Glad to see this feedback on the low pressure tips.

@RH That door looks good, Dan. I thought I'd spotted a major blemish when I enlarged the picture, but turns out it's on my screen. That's what ya get with grandkids and a touch-screen computer. Little chocolate eating heathens.

The curved side of the seat goes toward the tip, the seal side to the gun. Hope this helps.

Now that's funny right there.

Maybe that's why I always need a mallet to get them in... hmmmm...

My SW Rep was telling me you need to have a regulator at your gun in order to ensure the correct PSI for these tips. Anyone else heard anything like that?

Most SW Reps don't know crap.

I had one that told me the reason Emerald didn't hide well was because I used a microfiber roller cover. He said I needed to use a polyester roller cover.

He might have been drunk, high or something. I will never use a polyester cover ever again.

Used a new FFLP tip for spraying a door this morning. Changed the seat and tried it out. Stupid thing spit like crazy. I threw in a blue tip with the FFLP seat and finished the first coat on the door. When I tried showing My PPG paint rep the problem I was having the FFLP tip, the tip was spraying fine with no spits or lines. I was spraying breakthrough with a 312 FFLP tip with a Graco 495 and had the pressure around 1/3 of the way up. Wasn't much over spray and the paint laid down nice. I would defiantly buy this tips again. Will post pic of the door tomorrow when its done.

I have a feeling that the blue tips pushed the seat into position stopping the spits. They may be a bit bigger. Going to measure them to find out.

No regulator was needed

Would it be worth gently lubricating the seat to improve the seal and/or using a new tip housing?

Good to know it wasn't just me having the spitting issues - I guess.

Just a quick update - went and sprayed a fireplace mantle this morning. Shooting unthinned Kelly Moore Dura-Poxi Acrylic Enamel with the 310 FFLP tip. Whereas I had trouble with it spitting a bit on my first try a week or so ago (shooting Pro-Classic Acrylic), this time I turned up the pressure more and that seemed to eliminate the problem. Had the pressure knob at about two thirds up - at about 1:00 on the dial (sorry, but no guage on my 395).

Did a really nice job with very little overspray or fog in the area. Was able to get a wet look but with no runs or sags on the vertical surfaces. Going back to do a second coat in an hour or so and will try to snag some pics.

I used a 518 fflp tip do paint an exposed basement ceiling with black acrylic dryfall. Pressure was about 1/3 of the way up the dial.

Nope. Although, spraying a old basement ceiling black I would not be able to see it if it did. I might try priming out a basement with it tomorrow.

My first experience with a fflp 310 hasn't been as good as I had hoped.
I have been making samples for an upcoming cabinet project. The paint is Breakthrough gloss in a medium grey, 250 VOC version. I did the first color with a 410 FF and all was good. They wanted another color and by that time the 310 fflp had arrived so I tried it out. It did operate lower then typical pressure as expected but the issue was the finish. While the regular FF looked great the FFLP gave a "pixelated" finish. As opposed to a consistent gloss it had a shimmer almost like a metallic finish. All prep and application were the same with a nice wet coat applied to each. They looked the same wet but dry different. So I shot 2 more doors one with each tip as before. Same thing happened. It actually has a interesting look but it's not right.

Is it possible that it is shearing the product and breaking the resins too fine?

Maybe they won't be compatible with certain finishes or sheens. I'm going to try Advance, Breakthrough satin and some others as I have time.

I'll try to get some pics up. Not sure it'll show it well though.
