Get the perfect finish with Graco HVLP spray machines

What is "HVLP"?

Ever wondered what "HVLP,"  means? HVLP stands for "high volume low pressure," denoting a painting technique that employs a "high air volume, low pressure" approach. Your ticket to achieving a refined and uniform spray pattern with minimal overspray. Perfect for contractors working on fine finish jobs.  So how this innovative technology work?

How Does Spraying with Graco HVLP Paint Sprayers Work?

  1. Airflow Dynamics: The process kicks off with a turbine generating airflow, channelling it into the paint container and through the gun nozzle.
  1. Paint Propulsion: As air flows into the paint container, it compresses, propelling the paint through a suction tube towards the nozzle.
  1. Atomization Mastery: Here's where the magic unfolds. Thanks to the optimal combination of high air volume and low air pressure, the paint undergoes atomization into the finest particles at the nozzle outlet, forming the spray jet.
  1. Mist Minimization: As both paint particles and an air stream travel through the nozzle, the paint particles remain enveloped by the air stream, akin to an air jacket. This ingenious design minimizes spray mist, ensuring superior coverage and minimal material loss – a win, win for our fine finish customers.
