@ Dan Berg: What gun are you spraying the Clearstar FA with? I've been using just the Wagner cheap gun for spraying canvas prints flat on the floor with perfect results. Don't know how well this gun would spray 36x48 prints vertically. Seems like it would be asking for runs. But everything I have sprayed has been water based coating.
Your going to hate me but you did ask.
I have 4 Bink Mach I HVLP setups.
2 for spraying prints the other 2 are for furniture catalized sealer and topcoat finishes.
Each one dedicated for a specific finish. No mixing finishes between setups.
I use an HVLP gun with gravity feed cup for all water based finishes for canvas.
I use another Mach I HVLP gun with attached pressure pot for Clearstar solvent.
I leave that product in the pot all the time and just back flush the material out of the gun after use. Other then the tip no cleaning required.
Since it is the gloss material it takes very little to no agitation before spraying.
Pressure pot with 2 line hose,regulator and Mach I HVLP gun is about $700 per setup. Cup gun setup is about half that.
Requires a good filtered air system. My main air compressor in the shop is a 5hp Ingersol Rand although one half that size would do.
Way overkill for spraying prints but then again for a cabinetry business this is pretty much standard stuff.
Once you spray with one of these you will never go back.
