When paint is scattered on a surface from a device utilizing pressurized air, the process is called spray painting. This spray painting is done with the aid of paint sprayers. The spraying must be performed in a controlled environment. These days, there are booths where all this is done. While doing the paint spraying, the operators must have gear that will protect them at all times. Other than the head to toe overall, the gear must include glasses, a mask to protect them from the fumes and boots.
These paint sprayers atomize the paint so that it becomes easy to apply and is done much faster. Uniform application is another advantage of using the paint sprayers. The atomization process disperses paint in the atmosphere and therefore cannot be done in the open air. Such hazards can only be prevented by utilizing the spray booths, or spray ovens as they are called.
After every two years, all spray booths must comply with the Local Exhaust Ventilation test according to the Environmental Protective Act 1990. This secures all the surroundings and ensures that the environment is properly guarded. This is one of the maintenance stone that cannot be left unturned.
The next thing that needs to be taken into consideration is the quality of the spray done on all the bodyworks. Do not sink your garage’s reputation because of using bad and shoddy paint. Strive to make your work stand out in the best manner possible. Never risk the reputation of your garage.
To maintain maximum performance of the booth, you must install quality filters on the air inlet and extraction systems. The filters will become ineffective after they get worn from prolonged use after a period. Thus, after a certain definite period, the filters must be replaced. Filters are of different types so do not just buy and install them just for the sake of doing so. The most recommended ones are the high efficiency versions and fibre filters.
During spraying, whatever is needed must be housed inside the spray booth. These enclosures must have access to clean water for emergency utilization and also for cleaning. There are other paints that require water for mixing. Depending on the type of application, the booths differ in size and shape.
Examples of surfaces where painting can be done are benches, vehicles, window grills, gates, etc. For the surface to be housed in the garage, it only needs to hold and sustain the sprayed paint. Always remember that the spray booth is not just a normal enclosure just like any other. The spray booth must be designed and constructed by experts. The spray booth must be properly maintained if you want to have a good reputation and reap high profits.
