HVLP Spraying

Question

Any thoughts on HVLP spraying. Conversion gun or turbine. Water based or lacquer. Steve Colello

Answer

Marty Milkovits replies: The turbine driven systems will not atomize as well as a compressor.  For spraying thin stains and finishes either system works fine but you will need a compressor driver gun if you will be using any of the catalyzed or epoxy finishes.
