Cheap paint guns can sometimes yield acceptable results, but high-dollar HVLP (high volume low pressure) guns are the industry standard. Not only do they help cut down on volatile organic compounds (VOCs), they apply a greater volume of material at lower nozzle pressures. That means more paint on the car and less overspray on the ground. Furthermore, they provide a wider spray pattern and operate at up to 90-percent efficiency compared to the 30-percent rating of standard paint guns.
