Paint Sprayers for Home

All these HVLP paint sprayers reviews include thinning directions and viscosity to assist identify the correct amount of solvent-- in our case, water-- to add. We began by thinning a few gallons of water-base paint enough to satisfy every sprayer producer's suggestion so we might compare the sprayers with the exact same viscosity of paint.

We sprayed a band of paint for 8 seconds with the spray tip held 1 ft. from the surface. We compared the coverage, spray pattern and paint particle size. This offered us a great idea of each sprayer's performance. Next we practiced on walls and raised-panel doors to get some real-world experience. We compared elements and features. Keep reading to see what we discovered.

Graco, which has actually made professional-grade sprayers for years, has ventured into the customer market with this HVLP sprayer. And you can tell Graco has experience making sprayers.

Functions we like include the spray-pattern adjusting lever on the front of the gun, the pro-style metal spray tip and onboard storage of gun and tube. Graco includes a DVD with guidelines for utilizing the gun. This sprayer got high marks for the quality of the spray and well-planned functions.

Wagner's System includes a different turbine and tube, and 2 "front ends" that snap onto the spray gun manage, enabling you to spray thin and thick materials effectively. The extra pressure supplied by the stand-alone 540-watt turbine supplies a little better spray quality than you obtain from the sprayers with onboard turbines. This kit is a good choice for maximum flexibility, however the fine-finish sprayer still doesn't rival the surface quality of the Graco or Rockler.

Wagner has a long history of making small, consumer-grade sprayers and offers many designs of both hvlp-type and airless sprayers. If you don't want to spend more than $100 on a sprayer, we think this one is a great option.
