Which Wagner spray painter?
For the consumer, asking the following questions can help you decide which Wagner sprayer would be the best choice:
How big is my job? Put simply:
Small job: Wagner HVLP paint sprayer
Big job: Wagner Airless/HEA paint sprayer
What sort of finish am I looking for? Have your walls just been plastered and do you want the smoothest finish possible? Then Wagner paint sprayers offer a good solution. If you only have one wall to spray, the HVLP Prima would be the best choice. These Wagner machines are easy to install, give less overspray, are easier to clean, but it does mean that the spray pattern is a bit coarser. However, with high gloss emulsions this doesn’t have to be a disadvantage.
Is the space I am going to paint empty? Nowadays Wagner paint sprayers produce very little overspray. HVLP could do this already, but Wagner’s new HEA technology also meets this requirement.
What kind of paint do I want to spray? First, always read the technical sheet provided by the paint manufacturer. This will tell you whether your chosen paint is suitable for a sprayer. Also read the user manual that comes with the sprayer. If the paint is highly viscous, for professional purposes, then you will understand that trying to spray it with a consumer machine would be an unwise choice. However, Wagner has many different options that can provide an solution for almost every situation.
Wagner sprayers have highly diverse clients and applications. In principle, a paint sprayer can process almost any liquid used by clients in nearly every field, for example, bakers, flag makers, painters, project developers, architects, real estate agents, artists, shipbuilding, horticulture, and small industry. The range of clients is very wide.
We have four different techniques in our product range:
Wagner Airless: Suitable for large areas. This technique gives a nice smooth result and allows you to quickly cover large areas. Disadvantages are relatively more overspray and cleaning is more intensive than HVLP. Also, changing colors is not that flexible as you must first clean the machine.
Wagner HEA: This new Airless technique will be released in mid 2017. It provides better coverage than Airless. Due to the lowering of pressure of the paint spray, it produces less overspray. An attractive promising technique.
Wagner HVLP: If you need to spray small objects and the occasional wall then HVLP can be a suitable technique. Starting up is quick and easy, it is just as easy to change paint (color) and cleaning doesn’t take as much time as other techniques. Although the mist is a little less fine, it produces a very beautiful finish with high gloss paint.
Wagner XVLP: This is a compromise between Airless/HEA and HVLP. However, although this technique keeps all the benefits of HVLP, the spray pattern is at the level of Airless and HEA
