What do you wear on your face for spraying?

Post by GreenMachine on March 9th 2011, 4:40 pm

I plan on spraying once I get done sanding, and am wondering what some choices on face protection would be.

I wore a filtered respirator when I sprayed mine.

I mixed my paint @ 3:1. Some say 2:1. I thought it was a little to thin when I sprayed it. Make sure you let your paint tack good before spraying your next coat.

^ That is what you want. Thise little paper dust/nose things are worthless. All they really do is make people THINK they are being safe.

They work very good. I have to wear them at work. Every year we have to change them out. Instead of throwing mine away I'll bring it home.

I don't know what you are wearing them for but I hope you change the filter canisters once in a while.
