Air Sprayers Buying Guide

See All Air Sprayers: http://www.canadiantire.ca/AST/browse/6/Tools/1/CompressorsAirTools/AirTools.jsp

The ideal way to finish an  auto body repair is with a spray gun.

Spray painting gives the smoothest paint finish possible.

All air tools have a SCFM or Standardized Cubic Feet per Minute rating. This number tells you how much air is required to run the tool. For example, this gravity feed spray gun requires 5 SCFM at 45 PSI.

A 2 to 10 gallon compressor would have enough volume of air for intermittent use. A 3HP motor on a larger gallon tank will have enough power to run a spray gun on continuous use. An11G 3HP compressor is the ideal choice.

There are two main types of spray guns – gravity feed and siphon.

With a siphon spray gun, the paint is held in a cup underneath and siphoned up to be dispensed by the spray tip.

Some of the air pressure is used to lift the paint into the nozzle.

A gravity feed spray gun draws paint from a cup mounted above the gun.

Higher-end models will have more controls for spray pattern and the air to paint mixture.

Thorough preparation is one of the keys to a great paint job. Another is controlling the overspray.  Paint droplets can travel a long way, so mask or protect whatever you don't want painted.

The paint to be sprayed should be thoroughly mixed  and strained to removes any lumps or debris.

The paint must be able to flow out of the sprayer. The viscosity or thickness, must be checked and adjusted by adding the solvent recommended by the manufacturer.

Install an accessory water separator to remove moisture. Water vapour in the sprayer's air supply can ruin your paint job.

Protect yourself with safety glasses and a filter mask. Disposable coveralls and gloves are a good idea too.

Spray painting can create a fine mist of paint and solvents, so ensure the workspace is well ventilated.

Air spray equipment must be thoroughly cleaned immediately after use. Many problems can be avoided by keeping the spray gun clean and lubricated. Follow the manufacturers recommendations.

You can find a wide selection of air spray tools and compressors...at Canadian Tire.
