FAQs

What is the difference between an airless sprayer and an HVLP sprayer?

A)  Airless Sprayers atomize coatings by forcing the product through a small tip opening at very high fluid pressure. The fluid pressures range from 1200-3600 PSI. Airless sprayers are capable of spraying larger surfaces at higher speeds. Airless sprayers have more overspray than HVLP which is the amount of product that does not adhere to the surface you are spraying.

B)  HVLP sprayers are classified as a finishing tool. The pressure from the cup supplies paint to the gun, where a high volume of low pressure air intersects with the paint stream breaking the paint into small particles called atomization. Since the spray pressures are much lower, the atomized paint has less bounce back. This means less overspray and better control.

What is the difference between the Flexio 570/590 and the Flexio 2000/3000?

The main difference between the FLEXiO 570/ 590 and FLEXiO 2000/3000 is the design of the iSpray front end. The new nozzle designed iSpray front end will provide paint control with a uniform and contained pattern. Also, the new paint flow dial is numbered for precise and easy setting for the range of coatings the FLEXiO can spray and easy clean up.

What is the difference between the Flexio 2000/3000 and the Flexio 4000/5000?

A)  The FLEXiO 2000 and 3000 are handheld sprayers in which the turbine is held in your hand. The FLEXiO 2000 comes with the new nozzle designed iSpray and is a two speed (hi and lo) sprayer. The FLEXiO 3000 comes with the new nozzle designed iSpray, the Detail Finish Nozzle, and has 9 speed settings.

B)  The FLEXiO 4000 and 5000 are stationary sprayers in which the turbine sits on the ground delivering air power through the hose to spray coatings with adjustable control to maximize coverage and minimize overspray. They both come with the new nozzle designed iSpray and Detail Finish Nozzles.  With the turbine sitting on the ground and not in your hand, there is less operator fatigue. The FLEXiO 4000 has a 15 ft. air hose and comes with an accessory bag to store your hose and nozzles in.  The FLEXiO 5000 has an 11.5 ft. air hose. The turbine base holds the hose and nozzles for easy storage

Why does air continuously come out when I turn my sprayer on?

The FLEXiO 690, 890,4000 and 5000 are bleeder guns. With a bleeder gun air flows continuously; the trigger only starts and stops the paint flow.

What is the iSpray nozzle used for?

The iSpray Nozzle, which will spray unthinned coatings including latex paint and stains, is ideal for big surface projects such as spraying walls, sheds, fences etc… It will provide a roller-like or slightly stippled finish.

What is the Detail finish nozzle used for?

The Detail finish nozzle is best used on your fine finish projects such as spraying cabinets, furniture, doors, trim etc. It will provide a smoother, finer finish than the iSpray Nozzle. Depending on your material, the Detail Finish Nozzle may require some thinning of your material in order to spray properly.

What types of coatings can be sprayed through the Flexio series?

A)  The FLEXiO Series will spray water-based or oil-based paints and stains.

B)  Do not spray or clean with liquids having a flash point of less than 100ºF (38ºC), reference the paint can. Flash point is the temperature at which a fluid can produce enough vapor to ignite.

Do I have to thin the material?

This will depend on which front end is being used.

  • The iSpray nozzle – This front end will not require thinning for most materials.
  • The Detail finish nozzle – This front end may require thinning.
What should I use to clean my sprayer?
