Aerosol VS HVLP gun applications.

is the only reason for using aerosol as opposed to firing up the compressor and guns for volume of production and cost minimization if your small time or preference? i purchased a couple aerosol paints,primers and activator but only for testing purposes. Just wondering how you all felt about it.

    Spray cans are good for small jobs but not recommended for activator

    If you are looking for consistent, reliable results... aerosol is not going to do the trick.

    @Dcerasoli123 Yes we are on the west coast...and like @WileECoyote mentioned, production doesn't have anything to do with it having the proper tools or want professional results? Then you want professional tools...period...

    Aerosol paints specifically made for this process perform the same as the equivalent products in quart cans. Activator is another story. Aerosols simply don't atomize properly to get consistently good results.

    If you don't have time or can't afford to "fire up the compressor", then this might not be the business for you.

    @LiquidDreams Well...aerosols that are store bought...not necessarily aerosols in general...however, most underactivation problems I see on the forum usually start with aerosol activator...and then go downhill from there...same with lifting paint...
