Common features of professional paint sprayers include adjustable air pressure control, variable spray patterns and adjustable flow control. Professional paint sprayers are able to handle materials with different viscosities such as thin stain or thick latex paint.
Adjustable air pressure helps prevent overspray when applying thinner materials such as primers, stains or lacquers while allowing for easy application of thicker latex paints. Variable spray patterns allow for horizontal, vertical or circular applications, depending upon the project's needs. An adjustable flow control makes it easy to switch from painting a full wall to painting trim and other small, detailed work. A good filtering system is important to keep out dust particles for a smooth finish.
