You may be able to still use the unit as a spray outfit but you will need to stop spraying longer and let the compressor catch up.
Savings of expensive paint material achieved with an HVLPHVLP = High Volume Low Pressure – low spray pressure technology.Terminology for an internationally recognized low-pressure technology whereby the transfer efficiency rate has to exceed 65%, while the maximum air cap pressure is below 0.7 bar.X» gun by far compensate the slight additional cost provoked by the higher air consumption.
