Vacuum pump as air compressor?

Would a vacuum pump with enough power to reduce the air pressure down to 0.5 bar (-50%) also be capable to increase air pressure up to 1.5 bar (+50%)?

Any help is appreciated.

IF it is a piston pump, then it might be possible. Are you able to make the plumbing connections?

I'm thinking about using this one:

Be sure to mount the motor to some type of heat sink if you intend to run it for very long.

I'll do that. Thanks for the help
