I have a few questions regarding hvlp spray guns. I currently have a hvlp gravity feed spray gun, and I want to use it to start spraying adhesive on my enclosures.

I have never used the gun before. Are gravity feed guns alright to use with spray grade adhesive? Should I get a different gun? Also, I might eventually start painting little projects, so would I need to get another gun. One for paint and one for adhesive?

I would appreciate any feedback you guys could give me.

Thanks

You can use a hvlp gun to spray adhesive but you need one with a huge tip on it like a 2.0 or 2.5 .If you plan on using that gun to spray paint out of later dont spray adhesive through ,get one of those cheap wal mart hvlp with a huge tip on it that should work just fine.

If you are going to paint a car DO NOT USE A CHEAP PAINT GUN. They are poorly made very poor paint atomiziation. And if you clean your gun correct. You can spray adhesive thru it. Use a primer nozzle it will spray fine.
