Our Take on This Handheld Paint Sprayer Review
This patented technology alters the motor-induced air pressure level, and it is at maximum pressure by default. There are several benefits to this technology. For instance, increased air power levels would lead to a smoother finish and faster coverage, particularly when working with thicker materials. Lowered air power, on the other hand, results in larger material drops from the sprayer, thereby creating a rougher finish.
• Two-Stage Trigger
The paint sprayer’s trigger has a couple of stages. The first stage is the X-Boost turbine, which you activate after pulling the trigger to a particular point. The second stage kicks in after the trigger is pulled further, which activates material injection.
• Adjustable Nozzle
The sprayer’s nozzle is versatile. You can alter the arc’s patterns and width by just rotating the nozzle. It’s important to fine-tune the nozzle before getting started with a big project such as painting the wall of a room. Also, test the nozzle before painting. The nozzle is perfect for details and figurines too.
When cleaning the sprayer, use the right solution for every paint type. For instance, use soapy, warm water for latex.
