General work equipment

In the repair paint shop there is a range of painting tools which make the work of the painter easier and improve the quality of the repair paintwork.

Among these are small tools which are used for the following work:

  • Measuring beakers to measure and mix various paint materials.
  • Measuring rods with which the required combination amounts of paint and primer filler are gauged and mixed.
  • Viscosity measuring beaker with a calibrated opening of 4mm, used to set the correct paint viscosity.
  • Paint filter/paint sieve for filtering foreign bodies out of mixed paint or primer. Care must be taken that the correct filter is used for each paint.
  • Color sample plates onto which the mixed paint is applied, and the shade is then compared to that of the vehicle. Other aids which should help the painter to find the correct shade are color sample cards and color panels, which are offered by many paint manufacturers.
  • Dust bonding cloths which are impregnated with a tacky resin and which pick up dust particles particularly well. A surface to be painted must be cleaned with a dust binding cloth immediately before paint is applied.
  • Compressed air guns are used to remove sanding residues and to dry sanded surfaces.
