Spray guns for painting walls and ceilings: choice and dyeing machinery
Gun - a device which not only helps to save ink consumption, but also facilitates you to work the spray gun - the acquisition of sufficient serious and if the person is far-fetched to buy it, you should not be greedy, it is better to buy a machine popular manufacturers that have quality. When you select the device you should pay attention to what material the case is made. Preference is to give the aluminum body of the aircraft, it is more durable than a body made of plastic.
How does the color of the ceiling paint sprayer
Painting of the ceiling is a paint sprayer is not something complex. The unit performs almost all of the work automatically. Malaria only need to direct the nozzle and ensure the uniform application of paint, regulate the pressure of the compressor.
By the way, the main components of the spray gun - is:
- a reservoir for paints;
- compressor (aka supercharger or pump);
- a nozzle through which the paint is sprayed to a desired consistency.
It should also be mentioned that the spray guns are mechanical and electrical.
Spray evenly sprayed on the surface of the ceiling
In the first cylinder, which is supported by the pressure in the tank is pumped with a hand pump, and secondly it is supported by the operation of a single compressor.
In practice each such unit has a removable nozzle and a pressure regulator. The simplest of them, that are more similar to the sprays, such functionality does not have. The main advantage of such equipment - easy operation. Since it is not difficult to handle, do not they have had no experience of painting.
How to choose the device for painting walls and ceilings
Which spray guns are the best? Naturally, the power whose operation is controlled by a microcontroller. That is, they have a software that allows you to make the thinnest setting gun operation, adjust the density of the paint, indicate the number of coats and so on.
The device then automatically be adjusted to a preset mode, adjust the flow rate of the coloring component to mix it in the correct proportions with air, and so on.
should focus on when choosing a gun:
- brand awareness;
- the quality of the equipment (at least the plastic parts, a relatively high weight, as the quality of the motor winding can not weigh a little);
- the ability to complete the device "not native" nozzles.
Electric spray guns are considered the best because of their setting accuracy of the highest
Only pay attention to the cost should not be. For example, several years ago the company released paint sprayers Vitek luxury class for the price of 280 dollars. In practice, it turned out that the quality of many times worse than the cheap Chinese models. And when refueling water paint based on acrylic nozzle virtually always slaughter clots that indicates the abnormal ink and air mixing mode.
Ideally - it is better to read the reviews of each model, which attracted the attention of the buyer.
Tips: Which gun is better to choose a ceiling painting
If the painting of walls, you can use a spray, the ceiling is necessarily used electric gun, which, among other things, you can put pressure in excess of 4 atmospheres. Otherwise, it is better to use an ordinary brush with soft bristles. Naturally, the paint consumption will be more, but do not have to redo everything in the future.
If so, and be guided by producers, among them are:
InterTool - one of the most popular companies that produce spray guns, as their quality is very high
Incidentally, such a tool produces even in Belarus, for example, the company Steels. It is inexpensive, but in terms of quality is comparable to InterTool. This company even though the Chinese, but produces very high-quality electrical equipment for building needs, and this has become famous in Russia.
Why the ceiling be sure to paint electric paint sprayer? Because you want to use for this purpose the minimum number of colors so as not to get a divorce and sag.
When using a spray bottle to make the pressure of more than 2 atmospheres is practically impossible. And if you use video, is a smooth and uniform layer of paint can and do forget.
What is a spray gun to paint the ceiling latex paint
What distinguishes the gun, which is allowed to fill with water-based paint? The fact that he - removable nozzle. If you run a conventional filling her tank, the sprayer quickly will become worthless, because some of the ink will dry out at the end. Remove it by mechanical means will not work. Accordingly, the nozzle - is a consumable item. In models where they are not removable, after the first use of the spray gun will have to change completely.
Of course, to paint with latex paint can more simple models of the gun, but the quality of staining and durability applied layer will leave much to be desired.
It is also possible to use for coloring normal household compressor.
Spray guns for painting the ceiling latex paint have a good period of operation, because they have a removable nozzle
Moreover, such equipment has huge advantages:
- It provides the ability to set the pressure at about 10 atmospheres and even greater (especially useful in the dyeing of textured surface);
- high performance;
- suitable for specific variations of colors (rubber, mineral).
How to use the household compressor? For him, it is necessary to buy a special adapter that is not a large reservoir and curved nozzle. Is attached to the compressor by means of a flexible hose (available with a reinforcement). Electric air pump can be even painted, galvanized metal surface.
Tips on how to paint the ceiling spray gun
Thus, the staining using the gun should be carried out in 3-4 layers. On drying of the previous must be at least 2 hours. The primer surface is done only when needed, but it is recommended to apply in conjunction with the paint (1 to 1).
The nozzle should be placed at a distance of 20-30 cm from the surface to be coated. If you are using a nozzle with a wide coverage, the distance should be increased.
Used for filling does not dilute the paint - not the best option. They are too viscous and can simply clog the nozzle. Dilution should solvents recommended by the manufacturer (for example, derivatives of oil added to the silicone prohibited). Check the viscosity of the ink is possible by means of the "sample" for the drop.
When painting the ceiling with the help of the gun it is recommended to paint the surface 3-4 times at intervals 2:00
- Prepare a stock solution, reaching a liquid cream consistency.
- Take a glass plate and drop it on a few drops of paint.
- With the help of left and right turns paint must be spread evenly over the surface of the glass. If this does not get done and just drop does not spread - it is necessary to reduce the viscosity by adding more solvent.
Electric spray gun painting must be every 20-30 minutes to take short breaks of a few minutes to allow the motor to cool. In this case, the paint should be mixed (some spray guns for this a separate function, the compressor pumps air in the opposite direction, its surplus goes through the valve).
Of course, that before starting work should be carried out painting a small piece of the surface, assessing the quality of the paint application. Through the nozzle should thus come "fog" from the paint, not smaller droplets.
When using a spray gun is required to use a respirator and other protective equipment (goggles, overalls).
After painting the reservoir ink residues are removed. For this filling is performed solvent and passing through the nozzle. After that - you need to carry out pumping water. Store gun should be disassembled, and wherein the reservoir is to be opened.

Whether it is worth buying gun? Fortunately, there is such equipment is not expensive, as the engine is equipped with low productivity to 150-250 watts. But with his help save a huge amount of colors. And therefore it pays gun fast enough. So yes, it is worth to buy.
