The trick to using a HVLP is to get the material thin enough but not too thin. Mine is a Croix (since taken over by Graco). The instructions recommended thinning the material to a consistency that when a stir stick is taken out of it, you wait until the paint stream coming off of it breaks into individual drops. Those drops should be about 1 second apart. For latex I use a 2mm fluid nozzle and a 1.4mm air cap.anyone have any tips on this? i'm not having much luck- specifically with thinning to the correct ratio to keep it from mucking up and still covering.
yes Mopaint has it right.........use it and you will be reborn!
Reading all the hype about them on here I'd like to try one too, except for the fact the most of the times I would need it is just for small jobs. The thought of flushing out the airless, getting it primed and cleaning it up again all take time. It only takes about 10 minutes to clean up my HVLP, I'm sure it would take considerably longer with an airless.... I gotta try those FF tips!
