f You may only spray coating materials such as paints,
varnishes, glazes, etc. with a flashpoint of 38°C and
higher without additional warning.
f The device may not be used in workplaces covered
by explosion-protection regulations.
f There must be no sources of ignition such as,
open fires, smoke of lit cigarettes, cigars
and tobacco pipes, sparks, glowing wires, hot
surfaces, etc. in the vicinity during spraying.
f Do not spray any substances whose hazard potential
is not known.
f Before working on the spray gun remove the power
plug from the socket.
f Do not use the spray gun to spray flammable subtances.
f The spray gun are not to be cleaned with flammable
solvents which have a flashpoint under 38°C.
f Be aware of dangers that can arise from the use
of the sprayed substance. Observe the safety information
on the containers and the specifications given
by the substance manufacturer.
f Do not spray outdoors on windy days.
f Wear protective clothing to keep paint off skin and hair.
f Never aim spray gun at any part of the body.
f Use a respirator or mask if vapors can be inhaled.
Read all instructions supplied with the mask to be sure
it will provide the necessary protection.
Coating Materials Suitable for Use
Solvent-based and water-soluble lacquer paints, glazes,
impregnations, clear varnishes, synthetic enamels,
coloured paints, alkyd resin varnishes, primers, radiator
paints, anti-rust paints, special-effect paints, textured paints.
Coating Materials not Suitable for Use
Materials that contain highly abrasive components, caustic
solutions and acidic coating substances. Flammable materials.
1. Material preparing
Before spraying, the material being used may need
to be thinned with the proper solvent as specified by
the material manufacturer.
Warning! Never exceed the thinning advice
given by the coating manufacturer.
The viscosity cup attached healps measure the
viscosity of paint. Hold the test cup up and measure
the time in seconds until the liquid empties out (Fig. B).
Note: Material to be sprayed should always be
strained to remove any impurities in the paint which
may enter and clog the system. Impurities in the paint
will give poor performance and a poor finish.
2. Attach carrying belt (Fig. C and D).
Attach the belt to the fixer on the main housing,
and adjust to a suitable length easy for carrying.
3. Assemble pickup tube (Fig. E)
When spraying objects overhead, turn suction tube
back, and turn clockwise to fix the container. When
spraying horizontal surfaces, turn suction tube forward,
and turn clockwise to fix the container.
4. Spray pattern settings (Fig. F)
Three different spray jet settings can be chosen on
the spray gun, depending on the application and
target object.
Important! The air cap can only be turned at an angle .
Do not force.
Warning! Danger of injury!
Never pull the trigger while adjusting the air cap. Never
toward the nozzle to your eye or skin. Test the setting on
a scrap.
1. Attach hose coupler (Fig. G and H)
2. Switch on
"1" swith on, "0" switch off.
3. Spray volume setting (Fig. I)
Reduce or increase the spray volume by turning the
Note: A coarse pattern will be obtained when setting
the tool for high volume when working with thin paint.
Always test the setting on scrap before applying
material to the surface. Increase the spray volume
when working with high viscosity paints.
4. Spray distance and tips (Fig. J and K)
f Hold the paint spray gun upright and maintain a
constant distance of about 10-30 cm to the object
being sprayed.
f Move the paint spray gun evenly either from side to
side or up and down.
f Always start and stop spraying outside the target
f Clean the paint build on the nozzle and air cap.


1. Unplug the power plug. Turn open the container
and pull the trigger guard and let the paint into
the original paint container.
2. Disassemble the spray gun. Press down the unlock
button downwards. Pull out the sprayer. (Fig. L)
3. Clean the sprayer. Unscrew the container. Empty any
remaining coating material back into the material tin.
Use only solvents with a flashpoint over 38°C . (Fig. M)
4. Assemble the gun again. (Fig. N).
Caution! Never clean seals, nozzle or air holes of the
spray gun with metal objects. The seal parts are only
solvent-resistant to a limited extent. Do not immerse in
solvent, only wipe.
