip. Tell us what you need and we tell you which to use.
