Conventional Spray Guns

Conventional Spray Guns have been around quite a while. While still useful today, conventional spray guns are considered “low-tech” by many spray gun aficionados. Conventional spray guns offer the ability of creating a rapid transfer of paint particulate to the part’s surface. Conventional spray guns often waste over 50% of the paint/finish they are spraying to the inefficient delivery mechanism. Conventional spray guns are good for heavy finishes like glues, adhesives and other types of heftier finishes.
