Spray Painting: Conventional Air Spray

Objective:

To recognize and describe the principles of conventional air spray paint equipment.

  • Most heavy-duty industrial coatings are applied by airless spray, however, conventional air spray is used for light-duty coatings, especially where a high quality finish is required.
  • Conventional air spraying is also referred to as air spray, air-assisted spray or low-pressure spraying.
  • As the name implies, conventional air spray equipment requires air to assist with paint application.
