Re: Spraying gelcoat

Any decent quality air tool will have the cfm req at either 40 psi or 90 psi listed on the box.

3M™ Accuspray™ System. HVLP Primer Gun which runs on about the lowest air possible (a good 3 HP will keep up )

It is a kick-ass product the disposable parts are CHEEP and the PPS cups let you spray solvent in seconds with ZERO mess

The PPS cups come in a bunch of sizes and save you a LARGE fortune in clean up solvent use and disposal


Its still really dangerous once you go beyond the preval sprayer or a small gun like the SATA mini-jet

Do not forget a good respirator. Never spray without one!
