We’re often asked what type of objects can be spray painted in our spray booth, and the short answer is lots! Here at APT Spray Painting, we believe spray painting is the best way to achieve a professional commercial finish on a product.
One of the reasons why we stand by this belief is because spray paint can be applied to a massive range of materials, unlike other painting methods such as powder coating. Objects can be finished using a variety of techniques, colours and paints, and achieve a thick, protective covering at the same time. In this article, we outline a few of the most popular items that make their way through our spray booth, and how they have benefited from the application of spray paint
If it fits in our spray booth, we can paint it!
The most efficient and effective way to apply spray paint to an object is in a spray booth. The ventilated and controlled environment ensures that no dust, debris or dirt settles on the surface of the wet paint, creating ugly and uneven bumps. Achieving a smooth, even finish is the goal of all spray painting technicians, and this is only possible in a spray booth. So now that you know why we conduct only booth spray painting services here at APT Spray Painting, what exactly can fit in the booth? Our semi-downdraft spray painting booth is 10m x 5m x 3m. Anything (except for a few rare materials) that fits within those dimensions can be spray painted. It’s that simple.
Materials that can be booth spray painted
Spray paint can be applied to a diverse range of materials including common substrates such as plastic, metal, glass and timber. Specialty metals such as those found in the aerospace and motorsports industries, and the military, can also be booth spray painted. Carbon fibre, cast alloy, acrylic, zinc anneal and melamine can all undergo spray painting as a hardy finish to a product. If you have an object made of unusual material and aren’t sure whether spray paint will provide a suitable finish, contact the team at APT. We can discuss the properties of our paints to deduce whether they will complement your item.
