Spray Painting / Air-less spray painting
Spray painting is a painting technique where a device sprays a coating (paint) through the air onto a surface
A basic spray painting system consists of a conventional spray painting gun, a pressurized paint container, a compressed air system, and flexible tubes connecting them all together
This process occurs when paint is applied to an object through the use of an air-pressurized spray gun. The air gun has a nozzle, paint basin, and air compressor. When the trigger is pressed the paint mixes with the compressed air stream and is released in a fine spray.
Advantages of Airless spray paintings are
The coating penetrates better into pits and crevices
A uniform thick coating is produced, reducing the number of coats required
A very “wet” coating is applied, ensuring good adhesion and flow-out.
