Fuji Spray FAQs
Why choose a Fuji HVLP paint sprayer instead of a standard one?
Standard spray guns that attach to a compressor have too much pressure which makes the paint splatter all over instead of a fine, professional finish the high velocity/ low-pressure guns produce. Fuji sprayers also reduce the time it takes to finish a project and since there’s less overspray there’s less waste of materials.
Do you have to buy a turbine in order to use a Fuji HVLP spray gun?
Not necessarily, Fuji does manufacture guns that can be used with a shop compressor, but the majority of their spray guns are only compatible with a turbine. Compressors have too much pressure and a kit is needed to reduce the amount of air propelling through the paint gun. With compressors also come noise and the turbines that Fuji manufactures are compact, efficient and quiet.
Can I use epoxy with a Fuji HVLP spray gun?
No. Epoxies, tar, glues and other very thick materials will not work well with Fuji paint sprayers since the spray gun is atomizing the coating and can not break it apart into a super-fine mist when it’s too thick. A viscous substance will not spray evenly and leave an unappealing finish or even clog. Even latex paints should be thinned a bit so the resulting finish is flawless. Polyurethanes, enamels and the like will work wonderfully.
Why is a Fuji spray gun better than brush or roller application?
Using a Fuji paint sprayer cuts your work time significantly from traditional application methods and also reduces paint consumption drastically, saving not only time but money. The finish achieved from a Fuji spray gun is far superior in every way from a paintbrush or roller. There no brush marks or uneven spots to contend with, just a smooth professional finish. Since it’s so easy to use and clean a Fuji paint sprayer, it won’t be a hassle to use it even for the smallest jobs.
Can I use a Fuji HVLP spray gun to paint the exterior of my house?
It is very possible to finish a large-scale job like the exterior of a home with a Fuji paint sprayer. However, the capacity of the paint cups is designed more for medium jobs such as; cabinets, furniture, finish projects and interior walls You can do a larger scale job, you would just need to refill the cup more often. The optional larger cup sizes would make painting or staining a deck or fence a breeze.
How do I clean a Fuiji HLVP spray gun?
Fuji has made maintenance on their spray guns very simple. All you need is a bucket of soapy water or solvent and some paper towels. The first step is to run soapy water or solvent if necessary (depending on the type of finish you used in the gun) through the assembled spray gun. Then, break down the needle, fluid nozzle and air cap to soak in the cleaning solution of choice. You should scrub any pieces if necessary and wipe everything down with paper towels to make sure it is clean and ready to go for your next project.
