Pro Results, Nice Price
If you’ve tried other inexpensive spray guns and found them just too noisy and difficult to use, you might want to give this SmartSelect HVLP sprayer from Black & Decker a try.
Large airless sprayers and most of the little handheld sprayers pump paint through the spray tip at high pressure. This allows thick paint to be sprayed but results in a lot of overspray.
HVLP (high-volume, low-pressure) sprayers, on the other hand, use very low pressure. The lower pressure results in less messy and less wasteful overspray. The drawback is that you have to thin most paint to get it to spray. A viscosity cup and instructions are included to help you add the right amount of solvent.
We were impressed that we got flawless results on our first try painting interior trim with this sprayer. This HVLP sprayer is perfect for painting woodwork or doors and finishing furniture. You can spray paint, polyurethane and stain. It’s also great for projects like lattice, shutters or intricate fences that would be hard to paint or stain with a brush. It’s too slow to be good for painting walls or ceilings, though.
