Another method of painting applications widely use is paint spraying. Paint spraying machines come in different types and range in ease of operation, from DIY to professional.

Types of Paint Spraying Machines

The main types of paint spraying equipment used for applying paint are:

  • HVLP Spraying
  • Airless Spraying
  • Electrostatic Spraying

HVLP Spraying

HVLP Spraying stands for High Volume Low Pressure. These machines are ideal for spraying where a fine finish is required. Also, these are only really designed for paint that is thinner. Thick heavy paints will struggle with these types of guns. Units can be purchased for DIY HVLP projects or commercial projects.

Airless Spraying

Airless spray machines are designed to pump out large volumes of paint in little time. They are ideal for applying heavy paints and are normally used on interior and exterior walls and ceilings within the home. This type of spraying can be used on fence and decks.

Electrostatic Spraying

Electrostatic spraying is a specialist method of spraying normally offered by professional painting contractors.

Other Accessories

Paint Edging

A paint Edging tool can help keep a barrier between what you are painting and what you are not painting. These are handy around trim and skirting that you would like to avoid covering. These are typically used when brushing.

Paint Pails

A paint pail or bucket is a useful bit of kit to have at hand.
