Paint to thinner ratio is 60:40, that is 60% paint and 40% thinner. Sometimes it can be 50:50 depending on different occasion. Remember to MIX IT WELL.

How do you take this hvlp gun apart for proper cleaning of the spray gun?


I've found over the years the least amount of times you can tear a spray gun completely apart the better. Usually a real good 'flushing' with lacquer thinner will suffice. I will take the air cap off and let it soak in thinner to dislodge any build up but other than that, I simply run thinner thru till it runs clear out the tip.

I also 'back flush' which involves having thinner in the cup and the air supply hose attached. the air pressure should be adjusted quite a bit lower than what you use for spraying paint.

Then you place a clean shop towel or rag over the air cap of the gun and pull the trigger. This forces air back into the paint cup 'back flushing' the gun. Then take the rag away from the cap and pull the trigger again to run thinner thru the gun the normal way.

IF you still want to tear the gun apart for cleaning you can hopefully get some idea with this video link;

Where can you find the mixing ratio for the product being used?


you did not state what paint and what gun and what pressure - telepathy is overrated and works only in the movies...

if you use two pack mix - on the package is clearly stated how much part 'a" and how much part "b" should be used, you can then add up to 20% of thinners if allowed in particular paint.

you need to pay attention if mix is by weight or by volume, light paints are usually by volume,

paint should be rather light oil to water consistency in low pressure guns, if gun nozzle is below 0.8mm strainer must be used (190micron is ok) above that you can use your old pantyhose to strain paint after mixing.

hope this will help you at least a bit...

Iam useing sherwin williams carclad hs spray paint and having prabloms with runing tryed little thinner more thinner low psi hi psi just can not get it right


If its running in spot places it may be your fan width is not wide enough and your spray pattern is to tight so your over laps are causing paint build up hence the runs, use a nice big wide fan pattern and run about 30psi

Not sure how much paint thinner needs to be added to paint with a spray gun


That depends on what type of paint you are using, surface to be painted, and air pressure for the gun.
Some type of paint needs different air pressure.
This is something you will learn by practicing. Try mixing a little of paint with some thinner
and spray using different distances from the surface to be painted.
If paint is not getting well distributed on the surface then try adding some more thinner.

In trying to spray oil base paint, I get very low fluid flow (if any) from the cup to the gun. I've cleaned the gun and insured the hoses weren't clogged. Changing the adjustment valves...


How does it spray if you dump the paint out and put paint thinner in the cup? If it sprays paint thinnner, but not the paint, your paint is too thick. Thin it down by 25% and try a little. Keep adding thinner until the paint sprays out of the gun in an acceptable manner. Your gun probably has a 1.1,or 1.4 fluid tip. this is for spraying lacquers or automotive paints that are very thin. to spray oil based paint, your would need a 2.0 or 2.5 or bigger. not really what this gun was made to spray.

Ok i really don't think that the spray jets are getting either enough air pressure to push the spray out or that it isn;t getting enough solution so how do i check to see whats wrong and how do i fix it?


Air pressure, normal everyday gun you will want at least 50lbs air pressure at the gun - and there are inline pressure gauges that will go on the end of the gun for pressure adjustment & to read the pressure. As far as paint, if you have a viscosity checker, use that, otherwise, make sure you have the proper thinner/reducer and or hardner in the paint since most paints you cannot spray without reducer cause they are too thick. If you have used the gun before and not cleaned it, it it likely plugged up and can be cleaned with laqquer thinner in most instances, and the metal guns can be left overnight in gun cleaner or gasoline if they are really plugged up and then cleaned with the lacquer thinner. hope this helps.
