Before you purchase  your spray gun, you need to know...

Choosing the correct tip size gun to spray the material - 
1 . Read your material Technical Data Sheet
2. Find the numbers for Viscosity

    e.g. Viscosity - Ford #4 at 77°F/25°C: 10-14 seconds

    Or the suggestion like:

    Spray gun set-up: Application pressure:

Gravity: 1.3 – 1.5 mm Siphon: 1.6 – 1.8 mm 30–40 psi (2-3 bar) at the air inlet HVLP max 10 psi (0.7 bar) at the air cap

3. Use the Reference as below:

Suggested Tip Sets    

        

LC   Low Viscosity (16 sec. Ford #4 and Lower)  

 

.8-1.0 pressure or mini gun / 1.0-1.3 Gravity Feed   i.e. stains dyes, automotive base coats, thin woodworking

 

LCMC    Low to Medium Viscosity (16-28 sec. Ford #4)     

 

1.0-1.2 pressure or mini gun / 1.3-1.5 Gravity Feed       i.e. Automotive Clears, Plane and Boat Urethanes, thin woodworking

 

MC  Medium Viscosity (30-40 sec. Ford #4)  

 

1.2-1.3 Pressure or Mini Gun / 1.5-1.8 Gravity Feed    i.e. wood standard lacquers and enamels, single stage old enamels

 

HC  High Viscosity (45-54 sec. Ford #4) 

 

1.5-1.8 Pressure Feed or mini gun / 1.6-2.5 Gravity Feed    i.e. latex paint / Industrial Coatings

 

VHC       Very High Viscosity (55 sec. Ford #4 and Higher) 

 

1.7-2.8 Pressure Feed / Gravity Feed 2.0-3.6             i.e. gel coat - industrial paints and primers
