What is airbrush.....?


Air brush is the smallest spray equipment for liquid painting. It spray paint out by using air spray method which is required to use with compressor to generate air pressure and atomize paint flow out. You can see the principal of air spray in below link. This link explain with overview of air spray method which cover every type of spray gun. Whatever size of spray gun, the principal are the ame but the deep deails such as spraying technique, controlling is quite different from other spray equipment.

Because the equipment size is smallest, the smallest nozzle is 0.2 mm (some series) so the precision and exactness are higher than other spray equipment type and usually use in artwork. For example, plastic model, canvas, mural painting and etc.

Using airbrush in production process

Airbrush is not only spray equipment for artwork, it can be used for large production process. In case of quality control process, it require a repainting equipment in order to repaint for some defect area. Airbrush applicate to use this work because some defect point is tiny area and can not be allowed to pass by QC protocol. Using ordinatory spray gun may not be efficicent and waste a lot of paint material and also low precise because it is not painting for whole piece work, it is repainting for tiny area.

However, using other accessories with airbrush such as compressor and some material paint must be selected to be compatible with air brush. We also have compressor information which is compatible for airbrush equipment. Using improper accessories and material paint may damage equipment and also has risk to injure user.
