In this article, you will receive some more information about how a paintsprayer works, what paint works with a paintsprayer and what you need to keep in mind when using it.
What is a paintsprayer?
A paintsprayer is an incredibly useful product made for applying emulsion paint, as you could have probably guessed. Not only does it save a lot of time, but it has also makes it easier to reach the hard-to-get places you would not, or at least not without a lot of hassle, be able to reach.
Starting up the paintsprayer can take a small amount of time because it’s an electrical appliance. After a short while, you will still be able to do the job in a fraction of the time it would take if you were to paint the whole thing by hand.
Which paint types work with a paintsprayer?
You will be able to use most paint types, among other things you can use all types of water-based and synthetic-based paint. Besides water- and synthetic based paint types, you can obviously also use most, if not all of the emulsion paint types. Just be sure that the paint which you are looking to use in your paintsprayer does not contain any solids.
There are always exceptions though, one of them being the type of paintsprayer you have got. For more information on the paint types and their paintsprayer counterparts you would be wise to look up the brand of the paintsprayer you currently have and what it’s compatible with.
What to keep in mind
When you are using the paintsprayer for the first time, there are a couple of things you should keep in mind:
- Avoid overspray by keeping the paintsprayer nozzle perpendicular to the wall
- Tape off any areas you don’t want any paint on
- Read the paint instructions and the paintsprayer manual
If you keep to the points listed above, you should have absolutely no problems with the use of a paintsprayer. The only thing you need to think of is cleaning the paintsprayer once you’re completely done with the painting job. Cleaning the paintsprayer will take around 20 minutes, after which it’s ready to be used again.
