Airless painting tools are the best suited sprayers for applying latex paint to a house’s exterior. Due to the need for masking to prevent overspray on adjacent surfaces, using airless spray tools for painting interiors is not as efficient. Compressed air powered spray guns and latex paints just don’t work optimally with each other; latex is too thick and needs to be thinned just right.
How Does It Work?
An airless sprayer is made up of a pumping unit, a hose and the gun. An air compressor is not needed, since your paint is pumped through the hose by a motor then forced out a tiny tip that breaks the paint down into a fan shaped spray pattern.
