Sometimes just one spray gun isn’t enough to meet your needs. This is particularly true if you’re doing some automotive work, top coats, or touch-ups.
Instead of spending your time cleaning up after each step of the job, consider an investment into this TCP Global HVLP Spray Gun Set.
Equipped with stainless steel needles and nozzles, you’ll have full adjustment over your spray patterns, air pressure, and fluid coverage for consistent results.
Here are some of the highlights we’ve noted from our experiences with this particular spray gun set.
The air pressure requirements are compatible with many portable air compressors. The operating pressure range for this TCP spray gun set are 29-50 PSI, which most compressors can handle pretty easily.
The CFM requirements range from 3.5 to 7.1, which again most compressors are able to handle. This means you can keep painting until you’re finished with a project instead of being forced to wait for the compressor to catch up.
The adjustment knob is perfectly placed… unless you’re a lefty. Left-handed users will have to cross-over with their other hand to adjust the knobs on this particular spray gun set.
It’s definitely not a deal-breaker, but it is an inconvenience that should be noted.
You’re going to need to watch your fan control. To be fair, spray guns at this price point aren’t designed to give you professional results.
You can create professional results, however, if you keep a close eye on your fan control. It isn’t as precise as we’d like it to be, but overall the job gets done and that’s what matters.
Cleaning these spray guns can be a massive chore. In many ways, we can see treating this spray gun as more of a disposable unit than anything else.
Taking the guns apart to clean them is a massively difficult chore.
It can be done if you give yourself enough time, but considering the price, you might just want to purchase a new gun for each new job you’ve got to do.
Be prepared for on-the-fly adjustments. We found that just a little bit of vibration can cause the knobs to turn just a bit and adjust the quality of the spray.
Depending on the compressor being used, it might be better to wait if your compressor is running before starting to paint once again.
Otherwise you might consider using two hands to control the TCP spray guns if you find this to be a bit of difficulty while using this product.
Extra paint usage can be a bit of an issue. Although these spray guns have an HVLP design, they use a little more paint than you’d expect.
We found the surface ratio of paint to atmosphere to be about 70/30, whereas other HVLP designs can be as high as 90/10.
It’s better than the 60% loss a high pressure sprayer causes, but you’ll still need to expect to use a little more paint than you might anticipate.
Overall the experience was pretty good. Cleaning up was the one negative we encountered with this unit.
If you need something affordable and don’t mind considering it somewhat disposable, then this TCP Global HVLP Spray Gun Set can meet your needs today.
