    I have the Sata 4000 Ed Hardy 1.4 and love it for activator. Spayed so much better than my DeVilbiss.

    Mine is HVLP. I have not used the rp. Will have to let one the REAL dippers to answer that question.

    @k2concepts can you help me with that ? And what is the best pressure for Superbrew activator with 1.3 RP ? I use that gun for clear but at the price it cost if I can use it for activator I will :P

    That is a fantastic quality gun. I wouldn’t use it for both activator and clear. Buy a dedicated activator gun. The 5000RP will most certainly Work, but I would save it for Clear and get a Devilbiss GPI for activator.

    Thanks @MidOhioHydrographics i will keep my sata for clear and i’ll check devilbiss for activator .. 1.3? 1.4? 1.8 ? Which is the best ?

    Best tip size depends on your technique. If you have a faster pass, you will want a bigger nozzle. Best would be to pick one, and learn to use it well. Watching your film is a WAY better way to determine how you are doing.

    Ok thanks @WileECoyote ! I paint car since over 10 years devilbiss hlvp for base and sata rp for clear but i’m a newbie in hydrographic and i just want to go to the best way for the activator i think i will buy a gpi 1.4  and will see ..

    Biggest hurdle that creates inconsistency, is improper setup of your gun. If you can do that... you are halfway there.

    You should be fine with a 1.3 or 1.4...and yes that 5000 is WAY too nice of a gun to be using for activator...
