From Automotive Masking Paper to Trimaco E-Z Clean™ Goggles, Trimaco offers a variety of products geared towards the production and maintenance of cars and vehicles. Whether it be a DIY quick-fix for your car or a professional paint job, here are our six recommended products that will keep you and your automotive protected from start to finish.
It is important to take safety precautions in your workspace when handling chemical products and auto body paint. Before you get started on an automotive paint job, you should protect vulnerable parts of your body, especially the eyes. Trimaco’s E-Z Clean™ Goggles are lightweight and comfortable, allowing for long-term wear and maximum protection.
Next, cover the walls and floors of your work area with Trimaco’s Aqua Shield Spray Booth Protection. Its bright, neutral white color prevents a tainted finish on your vehicle while also preventing unwanted dust, overspray and dirt. The Aqua Shield Spray Booth Protection is flame-retardant, leakproof, slip resistant, anti-static and durable. It is a must-have on your list of automotive paint job needs.
Before starting a paint body job, painters should use Automotive Masking Paper to protect portions of the vehicle, like windows, tires, or mirrors. Masking paper ensures a concise paint job. Additionally, it prevents paint overspray and spills in unwanted areas of the vehicle.
Trimaco offers the following masking paper options to best suit your painting needs, especially when wet sanding, priming and finishing your vehicle:
– Poly-Gold Plastic Coated Masking Paper: High-quality masking paper with a coating that will not delaminate. Ideal for wet sanding.
– White Masking Paper: Prevents bleed through, is great for wet sanding, priming and finishing.
– Poly-Blue Coated Masking Paper: Composed of newsprint paper with a laminate.
– Green Masking Paper: Ideal for priming and finishing coats (available in 30#, 35# and 40#).
Now that your work area is prepped, the paint job can begin. We recommend using Trimaco’s SuperTuff Pump Strainer to improve the quality of your paint job, therefore reducing the impurities coming through your spray gun. This product filters paint, varnish and lacquer with 600 micron mesh. The SuperTuff Pump Strainer eliminates clogging in the spray unit and ensures a filtered, clean spray.
It is essential to have our Microfiber Wonder Rags® on hand in preparation of unwarranted auto paint spills and splatter. Wonder Rags are made of a unique, highly absorbent microfiber material and are streak and lint-free. From cleaning up spills to polishing surfaces, Wonder Rags are a necessary tool in your automotive paint job process.
Lastly, we recommend Trimaco’s Protective Car Covers. Our Car Covers protect your vehicle from paint overspray and grime throughout the painting process. Car Covers protect larger portions of the vehicle. Car Covers can also serve as a protectant of fresh paint. The non-woven material, double-stitched seams and elastic border conform to your car size and are available in a variety of sizes. This ensures a perfect fit to your vehicle.
