What Does Air-assisted Airless Spraying Mean?

Air-assisted airless spraying is a type of spray gun coating application that uses high fluid pressure to atomize and propel a coating onto a surface to be protected from corrosion or degradation. It includes the use of an air cap to deliver a small amount of air to aid pattern precision during application.


Corrosionpedia Explains Air-assisted Airless Spraying

Air-assisted airless spraying uses a lower fluid pressure compared to other types of spray guns, therefore reducing equipment wear and making it a more cost-effective option for coating applications. It is a faster, more precise and more versatile spraying option as it can be used with a variety of coating materials.

Proper safety precautions should be adhered to when operating an air-assisted airless spray gun during contact with any component such as the motor, pump or outlet.
