Spray Head

What Does Spray Head Mean?

A spray head refers to the outlet attached to a spray gun, through which surface preparation fluids such as coatings, linings and paints are ejected. The fluid is passed through the spray head and applied to surfaces to prevent corrosion and for decorative purposes.


Corrosionpedia Explains Spray Head

Spray heads consist of three main components: a fluid needle, a fluid tip and an air cap.

Spray heads are primarily used on spray guns, however they can be affixed to other corrosion prevention tools such as spray pots.

Spray heads vary in terms of their size and handling capacity. Small heads are ideal for small jobs or metal corners, and are convenient for their ability to provide precise fluid control. Large heads are ideal for industrial mass-production applications.
