Use only water-based or oil-based (mineral spirit-type) materials with flash point greater than 100° F

(38° C). Do not use materials which state “FLAMMABLE” on the packaging. For more information about your material, request MSDS from distributor or retailer.

Use oil-based material outdoors or in a well-ventilated indoor area with a flow of fresh air.

Spraying certain materials may cause static build-up in the sprayer that can result in static shock to

the user. If this occurs, first ensure the material has a flash point greater than 100° F (38° C) and does not state that it is FLAMMABLE anywhere on the package. If still feeling a static shock, the material likely contains a non-mineral spirits fluid such as, but not limited to, xylene, toluene, or naphtha, which can build up static. Switch to an alternative material.

Spraying Stains or Clear Coats

(Fine-Finish Optimizer)

The Fine-Finish Optimizer should be installed and used when spraying thin material such as stain or clear coats.

The Fine-Finish Optimizer restricts the material flow resulting in a finer quality finish.

Use only water-based or oil-based (mineral spirit-type) materials with flash point greater than

100° F (38° C). Do not use materials which state

“FLAMMABLE” on the packaging. For more information about your material, request MSDS from distributor or retailer.

Spraying certain materials may cause static build-up in the sprayer that can result in static

shock to the user. If this occurs, first ensure the material has a flash point greater than 100° F (38° C) and does not state that it is FLAMMABLE anywhere on the package. If still feeling a static shock, the material likely contains a non-mineral spirits fluid such as, but not limited to, xylene, toluene, or naphtha, which can build up static. Switch to an alternative material.

Use oil-based material outdoors or in a well-ventilated indoor area with a flow of fresh air.

Keep spray area well-ventilated. Keep a good supply of fresh air moving through the area.
