Conservation of Capital If your money is not tied up in equipment costs, you’re free to spend it on other items such as inventory, advertising, research & personnel.

Fixed Payments Lock in payments - facilitate financial planning with stable payment structure.

100% Financing Eliminate the need for a down payment - use the cash elsewhere in your company for expansion.

Less “Red Tape” Additional equipment can be acquired without renegotiating existing loan covenants. Leasing is a fast, convenient alternative to borrowing or crossing your fingers and waiting for a windfall.

Enjoy Flexibility Longer terms, lower payments structured to fit your budget. Leasing is the least restrictive form of financing today.

Obsolescence Protections Avoid the risk of owning equipment that is no longer technologically useful or valuable - let the lessor assume the risk.

Tax Savings Payments on qualifying leases are written off as direct operating expenses, reducing current taxable income. Avoid negative impact of the alternative minimum tax or mid-quarter depreciation penalties.

Use Of Equipment Cost-cutting profit-making equipment installed immediately. Access to the equipment you need. When you need it, in order for your business to grow and prosper. Pay as you use!

FINANCING WITH FIRST PACIFIC FUNDING CONTINUED: Enhanced Cash Flow You pay only for the use of the asset, not its ownership. This makes for easier cash flow forecasting.

100% Cost Coverage All “soft� costs including insurance, maintenance taxes, training and installation shipping and software-right in the lease.

Credit Diversification Your bank lines are not burdened. Gives you leverage - leaving normal lines of bank credit undisturbed. Avoid restricting your ability to respond to opportunities and emergencies.

Purchase/Renewal Options At the end of your lease, you choose to purchase your equipment, upgrade to new equipment or continue to lease at substantial savings.

Off-Balance Sheet Source of Funds Experience more liberal credit criteria as there is no disturbance of your current debt ratio. Improve ROE/ROA and other ratios so that you may improve your ability to acquire funds.

Avoid Capital Budgeting Constraints Acquire needed equipment outside capital budget. Lease payments are usually paid out of operating budget.

INTRODUCTION TO UNDERSTANDING SPRAY BOOTH TECHNOLOGY Having a basic understanding of the types of paint spray booths available in today’s market will have a positive impact on making good purchasing decisions for your business. Containing the overspray and keeping it out of the air and off other objects is an important consideration in a spray finishing operation. This article looks at the primary method of controlling overspray in the spray booth. It discusses various types of booths and details periodic maintenance.

1. What is a spray booth? A compartment, room or enclosure of fireproof construction; built to confine and exhaust overspray and fumes from the operator and finishing system. There are various models available, designed for particular spray applications. Consult the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) pamphlet #33 and the O.S.H.A. requirements for construction specifications.

2. What are the benefits of a spray booth? A well-designed and maintained spray booth provides important advantages: It separates the spraying operation from other shop activities, making the spraying, as well as the other operations, cleaner and safer. It reduces fire and health hazards by containing the overspray. It provides an area that contains residue or overspray making it easier to keep clean. It also keeps both the operator and the object being sprayed cleaner. In a booth equipped with adequate and approved lighting, it provides better control of the finish quality.

3. What types of spray booths are there? There are two; the dry filter type and the water wash type.

4. What is a dry filter type spray booth? This booth draws overspray contaminated air through replaceable filters and vents the filtered air to the outside. It is the most common type of booth for most industrial applications. It is used for spraying low-volume, slower-drying materials, and is not affected by color changes.

5. What is an exhaust fan? A typical exhaust fan consists of a motor, a multiple blade fan, pulleys and belts. It removes overspray from the spray booth area. Contemporary exhaust fans are carefully designed to prevent overspray from coming into contact with the drive mechanism. Blades are made of non-sparking metal, and they move the maximum volume of air-per-horsepower against resistance such as exhaust stacks, filters, etc. (See NFPA 33

6. What is air velocity? Air velocity in a finishing operation is the term used to describe the speed of air moving through the empty spray booth.

7. What effect has air velocity on spray booth efficiency? Air must move through the booth with sufficient velocity to carry away overspray. Too low a velocity causes poor, even potentially dangerous working conditions, especially when the material contains toxic elements. It also increases maintenance costs. Too high a velocity wastes power and the energy required to heat make-up air.

INTRODUCTION TO UNDERSTANDING SPRAY BOOTH TECHNOLOGY CONTINUED: 8. What is a manometer? It is a draft gauge which indicates when paint arrestor filters or intake filters are overloaded. Some states and local codes require a manometer gauge on each bank of filters to comply with OSHA regulations.

9. What does an air replacement unit do? The volume of air exhausted from a spray booth is often equal to three or more complete air changes per hour. Under such conditions, the temperature may become irregular and uncomfortable. Excessive dust may become a problem. To prevent these conditions, sufficient “make-up” air must be introduced to compensate for the exhausted air. The air replacement unit automatically supplies this “makeup” air - both filtered and heated - to eliminate the problems of air deficiency.

10. What routine maintenance does a dry type spray booth require? (a) The continuous flow of air through the booth eventually loads the filters with dirt and overspray. Periodically, inspect and replace them with filters designed for spray booth use. (b) Monitor the manometer readings daily, and know what a normal reading should be. (c) Keep the booth free of dirt and overspray. Floors and walls should be wiped down after every job. Pick up scrap, newspapers, rags, etc. (d) Coat the inside of the booth with a strippable, spray-on covering. When the overspray on it becomes too thick, strip and recoat. (e) Periodically check the lighting inside the booth, and replace weak or burned out bulbs. Improper lighting can cause the operator to apply a poor finish.

11. What checks can be used to assure good results from a spray booth? (a) Maintain and replace intake and exhaust filters when necessary. (b) Caulk all seams and cracks where dirt might enter (c) Maintain and clean all equipment used in the booth (d) Keep operators’ clothing clean and lint-free. (e) Following these checks and guidelines can save you time and money while keeping your painting operation both safe and productive.

12. Why does Col-Met Auto Direct provide nut and bolt contruction for all of their spray booths? Nut and bolt contruction provides consistent structural stability and makes for simple installation. Our booths can also be easily uninstalled and reinstalled as necessary.

13. Can I install the booth myself? Yes, depending on the style and complexity of the booth. Col-Met Auto Direct also offers booth installation, call 888-479-5575 for more information
