View Full Version : Update on Devillbiss Plus
Went to a 1.2 tip, upped the air and I am now a happy camper! Sprayed a LOT better and more comparable to the conventional I was used to and NO solvent pop this time:D

Ken,i like the 1.2 also.If you use a slow reducer things should lay down really well.

Where did you finally set the air. I use the 1.2 or the 1.3 and shoot at 30 PSIG with the trigger pulled. I've not noticed any improvement in film characteristics with higher air just more overspray.
I went to 45. I had tried the 1.3 at 30 -35- and 40. In retrospect I should have turned the fluid needle in but was used to having it all the way out and adjusting air on my old DevilBiss. I am using a DuPont High Solids 2 coat clear and it handles differently than the HOK UFC 35. I actually used this gun with the 1.3 and 30 psi to clear a mailbox with the HOK and it worked fine on that clear. I was putting on too much of the DuPont and it was solvent popping and when I sped up I got more OP. I called Devillbiss and gave him the Clear coat product number and he was the one recommended going to the 1.2 and higher pressure. Guess it just the ins and outs of learning a new gun. I really believe I am going to be happy with this gun though. High Solids clears seem to be less forgiving or maybe it is just me...

I sprayed some transtar euro clear with the 1.2 tip . Its a 3.5 clear, the two other guys in the shop asked how I did it, wow it layed like glass and it was a part hanging up not laying down.

I also sprayed some cheap clear 4.5 or 4.7 very thin stuff and it went on too dry with the same set up.
