What is the best compressor for spray painting cars?

Automotive mechanics can use ELGi's single-stage direct drive piston air compressors for:

  • Tyre Inflation – Compressors make the task of tyre inflation easy, and will help maintain safety and reliability of your automobile.
  • Automobile Finishing – One of the most important steps of auto manufacturing is automotive finishing. The paint and clear coat serve as protective coatings to shield the vehicle from the elements. Improper automobile finishing leads to formation of thin films, dry spay, crater, bubble and ripples which further leads to weakening of the paint and the automobile becomes vulnerable to rust and decay.
  • Air Tools - Most of the garages are shifting to air tools powered by compressed air due to their increased efficiency from the traditional electric powered tools. One of the major advantages of using pneumatic tools over electric tools is the light weight and lower operating cost.
