INTRODUCTION
The concept
A motor feeds out a high volume of air (HV) and enables products to be sprayed at a low pressure
(LP). The product is released from the Fluid Tip of the Spray Gun at a very low pressure (0.18 bar)
and is enclosed in a high volume of air. The Hose feeds the air produced by the motor to the
Spray Gun.
The powerful motor can spray a width range of paint with or without dilution. However, there will
always be some paint which will not be suitable for the Spray Gun. The good quality paint
contains a high percentage of dry particles which make the dilution easier. The users must keep in
mind that low temperatures make the paint thicker, that’s why we recommend spraying with the
Spray Gun with a 15 degrees minimum temperature.
PREPARATION
• Carefully cover areas which are not to be painted with a plastic cover and protective tape.
• Wear a suitable mask when spraying products (and make sure there is adequate ventilation in
the room when working indoors).
• Clean the surface you are going to paint. As well as being clean, it must also be dry and
smooth.
• Practice first on some old wooden planks to make sure you are holding the Spray Gun correctly.
• We recommend you wear protective clothing
• Stir the paint well using a mixer where possible.
• Make sure there are no solid particles in the paint.
• Many products can be sprayed without being thinned. However, if the application is not good,
thin the product progressively in stages of 5%.
• Most paints can be sprayed by being thinned just a little, e.g. by 5% or 10%.
• Some thick paints such as outer wall paints and certain undercoats will need to be thinned by
20% or 25%.
• Use water to thin a water-based product.
• Use white spirit to thin a solvent-based product.
• Certain manufacturers will indicate on the can whether a specific thinner is to be used.
The viscosity, which is expressed in DIN/sec, is the time it takes for the paint Fig. 1
to stop running as a continuous flow through the viscosity cup (Fig 1). Your
Spray Station 6900 comes with a 2.0mm Fluid Tip and a 2.0 mm Fluid Needle
fitted. For the best results with products which are more runny (liquid dyes,
varnishes, runny paints, wood dyes), we recommend that you purchase the
1.5 mm Fluid Tip and Fluid Needle. This applies for products which have a
viscosity between 25 and 50 DIN/sec, i.e., which will take between 25 and 50
seconds to run through the viscosity cup. Refer to the chapter on cleaning to
see how the Fluid Tip and Fluid Needle can be removed and switched for a
smaller/larger Fluid Tip and Fluid Needle assembly.
• Fill the Paint Container with the product to be sprayed. Stir well (as
mentioned above).
• Screw the Paint Container to the base of the Spray Gun and tighten accordingly.
• Unroll the motor unit air hose and attach it to the back of the Spray Gun.
• Unroll the power cable and attach the plug to the mains supply.
• Switch the Spray Station on. This will immediately cause some air to be produced, which is
quite NORMAL. However, none of the product will be sprayed until the Spray Gun trigger is
pulled.
Very important: when spraying for the first time, we recommend that you always leave the motor
to run for 1 to 2 minutes before applying the product. Do not forget that the Fluid Adjusting Screw
controls the quantity of paint sprayed, for instance the more the Paint Adjusting Screw is tightened
the less paint is sprayed.

Spraying Technique

15/1/09
SPRAYING TECHNIQUE
Horizontal and Vertical Spray
Vertical and Horizontal for normal sized jobs (Fig.2)
10:15
Page 5
Fig. 2
Round Spray
Round for small and precise jobs
The most commonly used technique for painting a
wall is the ‘crisscross’ technique, i.e. you apply the
Vertical Spray Horizontal Spray
product in horizontal lines and then cross over these
lines by applying the product in
vertical lines; (Fig. 3)
1) Adjust the Air Cap to obtain a Vertical spray, then pull the Trigger and
move your arm across to the right.
2) When you get to the end of the line, release the Trigger for a moment
and then apply the product in the opposite direction just beneath the
line you have sprayed.
3) Proceed in this manner applying the product in Horizontal lines one
underneath the other.
4) Next, adjust the Air Cap to obtain a Horizontal spray and apply the
product in horizontal lines over the lines you have just sprayed.
Release the trigger to avoid overspraying which will cause
the product to run.
Round Spray

Let go of the trigger at the
end of each spray
movement to avoid
excessive paint and drips
Cross over the horizontal lines (spayed with a Vertical pattern) with vertical lines (sprayed with a
Horizontal pattern). Only the fore arm must move not the wrist.

Cleaning
Clean with water
Clean with white spirit
Removing the Fluid Tip and Fluid Needle assembly (for cleaning or switching to a smaller/larger
diameter).
Flush out the residue paint from the spray gun, as follows:
Remove the paint container (25) from the spray gun.
Pour any residual paint into its original container for future use.
Use a cloth soaked in thinners to wipe out excess paint from the container, the underside of the
lid (22) & the gasket (23).
Pour a small quantity of clean thinners into the container, re-fit the container to the spray gun
and shake the gun lightly.
Now spray all of the thinners through the gun.
Repeat this, each time using clean thinners, until there is no trace of paint in the thinners
being sprayed.

To thoroughly clean the remainder of the spray gun, remove all working parts as per the
exploded spare parts drawing on p.3 as follows.
Loosen and remove Air Cap Ring (1), Air Cap (2) and Air Distributor Plate & Spring (3).
Now unscrew the Adjusting Screw (12) and pull out the Needle (9) and Needle Spring (11).
Use the supplied spanner, to remove the Fluid Tip (4) and Fluid Tip Seal (5).

All of the components above can be immersed in thinners and cleaned using the cleaning kit
supplied with this product. After cleaning your spray gun and before fitting the needle, dip the tip
into some vaseline which will lubricate the gland washers as the needle is inserted.
