Car body spraying – quality is more than just chance
With over 20 years in the car body spraying industry we know that achieving a good quality spray job is far more than just chance. There are so many factors that go into high quality spraying and that is what makes it a specialised job, only experienced repair specialists should take on a vehicle respray using the right spray guns and a low bake oven as controlled conditions are vital.
Consistent quality relies upon dependable conditions and the best equipment available, HVLP sprayguns, air dryers before the air goes into the oven, a quality low bake oven with multiple are changes per minute. A good oven removes all the overspray before it has a chance to settle back onto the sprayed car, giving a higher quality finish.
There is a certain amount of chance to car body spraying but as professionals we control our destiny by eliminating all the possible negative possibilities.
What factors go into good car body spraying?

Air temperature – its must be set just right about degrees is about right.
Masking – all the masking must be clean and tight so no paint gets on the car.
Paint mixture – the paint mixture needs to be correct for the temperature.
Spraygun set up – all sprayguns must be adjusted right for the perfect spray pattern.
There are many more factors but the above give you an idea of whats involved in doing quality car body spraying.
The final stages of good car body spraying
With the car all masked up and in the low bake oven ready for spraying the final stages are close. There are always a few nerves at this point because even the best experienced repair specialists and car sprayers know that anything can go wrong.
What could go wrong? The spray gun lid could become lose and drip on the job, the masking could lift on an edge and create dust on the job, the paint sprayer could step on the airline and restrict the air to the spraygun, the airline could touch the car body when moving around the job and many more things that we care not to mention.
