Description
Breaking of the wet paint into tiny droplets while being sprayed onto the surface. In air spray applications, droplets of 20-50 micrometers are obtained from atomization with the help of high pressure air. In airless spray applications, paint particles, compressed under 5-35 atm pressure, are broken into smaller pieces by the air molecules they collide with after leaving the nozzle. However, in airless spray applications, an atomization fineness of 70-150 micrometers is considered satisfactory.
