I'm posting this here 'cuz I didn't want to hijack the "clearcoat not flowing well" thread. Sorry if this should be in different forum

MARTINSR - you posted that a 10 cfm wasn't enough air to paint with. I just put in a husky 60 gallon with 10.3 cfm at 90 psi. Am I screwed? I'm not planning on putting on base and clear, just shooting epoxy primer after doing body work.

thanks for the help!

its all going to depend on the air requirements of the gun you use. alot of hvlp guns use alot of air. 13cfm and up. some of the newer guns we are now seeing that number go down a little. my iwata uses 9cfm and i have a walcom slim s which uses 6 and is made for primers and thicker materials. find out what your gun requires and that will answer your question. if your just doing a small part here and there it wont matter much with a 60gal reserve but anything else and you will be running your compressor into the ground.

At what psi is he saying 10 scfm? Certainly 10.3 scfm at 90psi is quite sufficient for spray painting.

My compressor is only 8 CFM at 90 PSI, but with the hvlp
gun I use at 30 PSI my compressor hardly runs.
Like the others said, check your cfm requirements of your gun.
At the lower PSI's you use a lot less air.
10 CFM @ 90 is a lot considering a gun spraying at less than half
the PSI. Now air sanders is a different matter, my compressor can't
keep up with some of those.
