Investing in big spray-paint machines and guns is not an easy job. There a lot of factors to consider, because spray guns and machines are extremely expensive. If you are a professional, it is recommended investing in spray-machine that can ensure the maximum life out of the product, which is why it requires a lot of research in terms of money, quality, spare parts, kits, etc.
Whenever one buys spraypaint machines or guns, with a lot of materials, it also includes Packing kits.
What are packing Kits? And why are they important?
Packing kits in the paint sprayers have certain parts in them that help you protect the more expensive components of your paint sprayer. Some of the basic benefits of packing kits include:
- The kit helps in protecting the Paint sprayer from wearing down as the rod in it moves up and down.
- The kit also ensures that the paints or coating is confined to moving within the cylinder.
The Titan packing kits have a huge variety of kits that ensure that the two main benefits mentioned above are taken care of. These kit ensure quality performance and high functioning of your airless paint sprayers.
How To Select The Best Packing Kit:
There are a few factors to consider while choosing Kits for your paint sprayers, which guarantees you that your airless paint sprayer can perform efficiently for as long as possible. There are three main factors to consider which are discussed below:
- Coating of chemicals:
The chemical composition of your paint or fluid that you use in a spray paint gun is an important determinator to choose your kit. Paint Coatings that have high and strong chemical composition require PTFE packing, as it is better known to resist chemical effects than UHMWPE. Sometimes both PTFE and UHMWPE together can be used to provide resistance against abrasion and strong chemical compositions.
- Abrasive Material Considerations:
A majority of airless paint sprayers have a standard packing kit that has UHMWPE, which is combined with leather wear materials that help in slowing down the abrasions that might occur in your paint sprayer. The leather is not an essential component in these kits but, it is worth it to get the kits that have leather in it as this will ensure the longevity of your spray machine. The leather is supposed to provide a cushion which helps to reduce the wear on UHMWPE.
So this factor is an extremely important consideration when buying a kit for your paint sprayer. Titan packing kits have been rated the best for having the perfect material to protect your paint sprayers.
The third, yet an important factor to consider is the temperature that is used to apply spray paint. Material that is heated, for paint application, include factors like the finishing paint or solvents that are heated to keep them down for a smooth application. The packing kit that we recommend here is to look for PTFE Packings because they are typically better at resisting heat.
Where are packing kits available and What parts do they include?:
The Airless paint sprayer parts selection is huge and is offered by many companies. A few companies that offer kits that we know are worth your money is Titan packing kits by Titan, Graco, HERO, Wagner, etc.
Other reliable sources from where you can buy these packing kits are on Amazon or eBay. One benefit of buying on Amazon or eBay is that you can check the reviews from other users and get better insights on the specifications of a kit before buying.
The packing kits can be bought from the mentioned companies’ original websites or their retailers. But we recommend please buy original products as a lot of counterfeit products are available in the market, which probably cannot ensure the same guarantee as you would get when you buy the original product.
One important consideration is that before buying the kits, please make sure it is compatible with a particular paint sprayer products you have. A lot of users buy the kit, and later realize that the parts are not a perfect fit for the machine they have.
