Give up the brush and roller and start spray painting
While the brush and roller are convenient for painting a room or small surfaces, buildings for example are given a new aspect with the use of professional spray paints. The advantage of such devices is the fact that they come in all sizes and shapes and are extremely easy to use. Spray guns evolved from airbrushes and as a result they use compressed gas, meaning air, to coat the surface. Given the fact that spray painting is quicker and more efficient, it is no wonder why paint sprayer jobs are so popular. But why is the airbrush better than the regular brush?
A quick job
The rapidity is given by the fact that you get a better coverage in a matter of seconds, which is the result of the tiny particles that are emitted from the gun. The main types of diffusion machines are based on airpower and airless technology; basically, the first type requires an air gun and a compressor which favors the realization of smooth finishes and is thus adequate for applying delicate coats.
How they work
In addition to this, airbrushes are also employed in order to perform photo retouching, coating nails and even fine art. Moreover, for better results professionals use interchangeable heads that allow different diffusion patterns. Large surfaces such as homes are difficult to cover due to the fact the tiny spaces between the corners of the wall that cannot be reached with the traditional brush. Those that work on air-powered units rely on high pressure that pushes the paint into the air flow. In some cases the air generates a partial vacuum, as is the case with siphon-feed guns. On the other hand, pressure-feed guns conduct the compressed air into the reservoir.
The use of rollers can usually leave lines on the surface. Besides the uniform layer that is applied, you will not get any stains on the furniture, as long as the gun is being maneuvered with attention. Short passes can cause uneven finish and overlapping layers. No matter if you are using air-base or airless guns, it is highly necessary to prepare the work surface, in other terms to scrap and clean it. In addition to this, the areas that are not meant to be decorated should be covered so as not to get any stains on them.
Go for the airless model
The airless type is said to be more efficient at applying immaculate layers on wood and doors. Owing to the fact that with this type of gun the paint is pushed at high pressure, it is divided into a tiny pattern that can even cover liquids such as stains and latex house paint. All it takes is a little practice in order to fully master the airless sprayer that will aid you to cover large surface in a short time due to the fact that they inject paint from a bucket source of 5 gallons.
