We are not sure what you mean by "any type like plastic, aluminum, stainless steel etc?"

Binks [(US Corporate Offices), ITW Industrial Finishing, 195 Internationale Blvd., Glendale Heights, IL 60139; 630-237-5000 888-992-4657 http://www.binks.com] makes a very good spray gun that can be used fror applying conformal coating material.

We have no relationship, nor receive benefit from the company referenced above.

According to Spraygun World, spray gun technology: * Conventional spray guns use a compressor to atomize the coating (paint). General rule of thumb is that this type of gun puts 1/3 of the coating on the substrate being coated and 2/3 into the air. * HVLP [high volume low-pressure] is a classification of guns created by the US government to reduce the emissions created by traditional conventional spray equipment. The basic rule of thumb is this method puts 2/3 of the coating on the substrate and 1/3 in the air. * Famous names: Binks, DeVilbiss, Iwata, Sharpe, Astro Pneumatic, Asturo AOM.

How do you intend to maintain uniform coating thickness using a paint gun, besides ensuring coating consistency? What is the application you are looking at?

Always been fond of SATA HVLP guns, a little pricey though.
