Powder Application Tips Series: Spray Gun Air Controls

Spray guns can spray most coatings or finishes currently being used for automotive refinish, industrial, architectural, and general metal applications. Spray guns carry and direct the paint from the gun to the surface.

Spray guns typically have 2-3 air controls per gun:
  1. Powder regulator (flow regulator): controls the amount and velocity of powder being sprayed
  2. Atomizer regulator (diffuser or sub regulator): controls the density and size of the powder cloud as well as ensuring a steady output
  3. Swirl regulator (TIP regulator): delivers air directly to the gun tip, which can shape the cloud and prevent powder build up at the electrode and deflector. 

For more information on application, please see or download our powder coating technical guide on our website.
