use my mig mix to spray raptor liner?

Alright, strange question, but....

My air compressor is shot, and I dont have time to fix it right now. The smallest rental I can find is $50 a day, and I dont feel like buying a new one..

I do have a 125 CF tank of mig mix (75:25, CO2:Ar).........

See where I'm going with this..........any foreseeable disaster in using this to spray my raptor liner?

(If there was a chemical issue Id be more concerned about the CO2 than the Ar, since it's inert)

Never seen or heard of that being done....really no idea how inert gas would effect it since any spray painting relies on the "atomization" of the spray when sprayed...which means when it hits the air it relies on the small particles transfered in the air to "activate" its curing proess...
I would think an inert gas would really put a hurtin on that ...

I could see maybe a coating that can be also rolled on..but..if i am correct,raptor liner is spray only..so i would wonder if it will work.

Only way to really know?...try a little test sample on something and let sit for a few days to see if it really effects the curing of it.
