What is the difference between HVLP and airless sprayers?
In an HVLP (which stands for “high volume, low pressure”), air pumped from an air compressor or turbine atomizes paint. In an airless sprayer, a piston pressurizes the material, which sprays out of an orifice smaller than that found on an HVLP nozzle. The high pressure and tight squeeze shear the paint into particles. via

Apply only one thin coat. Then, remove any dust nibs with 1,500-grit sandpaper or a piece of brown paper bag. Finally, using a soft cotton rag or polishing pad, buff the finish to a high shine using automotive paste wax, photo below, which has fine abrasives that polish the finish even further. via
Is it better to spray or brush polyurethane?
Spraying polyurethane allows you to get a more precise and even coat. Many polyurethanes are available in spray cans. Brushing the polyurethane on is good for large flat surfaces, and provides a thicker coat. However, you will not get the same level of smoothness over the surface compared to when you spray. via

What is the advantage of a HVLP spray gun?

What is HVLP good for?
HVLP stands for high volume, low pressure, hence an HVLP spray gun can move a lot of material quickly. Different models run off a pump, turbine, or compressor. Conventional spray guns use higher pressure and require a dedicated compressor. They are less efficient than HVLPs, so they can waste more material. via
How much pressure does a HVLP gun need?
HVLP, or High-Volume/Low Pressure, uses a high volume of air (typically between 15-26 CFM) delivered at low pressure (10 PSI or less at the air cap) to atomize paint into a soft, low-velocity pattern of particles. In most cases, less than 10 psi is needed in order to atomize. via
