Estimated Annual Savings On Paint Purchases
This graph highlights the dollar savings auto refinishing shops can realize in switching from conventional to HVLP spray guns. If painters use proper spray technique and gun settings, savings nearly double. Estimates are based on data from the STAR program* at the Iowa Waste Reduction Center, for a shop that refinishes 15 cars per week.
