I taped plastic sheeting over the lights in the paint booth with masking tape. I've done this several times before and after I'm through sandblasting, and sweep up the sand blast sand, I'll take a hose and hose the ceiling, walls and floors right down. I'll just leave these wrapped up for a while because I'll be bringing the body in to do a little more sandblasting on it. Plastic and masking tape hold up surprisingly well.


I taped up the air regulator so it's kind of loose so I can adjust the air pressure.


This shows the door open about 4 inches to the paint booth. If I push the door in another 2 inches the suction will draw the door shut. I'm showing you this because I want to explain how this booth with negative pressure works.


I just walked out of here from sandblasting with supplied air on. You can't hardly see looking from here, but close up I can see really good.


Now you can see how clean the air is outside the booth with a negative pressure booth. I can step out of there and be in clean air and take that paper suit off. You can see through the window how cloudy it is. This negative pressure also works good for painting. you can have your helper outside mixing paint, etc. and he won't be in the fumes, well in this case the bride would be out mixing the paint.
So that's how it goes..a negative pressure is sucking air into the booth where a positive pressure would be pushing some air out, although minimal.
It takes a little while to get the air cleared out in the booth but because I'm set up for low air movement I don't get the dirt in the paint. My paint jobs come clean.
