Unlike HVLP guns, this moves material much slower, requires much higher pressures, and requires more thinning of paints, but works well with my old low SCFM output 1 HP compressor. I'm glad to find this gun among all the HVLP guns out there and note that it doesn't even vaporize the paint like an HVLP gun I have been using at lower pressures. That is to say, there is less material left floating in the air. Using this gun was a pleasant change back to the way it used to be with my old DeVilbiss paint gun. Note however, that I found I needed a rather high pressure (80psi) for the auto paint used (urethane) even after thinning, so pretest your painting pattern so that you don't paint too thick of a material as new paint formulas are intended for high flow HVLP guns. Results were good, but I should have practiced first to get the right mixture.
