Important Features of Wagner Flexio 590 Paint Sprayer
The iSpray nozzle creates a wider pattern and applies a greater amount of paint per minute. If you are painting large items like walls, ceilings, or the side of your house you will want to use the iSpray nozzle so you can complete your work faster.
The sprayer unit also comes with a detail nozzle that allows you to paint smaller items like cabinetry or furniture without creating an overspray due to the width setting.
You can purchase a finer nozzle to use with this machine that will let you do intricate detail painting on small craft projects, and get paint into ornate carvings without creating drips, runs or overspray.
When you paint around your house you sometimes have to paint walls and large areas like ceilings or the exterior siding. When you have to paint these large areas you want to turn the width selector to a wide setting so you can paint a larger area in a shorter amount of time.
Sometimes you are painting trim and furniture with narrow pieces and you do not want a wide setting. You can select the narrow width setting and you will easily be able to do this detailed type of painting.
Variable Speed Turbine
The variable speed turbine makes it possible for you to spray un-thinned paints. You can also spray primer, mixed paints that are combinations of primer and paint, stain, varnish, and most other painting materials including latex and enamel paint.
The variable speed turbine can provide you with a slow air force that allows you to paint thinner materials like stains without causing drips and runs. When you want to paint those thicker paints, primers, and coatings you need high speed forcing more air through the hose. This turbine effectively provides you with the air pressure you need to do the job at hand.
This turbine is also the reason why you do not have to connect this tool to an air compressor to make it work. The turbine does the work of an internal air compressor and eliminates the need for the external compressor.
Material Flow Control
You can set the material flow control to a low setting so you can spray your paint without having any runs or drips. If you wish to be able to apply paint quicker you can adjust the material flow setting to a higher setting and you will get fast coverage.
This Wagner paint sprayer has the capabilities of spraying directly from the manufacturers paint container, but it also has a one quart paint cup that can be attached and used anytime you want to paint a smaller project.
Everything on the paint sprayer easily disconnects with no tools needed. You can quickly take the sprayer apart and clean it thoroughly, dry the pieces, and then reconnect the pieces so you always have them ready to use when you are ready to paint again.
This paint sprayer is suggested for personal usage. That simply means that it is rated more for homeowners than for professional painters.
You can use this sprayer to paint either interior projects or exterior projects. It is capable of spraying paints that have not been thinned so it creates ideal coverage in fewer coats.
On outside projects for decks, sidings, and fences you have the iSpray nozzle and the wide width selector that allow you to apply more paint to larger areas at one time. You can finish your spraying in just a short amount of time.
Wagner Flexio 590 FAQ’s
Do I have to do a test spray before I begin to paint?
Yes you do. This equipment can be set on a high pressure setting and it will spray the majority of paint materials without requiring you to thin the materials, but test painting is not just to determine if the sprayer can handle the thickness of the paint.
You do a test spray to make sure that you have your width set properly, your paint thickness and air supply set properly, and to make sure that you technique is proper. The test spray reduces overspray and mistakes and you should never begin a project without doing a test spray.
Do I need to wear earplugs while using this sprayer?
Protective ear plugs are not required because the sprayer is not loud enough to damage your hearing. The paint sprayers that require you to wear ear plugs when you operate them are either sprayers that need to be connected to external air compressors, or industrial strength sprayers meant for professional painters and commercial use. Protective eyewear is recommended by both the paint sprayer manufacturer and the paint material manufacturers.
