I want to do a number of small paint jobs in 2pack. I've read about the dangers and I wonder if anyone can assist with the respirator side.

I've seen respirators where the claim is that for small jobs and occasional use you can use a face mask with a suitable filter.

However, being already slightly asthmatic and not wanting any risk of it getting worse, I'd like to go one step further and use an airline feed ( together with hooded overalls & gloves ).

At the simplest, can these respirators be connected to a modest compressor ( with in-line filter )? I've got a 50l compressor and I don't anticipate each painting session lasting very long as the bits I'm doing are fairly small.

Thanks.

nothing less than 3M 4251 mask, ideally a air fed mask tbh I would do the parts in Lechler ACRIFAN/MACROFAN as its a lot less toxic

As for the air 3hp 50L tank with a decent filter should be fine

Most paint shops will do 250ml (1/4 of a litre) paints4u do little 100ml tins mixed to order

I use to do a lot of car interior stuff with a devilbliss dagr with a 1oz cup, I only do items for my self now - the picture below are parts I did for my self a few years ago - raw plastics - cleaned and prepped - 2 coats of clear plastic primer - 3 of grey primer - 4 of basecoat - 4 of 1k glass lacquer all done in lechler paints - basecoat mixed with lechler medium speedy hardener and the matching thinner

Thanks.

Any recommendations for an airline filter?

Useful to know about small quantities from paints4u.

Thanks again.

Rather you than me :shock: Where are you going to be using the 2K, in your garage, shed? Any spray paint is nasty, but neighbours get a bit upset when their plants start shrivelling, and then the environment police come along ...................... :stop:
