Why Compressed Air is Great for Auto Spray Painting
|   Saturday, July 13, 2013
As a car owner, you'll probably take pride and joy in keeping your vehicle looking pristine. After all, there's nothing worse than driving around in a car which looks old, dirty and unloved. But maintaining your car's appearance goes much further than simply giving it a wash every now and then. If your car has suffered a scratch or scrape, or is simply getting on in years, it may well be that you need to touch up your paint work as well.

Car Painting Options
To get your car painted properly, it's usually advised that you should take it into a

The alternative would be to paint your car at home – which many people do – however this is more time consuming and can be quite messy unless you have the right tools. If you're only touching a small area on your car, it's possible to do this fairly easy with high quality auto paint from a can. But using spray paint from a can isn't recommended for painting an entire car. Not only will this take a long time, but it can be very expensive and won't guarantee you a good result.

The Benefits of Using Compressed Air
When you take your car to a garage to be painted, the mechanics there will always use compressed air. The reason for this is that compressed air is a reliable, clean and cheap method of painting large areas. It can be easily stored and the tools required are much lighter and faster than their electrical equivalents, which means you can be much more precise when painting. And the best part is that all of these benefits are ultimately passed on to you – the customer – in the form of low costs and a great finish for your car.

If you decide to paint your car at home using an air paint spray gun, it's imperative that you find the right air compressor and air delivery system, as well as the right spray gun. Valuable tools such as these can be picked up from reputable retailers such as www.scot-industrial-air.co.uk. In addition, you should learn as much as you can about what technique you should be using. However the only way to really learn is to practice – before testing out your paint skills on your car.
