Compliant Spray Guns

Compliant Spray Guns are very similar to HVLP spray guns. Compliant spray guns use a different air cap resulting in a higher head pressure than an HVLP spray gun. Compliant spray guns increase the rate of transfer efficiency by over 65%. Compliant spray guns, like HVLP spray guns are EPA approved, making them a great choice for a more modern spray gun setup.

HVLP Spray Guns   Air Assisted Airless Spray Guns   Conventional Spray Guns

Compliant Spray Guns also help increase the speed of production, much like a conventional spray gun, but not with the wasted paint/finish particulate. Compliant spray guns also give off a better feel than HVLP spray guns because of the air cap difference. Compliant spray guns tend to save painters a lot of money in every year of usage compared to conventional spray gun setups. FAQ’s regarding compliant spray guns::
