What pressure should I set my HVLP spray gun at?
We recommend painting between 25-30 psi while the trigger is pulled. You may see some paint tech sheets which refer to a painting air pressure of 8-10. Don’t set the spray gun to those as this measurement is referring to the air cap pressure right where the paint comes out.
