Whip End

Last updated: July 10, 2018

What Does Whip End Mean?

A whip end is a section of a paint or blasting hose that is softer and more malleable, which allows for easy connection to a container or bottle that is used to store the paint or other fluids.

A whip end is commonly found on hoses that are used for air spray guns. Air spray is a painting technique where pressurized paint is applied to a surface via a spray gun. With this method, coating products such as paint, varnish or ink are sprayed onto a metallic surface for corrosion prevention.

Corrosionpedia Explains Whip End

The air spray gun that is used in this process consists of an air compressor, a paint receptacle and a nozzle. Pulling the trigger causes the paint to combine with the stream of compressed air, discharging the paint as fine particles or droplets.
