(5)PREPARATION
Preparation of the surface and thinning of the paint are the two most important areas to be concerned
with to obtain the best results from your spray gun.
Ensure all surfaces are free from dust, dirt, rust and grease. If necessary rub down with sandpaper, or
similar.
Mask areas you do not wish to be painted.
(6)THINNING
Your spray gun is supplied with a viscosity cup. Viscosity is a technical term used to indicate if the paint
is very thin or very thick. If thin, the viscosity is said to be low, while if very thick the viscosity is said to
be high.
Viscosity is measured in seconds. In order to spray some paints they need to be “thinned” (diluted).
Thinning is very important when spraying. Most paints are supplied ready for brush application and may
need to be thinned (diluted) for spraying purposes.
Follow the manufacturers guide for thinning. If in doubt please contact the manufacturers of the paint.
The viscosity cup supplied will help you determine the correct thickness of the paint. Paint is “thinned”
by adding the substance which the paint is based upon. If water based paint then water is added, if oil
based then white spirit, if automotive paint then an automotive paint thinner is added.
As some paints, wood preservatives and other sprayable products contain particles. Please ensure that
when filling the paint container of the spray gun, that the paint is filtered through either a funnel with a
filter on it or through nylon tights or stockings. This will ensure that no large particles enter the paint
container, so preventing blockages and providing you with trouble free spraying. Ensure that a
facemask, gloves and goggles are worn at all times when spraying.

* These paints cannot be measured in the viscosity cup. To spray them, remove the
filter from the suction tube, thin according to manufacturer’s recommendations and
strain to remove any lumps or particles.
This spray gun can be used with paints having a viscosity ranging from 15 to 45
seconds. Dip the viscosity cup into the material and fill up. Time how long it takes for
the viscosity cup to empty (Fig.1). Using the above chart (or manufacturer’s
instructions) as a guide, determine if the material requires further thinning, if so then
thin accordingly.
Important: Before you begin to thin the paint, ensure it is stirred thoroughly.
Fig.1
If the paint requires thinning, start with a 10% dilution of the paint. To do this, half fill the paint container
with the required paint. The viscosity cup supplied with the unit holds 1/10 of a litre, block the hole in
the viscosity cup and fill up with the required thinner. Add the thinner to the paint and stir, measure the
viscosity using the recommended viscosity chart above.
If the paint requires further thinning, dilute the paint by another 5% (5% will be equal to half a viscosity
cup) with the required thinner and measure the viscosity, if the paint is not at it's recommended
viscosity, repeat the above step.
Note: Some paints are outside the ranges listed above. Please contact our helpline for further
information.

(7)PREPARING & USING YOUR SPRAY GUN
SAFETY WARNING!
DO NOT SPRAY FLAMMABLE MATERIALS (FLASH POINT < 21˚C). ALWAYS SPRAY IN A WELL
VENTILATED AREA. NEVER SPRAY NEAR NAKED FLAMES.
ALWAYS WEAR PROTECTIVE FACE MASK, GOGGLES, GLOVES & EAR
PROTECTORS WHEN USING YOUR SPRAYGUN.
MASK THE AREAS OF THE ITEM THAT YOU DO NOT WANT TO SPRAY
& PROTECT ANY ADJACENT AREAS THAT COULD BE AFFECTED BY
OVERSPRAY.
Before fitting the paint container, turn the spray gun upside down & put a few
Fig.2
drops of lubricating oil down the inlet and outlet spouts. (see Fig.2)
Plug the spray gun into a power socket & run the motor for one or two seconds
to distribute the oil around the cylinder & piston. Disconnect the power & push the Suction Tube & Filter
firmly into the inlet spout, which is the longer of the two spouts.
Fill the container with the prepared paint or other medium, which as a precaution should be filtered
through a suitable funnel that has a filter. As an alternative to a filter the paint can be poured through a
nylon stocking or tights. This should ensure there is no contamination of the paint that could block or
damage the spray gun. DO NOT FILL THE CONTAINER BEYOND THE MAXIMUM LEVEL
INDICATED.
Screw the spray gun tightly onto the filled container. Plug the spray gun into a power socket and it is
now ready to be set up.
SETTING UP THE SPRAY GUN FOR OPTIMUM PERFORMANCE
When setting up the spray gun we recommend that you spray the paint
onto some scrap material, newspaper or cardboard. Purge the air from the
spray gun by running it for a few seconds until the paint comes out of the
MAXIMUM
MINIMUM
gun.
The volume of paint & the spray pattern is controlled using the Output
CONTROL
KNOB
Control Knob, (see fig. 3). Turn the knob anti-clockwise to increase the
volume of paint sprayed & clockwise to decrease the amount of paint
sprayed.
A good spray pattern is achieved when there is an even amount of paint
in a fine spray throughout the pattern. A poor spray pattern will
concentrate the paint in the centre of the spray & give a blotchy finish.
To get the best spray performance, turn the Output Control Knob fully anticlockwise. Aim the gun at a piece of cardboard, or similar waste material,
Fig.3
& press the switch to start the spray gun. With the spray gun running, turn
the Output Control Knob clockwise until the best spray pattern is achieved.
If you are unable to achieve an even, fine spray you will probably need to thin the paint further. Follow
the thinning procedure as described under “Preparing the Paint”.
SPRAYING TECHNIQUE
To obtain best results keep the spray gun level & square to the surface being sprayed. The gun works
best if the nozzle is kept about 25 – 30 cms (10” – 12”) from the surface being sprayed. (See Fig. 4)
This will result in consistent, even coverage. To avoid overlap of the paint & therefore uneven coverage,
we recommend that the spray gun be momentarily turned off whenever you change direction.
Move the spray gun at an even speed. A fast speed will give a thin coat & a slow speed will give a thicker
coat. Never tilt the spray gun more than 45˚ as this could result in paint getting in to the motor & causing
serious damage.
8
Fig.4
HELPFUL HINTS
1) Only apply one coat at a time. If more than one coat is required follow the paint manufacturers
instructions for drying times.
2) If spraying small objects keep the output setting low as this will avoid
excessive use of paint & will minimise overspray.
3) When spraying large areas or objects use a criss-cross pattern
either left to right then up & down or vice-versa. Remember to
momentarily stop spraying as you change direction. This will ensure
maximum coverage. (See Fig. 5)
4) Avoid stopping and starting when spraying as this can lead to too
much or not enough material on a surface.
5) To ensure edges are covered begin spraying just outside the area being
sprayed & do not stop until you have just passed the opposite edge.
Fig.5
SPRAY NOZZLE SELECTION
The ASG100 spray gun is supplied with 0.6mm and 1.0mm nozzles, the ASG120 spray gun is also
supplied with a 0.8mm nozzle, these should be used as follows:
1) 0.6mm - This size works best for oil-based materials, stains, sealers, lacquers, water-proofers and
enamels for small application areas.
2) 0.8mm - This is a general purpose nozzle that works best for materials such as emulsions, latex
and thicker type paints.
3) 1.0mm - This nozzle is suitable for spraying woodcare treatments.
If when spraying you find that the spray pattern is small and splattery, and adjusting the output control
knob does not solve the problem, try a different nozzle size before further thinning the material.
USING THE FLEXIBLE EXTENSION TUBE.
Using the Flexible Extension Tube makes the painting of ceilings, floors & all
horizontal surfaces much easier. When fitted, the Flexible Extension Tube is bent
to avoid tilting the spray gun. Tilting the spray gun excessively can cause paint to
leak into the motor, causing serious damage.
TO FIT THE FLEXIBLE EXTENSION TUBE (SEE FIG.6)
1) Unscrew the spray gun nozzle by turning it anti-clockwise. Be sure to leave the valve in place but
check for wear.
2) Screw the end of the extension tube, with the
internal thread, tightly onto the spray gun.
Leaks may occur if the flexible extension is
loose or if excessive force is used to fit it. e.g.
NOZZLE
using pliers.
FLEXIBLE EXTENSION
3) Fit a swirl head into the end of the flexible
extension tube with the external thread.
4) Screw a nozzle onto the end of the flexible
extension tube.
5) Bend the flexible extension to the required
angle (45˚ maximum). Do not bend the
extention tube more times than necessary, as
SWIRL HEAD
repeated bending can cause premature failure.

(8)REMOTE PICK UP SYSTEM - (ASG120 only)
For larger painting tasks, use the Remote Pick Up System. This enables you to draw paint directly out
of a large can instead of using the paint container supplied with the spray gun, thereby saving
considerable time and making painting an even easier job. When using the remote pick up system
secure the Remote Pick Up Tube to the can using the Remote Pick Up Clip provided. If working from
a ladder, the can may be carefully hung from a rung on the ladder using a wire hook. We recommend
a maximum continuous spray time of 30 mins, with a minimum break of 20 mins before spraying again
to avoid fatigue.

●
ASSEMBLING THE REMOTE PICK UP SYSTEM (SEE FIG.7)
Unscrew and remove the paint container and remove the
Suction Tube and Filter from the inlet spout. If the spray
gun is being used for the first time, lubricate the piston and
cylinder before continuing. See ‘Preparing and Using your
Spray Gun’
Push the remote Pick Up Tube (2) firmly over the two
spouts of the cylinder moulding.
Fit the Suction Tube and Filter (3) securely to the same
side of the Pick Up Tube that is connected to the inlet
spout of the cylinder moulding.
Immerse the Suction Tube and Filter into the can of paint
and secure the Pick Up Tube to the can using the Remote
Pick Up Tube Clip (1).
When using the spray gun with the remote pick up system,
only use the gun in the normal upright position, to allow
excess paint to drain away down the Pick Up Tube.
PRIMING THE SPRAY GUN
When using the remote pick up system you must remove all the
air by priming the system as follows:-
1. Turn the output control knob fully anticlockwise to the
maximum position.
2
3
1
Fig.7
2. Make sure the spray gun is plugged in.
3. Hold the spray gun below the level of paint to speed the priming.
4. Aim the spray gun at a piece of cardboard or old newspaper, squeeze the trigger and hold until all
air is out of the system and paint is flowing freely from the nozzle. This should take about two
minutes.
WARNING- When using the Remote Pick Up system the filter, of the Suction Tube and Filter, must be
completely submerged in the paint at all times. If not completely submerged, air will be sucked into the
system and the piston may seize. If this happens, the sound of the gun will change to a low hum and
it will quickly become hot. Stop using immediately. Allow the gun to cool, then clean and lubricate the
gun throughly before re-using. - See cleaning instruction section on section .9.

(9)GENERAL CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS
After every use it is essential that you clean the spray gun thoroughly
This will prevent any blockages occuring and provide consistant performance when you next come to
use it. The spray gun contains moving parts. If not cleaned correctly, paint will dry and stop these
moving parts from working.
When you have finished spraying, empty any remaining material out of the paint container and clean it
thoroughly using the thinners required for the job.
Rinse the spray gun container with the thinners required for the job and spray through the gun onto
cardboard or newspaper, and follow the instructions below.
Refer to spare parts section on page 6 when carrying out the below.
●
●
●
Disconnect the spray gun from the mains
power.
Unscrew paint container (13) and pull out the
suction tube (12).
Unclip the filter from the suction tube (12).

●
Unscrew the spray nozzle (8,9 or 10) and
remove the atomiser valve (11), making sure
that the spring is not ‘stretched’ during
removal.
Unscrew the locking collar (7).
Remove cylinder housing (3 or 4) from the
motor housing, by pulling forward and down.
Remove the piston (6) and spring (5).
Submerge all of the components into a cleaning fluid compatible with the material being sprayed.
Clean all parts thoroughly.

●
●
Lightly oil the piston (6) and slide in and out
of the cylinder housing (3 or 4) to distribute
the oil over the mating parts.
Re-assembly is the reverse of the above.
REMEMBER - DO NOT USE FLAMMABLE THINNERS (except white spirit & turpentine
substitute)
CLEANING THE REMOTE PICK UP COMPONENTS
Run an appropriate thinners through the tube until it is clean. Disassemble the fittings at both ends
before any remaining paint dries, and thoroughly clean the remote pick up tube, suction tube and filter.
MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR
Please be aware that certain parts of this spray gun will wear, requiring replacement and that these
parts are not covered by guarantee. These parts include the valve, spray nozzle, piston and spring.
The wear on these parts depends on the abrasiveness of the paints being sprayed. The more abrasive
the paint, such as latex paint (emulsions) will cause these parts to wear much faster. You would
normally expect to replace an atomiser valve after spraying between 25-45 litres of latex.
A worn valve will cause a poor spray pattern and will require replacing. Replacement valves are
available from the Earlex Service Department (see page 16 for contact details).
You will need to check the spray nozzles, piston and spring from time to time to check for wear. Replace
if necessary.
NEVER DISPOSE OF PAINTS OR SOLVENTS INTO DRAINS. CONTACT YOUR LOCAL COUNCIL
TO ARRANGE COLLECTION.
