Your spray tip selection will either ease or add to the difficulty and cost of achieving that professional level you require.
So, when choosing the best Graco airless spray tip for your application, you consider three variables:
1. The paint sprayer you are using
2. The material or paint you intend to use
3. Spray tip wear.

Our range of Graco spray tips is identified by a three-digit code – example FFLP312.
The first number, when multiplied by 2, indicates the fan the tip will create when sprayed at a distance of 12 inches from the surface – a 312 creates a 6-inch fan.
The remaining two numbers indicate how much fluid will leave the spray tip via a measure of orifice size, in thousandths of an inch – 312 has a 0.012-inch orifice.
Paints that have a lower viscosity, will require a smaller orifice in comparison with more viscous paints that will require a larger orifice to atomise the paint.
