Figure 2: A conventional spray gun has a very simple air passage system, using high pressure to atomize paint.

A Conventional Air spray gun atomizes material at a high pressure range usually between 35-80psi. The upside of this technology is the large range of products that can be sprayed, the relatively low cost, the ability for ultrafine atomization, and high productivity and flow. The downside of conventional air is the excessive amount of “overspray” and “bounce-back”, which translates into lots of airborne mist and product waste. Airbrushes are based upon conventional spraying technology.
