Due to the speed at which this method of painting can be carried out, airless spraying has become very popular when coating facades of any scale. This application method greatly reduces the time a surface can be coated when compared to other forms of painting; saving clients money and minimising business downtime.
Why Use Airless Spraying?
Airless Spraying is carried out using a specially designed system and nozzle. Air is injected throughout the paint, making the stream level and consistent, resulting in an extremely clean finish. The system allows for all types of walls and ceilings to be coated effectively, no matter the height or size.
How Is Airless Spraying Applied?
Paint is pumped through the airless spray system alongside compressed air; which results in the atomisation of particles, breaking the bonds which usually bind the paint together. This means that the fluid is dispersed into small droplets in a fan-like motion, which enables any surface to be coated much more evenly and at a quicker rate.
Electro Static Spraying
For a more precise form of paint spraying, this method is our application of choice, particularly when it comes to painting detailed and specific spaces. Electric fields are formed which create the perfect partnership between the surface and spray gun, meaning the paint attracts to any surface much like a magnet.
Why Use Electro Static Spraying?
Due to the use of electrostatic energy, this application is ideal for reaching hard to see spaces and crevasses. As the paint is directed at specific areas, and strongly attracts to certain spaces – less paint is released, eradicating overspray and leaving a even finish.
How Is Electro Static Applied?
Using an expertly designed electro static gun, the paint particles are electrically charged as compressed air forces the fluid through the nozzle. The fine spray of atomised paint conducts a positive charge, which is attracted to the negatively charged surface, making this method a highly targeted form of spray painting.
HVLP stands for High Volume Low Pressure, which essentially means that while the paint is sprayed using compressed air, a higher volume of air is used to propel the paint at a lower pressure. A lower pressure means that there is less chance of paint wastage and overspray.
Why Use HVLP Spraying?
As well as being environmentally friendly, HVLP spraying is a highly efficient form of surface coating. The lower pressure makes for a spray painting technique that is easier to control, and target to specific areas; making this method a great choice when a more precise finish is required.
How Is HVLP Applied?
Where conventional systems work with at a higher pressure, paint is applied at a much lower pressure via an HVLP system. The paint is atomised with compressed air, as with other applications, ensuring a fine mist spray and even finish.
