Protective Coatings Application: Air Assisted Spray (Introduction)

Objective: To recognize the principles of air-assisted spray, including conventional and HVLP spray painting and its use within the industrial coatings.

  • Air-assisted spray painting is a common method of coating application, especially for factory-applied coatings.
  • Air is required to assist coating application.
  • Air-assisted spray painting is restricted to select coatings.
  • Air-assisted spray painting generally applies thinner coats as opposed to airless spray.
