Airless spray equipment has several advantages when used correctly over traditional methods of brushes and rollers. Not only will it saves you time and money but airless spray equipment will help to ensure a high quality finish, regardless of the size of job or the type of spray coating you are applying.
Of course, even with specialized efficient equipment such as airless sprayers, terrific results also depend on mastering technique. Even though the equipment can do its part to help control overspray, holding the sprayer at the optimal distance from the surface is essential. If you hold it too close, too much product will be applied in a small area and holding it too far away requires to many passes to completely coat the surface with material. Either way, you are wasting product and reducing the efficiency of your airless spray equipment.

There are other elements that will affect your technique and how well your jobs turn out. For instance, in addition to holding the sprayer the proper distance, you also need to keep it at a 90 degree angle to the surface to avoid uneven coverage and product waste. You need to time when you squeeze the trigger, starting to move the gun a split second before you trigger. Also, with airless equipment, more is not necessarily better. Crank the pressure control down as low as possible without creating “tails.” Not only will you get a more even and consistent finish, but using low pressure instead of maxing it out will reduce wear on the equipment and accessories.
