General features of the Wagner Wall Sprayer W 500
This entry-level paint sprayer for the consumer is excellent for small wall paint projects. Think of a individual wall, or room. There is a handle extension for you to reach high ceilings. This allows you to paint an entire room in a different colour.
The main feature of this type of paint sprayer is that you work with attachments. The 1800 ml reservoir is ideal for carrying out small projects quickly, easily and cleanly. Each fully-filled reservoir is good for approximately 13 m². It is easy to change the attachments of the Wall Sprayer W 500. One simple click mechanism lets you change colour and continue spraying. Cleaning is a simple operation because the attachment is the only component that needs to be cleaned. The rest of the paint sprayer does not come into contact with the paint.
Airless or HVLP?
Spray painters are roughly divided into two techniques that have been around for a long time: Airless and high volume low pressure (HVLP). Below you can read about the relevant key differences between the two.
The advantages of HVLP compared to Airless:
- Less overspray
- Faster setup and cleaning
- Ideal for small projects
The disadvantages of HVLP compared to Airless:
- Spray pattern is not as smooth as Airless but still significantly better than brush/roller
- Filled with paint, the attachment can weigh between 1-2 kg
- Not suitable for large wall paint projects (greater than 80 m²)
Examples of interior projects
All types of dispersion paint and emulsion paint that can be diluted with water.

What types of paint can I use with the Wagner Wall Sprayer W 500?
The Wall Sprayer W 500 is suitable for emulsion paint. Although there is nothing wrong with the quality of Histor Monodek, our experience is that this paint is unsuitable for use with a paint sprayer.
Can I use solvent based paint with a paint sprayer?
Yes, you can use a paint sprayer for both solvent and water-based paints.
How should I dilute the paint, and in what ratio?
Interior wall paint (dispersion paint and emulsion paint): dilute by 5-10% or more.
Please note: if you are going to dilute the paint, we advise you to start with 5% and if necessary increase in increments of 5%.
What is the high volume low pressure (HVLP) technique?
Without going into the technical aspects, the features of HVLP are:
- less overspray
- easier cleaning
- easier to work with
- small to medium-sized projects
What are the differences between the Wall Sprayer W 500, Wood & Metal Sprayer W 300, Universal Sprayer W 890 and Universal Sprayer W 950?
- The Wall Sprayer 500 is an original emulsion machine suitable for painting emulsion paint onto multiple walls.
- The Wood&Metal Sprayer W 300 is a lacquering machine suitable for relatively small projects using lacquer/stain. For example, sheds, fences, and tables.
- The Universal Sprayer 890 is a lacquer/stain/emulsion machine. It has more power than the Wall Sprayer W 500 and the Wood & Metal Sprayer W300. This means it is easier to work with thick paints. In addition, compared to the Wall Sprayer 500 and Wood & Metal Sprayer 300, this machine is better suited for larger projects.
- The Universal Sprayer 950 draws the paint directly from the container. This machine is basically a emulsion paint machine. Its power is relatively high, which makes this paint sprayer better suited to larger projects due to the higher working speed. The machine also produces more overspray.
I have read a lot about the cleaning of these machines. How long does it take to clean them, and what should I use?
Cleaning the Wagner Wall Sprayer W 500 takes about 8-10 minutes. Clean the machine with the dilution solution. For water-based paints, simply flush the machine with warm water; solvent paints diluted with white spirit should be cleaned with white spirit.
Do I need to use a lot of masking tape?
Although the overspray of the Wagner Wall Sprayer is relatively negligible, it is always a good idea to mask off. Mask off past the area you are spraying by 10 cm, and cover the floor and furniture.
Will everything get covered in paint due to overspray?
There will always be a little overspray. You should mask off and cover up in much the same way as you would when painting with conventional rollers. It is also important to keep the spray nozzle at a distance of 20 cm perpendicular to the wall for an even coverage.
If you follow this advice, you should not have too many problems with overspray.
Does a paint sprayer deliver a better result?
Definitely! Paint coverage is better and smoother, and provides a very professional looking result. You also need less paint. Wagner states that paint consumption can be reduced by up to 30%.
Can I work faster with a paint sprayer?
That depends upon the surface that needs to be sprayed. The actual painting is much faster when compared to using a roller, but preparation and cleaning takes more time. As a rule of thumb, the tipping point is usually when the object to be painted has a surface area greater than 40 m². If your project is larger than this, you will save time. For complex surfaces, such as beams and corners, you will gain immediate time savings.
Is spray painting difficult?
Paint sprayers are easy to master. It is a fairly simple and convenient way to apply paints, stains and lacquers, especially if you follow the guidelines correctly. That is why it is important to read the instructions for use carefully, and call us if you have any doubts.
Do you deliver the Wagner Wall Sprayer W 500 ready for use?
Yes, the Wagner Wall Sprayer W 500 is delivered completely ready for emulsion paint.
