Air-assisted Airless

Air-Assisted-Airless – Atomization caused by release of high pressure fluid that impinges through a small orifice. Airless Atomization is assisted by air atomization (air-assisted-airless) to provide a finer finish and break up the tailing effect at the edge of the spray pattern. Most widely used by painting contractors, structural metal finishers, and heavy equipment manufacturers.

Advantages: High fluid capability. Large patterns. Fastest spray application process. Low air consumption. Limited fog and “bounce back” – permits spraying into cavities.
Limitations: Potentially hazardous hydraulic injection. Higher rate of overspray due to high fluid output. Sharp patterns; difficult to blend. Expensive nozzles (tips). Coarse atomization may flood surface or create runs. Equipment requires top maintenance. Combines the hydraulic atomization of airless with the atomization of air spray. Ideal for many finishing and coating applications, air assist offers high production levels and a relatively smooth finish -perfect for wood furniture topcoats or fabricated metal parts.
