Graco Rac X Low Pressure Spray Tips

Graco Low Pressure Spray Tips Handle Fine Finishes to High Production Applications

According to Graco, painters have seen a lot of success with 2017’s Fine Finish Low Pressure FF LP Tip. But why stop there? Graco has built on that model with the Rac X Low Pressure Spray Tips which they’ve designed to deliver what they call “the industry’s best finish at low airless spray pressure.” The result, they claim, is less overspray and better pattern overlap for consistent blended finish quality with complete atomization.



Graco Low Pressure Spray Tips: The Big Deal

The Rac X FF LP and Rac X LP come in 46 Low Pressure Tip sizes to support the widest range of applications, from detailed trim work to large surface and high production applications. The secret is in the SmartTip technology, an internal tip geometry that works best at low airless spray pressure. This tip design reduces the energy required to atomize paints, stains, and other materials to deliver a consistent finish.

The Graco Low Pressure Spray Tips work with any airless sprayer, spraying at up to 50% lower pressure. This results in less overspray and easy pattern overlap. The soft spray fan pattern makes it easy to apply any material to any surface.

Graco also claims that these tips reduce your prep work and clean-up and that they last up to twice as long.

For even better results, Graco recommends using the Rac X FF LP and Rac X LP Low Pressure Spray Tips with their SmartControl Pressure Management System. This setup ensures a superior spray fan pattern without fluctuations in pressure at any setting.

I suggested it on the YT channel, I’ll do so here. You guys should do a comparison between the Graco and Wagner offerings you might find at HD and Lowes. Specifically the DIY sprayers that are handheld all in one units.
