||A comparison of conventional and high volume-low pressure spray-painting guns
||Mar. 1996, Vol.57, No.3, p.304-310. Illus. 19 ref.
||Two coats of paint were applied to a car body shell in a downdraft spray-painting booth using both a gravity-fed conventional gun and a gravity-fed high volume-low pressure (HVLP) gun. Measurements were made of particulate overspray and solvent vapour concentrations, film thickness on the car body, and mass of paint. The film thickness per mass of paint for the HVLP gun was 33% higher than that for the conventional gun. The particulate overspray and solvent vapour concentrations were both higher with the conventional gun. The use of HVLP spray-painting guns should be encouraged.
