Types of paint sprayer

Paint sprayers provide a faster and more efficient way to coat surfaces evenly compared to traditional methods. They therefore save you both time and effort. Pneumatic paint sprayers and airless paint sprayers are the two variations which currently dominate the market.


1. Pneumatic Paint Sprayers

Pneumatic paint sprayers operate by utilizing compressed air to propel the paint onto the surface. They are effective for smaller, more precise tasks. There small size and relatively low air pressure makes them efficient in paint usage and clean up requirement.

While they can be effective for intricate projects such as cabinetry and furniture refinishing, they come with some drawbacks. The requirement of an air compressor or turbine can make them costly. Compared to their airless counterpart, they are slower and deliver a lower quality finish.


2. Airless Paint Sprayers

Now, let's shift our focus to the game-changer: airless paint sprayers. These innovative tools eliminate the need for compressed air, offering a faster and more professional finish. Here's why airless paint sprayers stand out:
