Safety Instructions for Precision Spray Systems

  • Keep work area clean, well lit and free of containers of paints or solvents, rags and other flammable materials and substances. Possible risk of spontaneous combustion. Keep fire extinguishers in working order at all times. Ensure good ventilation in the application area and sufficient fresh air supply throughout the room. Flammable solvents that evaporate create an explosive environment.
  • Do not apply or clean with products or materials with a flash point below 21°C. Use water-based, low-volatility hydrocarbon, or comparable products, materials or materials. Volatile solvents evaporate and create an explosive environment.
  • Do not apply in the area of ignition sources such as static sparks, open flames, ignition flames, hot objects, engines, cigarettes and sparks from connecting and disconnecting electrical cables or from the use of switches. Such sources of sparks can cause the surrounding area to ignite.
  • Do not apply products that you do not know are hazardous. Unknown products can create hazardous conditions. Wear additional personal protective equipment such as protective gloves and a corresponding mask or respirator when applying or handling chemicals. Wearing protective equipment appropriate for the conditions reduces exposure to hazardous substances.
  • Do not apply product to yourself, other people or animals. Keep your hands or other body parts away from the spray. If the spray gets on your skin, seek medical attention immediately. The spray can penetrate the skin even through a glove and enter your body.
  • Do not treat a spray penetration as a simple cut. A high pressure spray can inject toxic substances into the body and cause serious injury. If injected, seek medical attention immediately.
  • Be aware of the various risks and hazards that can be caused by the spray. Observe the markings on the containers or the manufacturer’s information on the spray product, including the requirement to use personal protective equipment. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions to reduce the risk of fire, as well as the risk of injury from toxins, carcinogens, etc.
  • Never spray material without the nozzle head attached. Use of a special nozzle element with a fitted nozzle head reduces the likelihood of toxins being injected into the body by the high-pressure spray passing through the skin.


Connection of the device
The product may only be operated with clean, condensation-free and oil-free compressed air and a maximum working pressure of 8 bar at the device may not be exceeded. In order to regulate the air pressure, the compressed air source must be equipped with a pressure reducing valve (with filter). To use this device, you need a quick-coupling pressure hose and a corresponding compressed air source. Observe the operating and safety instructions of the compressed air source and the special instructions for paint preparation. Note: Make sure that the working pressure is correct. Too much working pressure leads to too much fine distribution and too fast evaporation of the liquid. Surfaces become rough and adhesion is poor. On the other hand, if the working pressure is too low, the paint is not sprayed sufficiently. This results in wavy surfaces and dripping. Connect the quick-coupling pressure hose to the compressed air connection of the unit. It is automatically locked. Set the working pressure at the filter pressure reducer of the compressed air source to 3 bar.

Preparation of the application surface

  • Thoroughly and extensively cover the area around the application surface. All uncovered surfaces may otherwise become soiled. Ensure that the application surface is clean, dry and free of grease. Lightly scrape smooth surfaces and then remove any dust resulting from sanding.
  • Turning the unit ON/OFF Working instructions: Open the purge while working.

Switching the unit ON/OFF. Working instructions:

  • Open the purge while working.
  • When thinning, make sure that the product to be applied and the thinner are suitable for each other. If the wrong thinner is used, lumps may form and clog the gun. Screw the tank onto the gun clockwise.
  • Pour the material to be applied into the tank and screw on the lid.
  • Always hold the gun at an equal distance from the object. The ideal application distance is approx. 15 cm.
  • Determine the appropriate settings by means of a test run.
  • Do not switch the device on/off above the application surface, but start and end the procedure approx. 10 cm outside the application surface.
    To turn the gun on, press and hold the trigger. To stop operation, release the trigger.
  • Adjustment of the paint jet
    The unit has round and flat spray settings.
  • Round spray setting:
    Use the round spray setting, for example, for small surfaces, corners and edges. Turn the adjuster clockwise.
  • Flat Spray Adjustment:
    • Use the flat spray vertically and horizontally for large surfaces.
    • Turn the adjuster counterclockwise. The nozzle head can be continuously adjusted vertically and horizontally to the desired position by turning.
  • Adjusting the amount of paint
    Notice: The front locking screw serves to limit the adjustment range of the stop screw.
    Increasing the paint quantity: Turn the stop screw counterclockwise. Decreasing the amount of paint: Turn the stop screw clockwise.
  • Adjusting the Air Amount
    Note: It is recommended to start with the maximum air volume. To do this, open the air volume control to the maximum setting as described below under
    “Increasing the air volume”.
  • Increasing the air volume :
    Note: Increasing the air volume is usually a good idea if the spray pattern is too coarse. Turn the air adjustment counterclockwise.
  • Decreasing the amount of air :
    Notice: Decreasing the amount of air is usually a good idea if the paint mist is too heavy. Turn the air adjustment clockwise.

Maintenance and cleaning

  • Notice: Thorough cleaning after each use is very important for safety and proper operation.
  • Otherwise, for example, the nozzle will be clogged and the perfect functioning of the device will not be ensured. When cleaning, wear suitable protective gloves.
  • Do not use halogenated solvents containing hydrocarbons such as trichloromethyl, ethylene chloride etc., as these react chemically with certain materials in the spray gun. Dangerous reactions may result.
  • CAUTION: Never soak the gun completely in solvents.
  • After each use, spray thinner (outdoors only – risk of explosion!) or water through the unit. Use the supplied brush or a cloth to clean the body of the unit. Never use petrol, solvents or cleaning agents that could attack the plastic.
  • First, unscrew the nozzle head by turning it counterclockwise.
  • Loosen and remove the nozzle by unscrewing it counterclockwise with the supplied mounting wrench. Carefully clean the needle and nozzle with the brush.
  • After cleaning, screw the nozzle head back on clockwise and tighten it with the supplied mounting wrench. To protect against rust, you can run sewing machine oil through the product after cleaning. Oil the moving parts from time to time. j The cleaned nozzle, thread and seal should be lightly treated with grease. Do not use silicone lubricants. Store compressed air equipment only in dry rooms.
