GETTING STARTED
Compressor
Though High Pereformance Plus Series airbrushes can function on minimal amounts of air,
their full versatility requires an adjustable or regulated air source with an air storage
tank. Other compressor considerations include the length of use while spraying
and the environment, or amount of space, you spray in.
These Iwata Studio Series models come equipped with an air regulator for precise
air adjustment:
• Smart Jet Pro: Good for small studios and normal use.
• Power Jet Lite: Good for normal studios and extended use.
• Power Jet: Great for normal studios and great for extended use.
• Power Jet Pro: Great for normal studios and great for extended use.
(Two regulators allow two airbrushes on same unit.)
Assembly
1. Screw the airhose onto the compressor.
2. Screw the airhose onto the airbrush.
3. If using a Smart Jet Pro, Power Jet, Power Jet Lite, or Power Jet Pro compressor,
adjust the pressure to between 10 and 15 psi.
4. Check for any air leaks in the compressor or airhoses.
5. Place a few drops of cleaning solution or water into the airbrush’s bowl.
6. Point the airbrush away from you.
7. Press down on the main lever (#7) to start airflow through the airbrush.
8. Pull the main lever back opening the airbrush’s nozzle.
9. Spray water through the airbrush to see how it sprays.
GENERAL OPERATION
Wide-Lines and Blending
1. Depress the main lever (#7).
2. Position the airbrush from 1/2 to 6 inches away from the surface.
3. Pull the main lever back much further to release more paint to cover
the bigger area.
• A longer distance to the paint surface produces wider lines.
• A shorter distance to the paint surface produces narrower lines.
• Increased air pressure increases spray width.
• Decreased air pressure decreases spray width.
• The maximum usable line width is approximately 2 inches.
Pre-Set Handle (#17)
A threaded adjusting screw mounted behind the handle limits the distance the main
lever can be pulled back. This provides accurate paint volume control and is especially
useful for repetitive, precision work.
Cutaway Handle
The cutaway handle allows quick paint clog removal without removing the handle
or needle.
1. Grip the exposed needle chuckling nut (#16) with your fingers.
2. Pull it back while simultaneously depressing the main lever (#7).
3. Repeat this process several times until the airbrush is clog free and
spraying normally.
• The increased paint flow past needle and nozzle tip removes many clogs.
• Don’t let the needle “snap” back into place. This could damage the nozzle.
Stippling
Iwata airbrushes are designed to produce a wide range of stippling textures.
1. Unscrew the needle cap (#1).
2. Unscrew the nozzle cap (#2).
3. Adjust the air pressure between 8 and 60 psi.
• Low air pressure creates coarse stipples.
• High air pressure provides fine stipple effects.
• Paint viscosity also effects stippling texture.
Air Pressure
Working pressures generally vary between 8 and 60 psi, depending on the type of
surface, the desired spray texture, and the paint’s viscosity.
Start spraying with 15 psi. If the spray is too grainy adjust the pressure up until the
desired spray consistency is reached.
• Different colors will behave differently.
• Different paint lines will behave differently.
• Spray thick paint with greater pressure.
• Spray thin paint with less pressure.
• Spray large paint amounts with greater pressure.
• Spray small paint amounts with less pressure.
WARNING: Do not exceed 98psi.
Paint Preparation
For non-specific airbrush paints, proper preparation, including filtering the paint
through a nylon mesh, is critical for best performance. Thin paint with its proper
solvent, and make repeated passes across the work to build up the color. This
improves your work’s quality and decreases your airbrush’s cleaning time.
• Airbrushes spray very thin paint easiest.
• Thin paint with its proper solvent.
• Filter paint through paint filters or mesh.
Safety Tips
• Always spray in well ventilated areas.
• Do not spray solvent based (flammable) paints around open flames.
• Use the appropriate respirator to safely filter out paint vapors particular to your
specific paint type.
• Wear eye protection to prevent paint contact with eyes.
• Never exceed the airbrush’s pressure limit (98 psi).

MAINTENANCE REFER TO MASTER PARTS LIST ON PAGE 9
Cleaning the Airbrush Between Colors
(A+, B+, C+, SB+ Only)
1. Dump out the color cup’s excess paint.
2. Rinse the cup with the appropriate cleaning solution.
3. Use a paper towel to wipe out any left over paint.
4. Fill the bottom of the cup with cleaner.
5. Spray cleaner until the spray is clear.
6. Add the next color to the color cup.
7. Repeat cleaning procedure when finished.
Cleaning the Airbrush Between Colors
(BC+ Only)
1. Remove the paint bottle.
2. Attach a bottle containing the appropriate cleaning solution.
3. Spray until the solution sprays clear.
4. Remove the bottle of cleaning solution.
5. Spray air until the airbrush sprays dry.
6. Attach a bottle containing the next color.
7. Repeat cleaning procedure when finished.
Cleaning the Needle (#4)
1. Unscrew the handle (#17) from the airbrush body.
2. Loosen the needle chucking nut (#16).
3. Gently pull the needle (#4) straight out.
4. Fold a soft cloth damp with cleaner over the needle.
5. Rotate the needle to gently wipe the residual paint off.
6. Carefully insert the needle into the airbrush until it seats fully against the nozzle
(#3). You should feel a positive stop. If you feel a spongey stop, you still have debris
in your nozzle.
CAUTION:The most probable time to damage the needle is when the
needle passes through the main lever (#7) and through the needle packing
screw (#5).
If the needle stops abruptly, retract and examine the trigger mechanism
for proper assembly and re-insert the needle.
7. Tighten the needle chucking nut finger tight.
• Pull the main lever back and forth to visually confirm the needle’s ability to move.
8. Screw the handle back onto the airbrush body.
Before Each Session
Spray water or the appropriate paint solvent through the airbrush to make sure the
airbrush is working properly.
After Each Session
Or any time the airbrush becomes clogged.
1. Increase the air pressure.
2. Spray cleaning solution for a short time.
3. Clean the needle if necessary
This cleaning method helps clean the paint passage, the nozzle, and the
needle thoroughly.

REPLACEMENT PARTS AND ACCESSORIES
Nozzle (#3)
In time, the nozzle may wear or be damaged and may need to be replaced.
1. Unscrew the handle (#17).
2. Loosen the needle chucking nut (#16).
3. Gently pull the needle (#4) part way back. It doesn’t need to be fully pulled out.
4. Unscrew the nozzle cap (#2)
5. Unscrew the nozzle counter-clockwise with the provided wrench.
6. Screw the new nozzle into the airbrush body with your fingers.
7. Slightly tighten the nozzle with wrench. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN!
8. Screw the nozzle cap onto the airbrush body.
9. Push the needle all the way forward until it seats with the new nozzle.
10. Tighten the needle chucking nut.
11. Screw the handle onto the airbrush body.
TIP: Keep a spare nozzle on hand for unforeseen accidents.
(Optional Accessory)
A quick disconnect joint is screwed onto the airhose and a quick disconnect adapter is
screwed onto each airbrush.When using multiple airbrushes the quick disconnect joint
facilitates changing airbrushes on the same airhose quickly.
Needle (#4)
Iwata needles are precision ground, hardened stainless- steel capable of withstanding
prolonged use. They are, however, easily physically damaged because of the long, tapered,
extremely fine tip. If the needle point becomes severely bent, it must be straightened
before pulling it back through the nozzle. If not, the bent needle might damage the nozzle
as it’s pulled through.
Side-feed Color Bottles and Cups
(Optional Accessory)
Several bottle sets and styles are available. From Crystal Clear bottles for water
based paints to the solvent impervious High Strength translucent bottles, Iwata-Medea
offers a wide assortment of bottles for every application. Chrome plated side
mounted cups are also available in 1/8 and 1/4 oz sizes.
TIP: Keep a spare needle on hand for unforeseen accidents.
Siphon-feed Color Bottles and Cups
(Optional Accessory)
Several bottle sets and styles are available. From Crystal Clear bottles for water
based paints to the solvent impervious High Strength translucent bottles,
Iwata-Medea offers a wide assortment of bottles for every application.
• Needles are sharp.
• Needle tips are bent easily.
Crown Cap
(Optional Accessory)
The crown cap physically protects the needle while spraying very fine lines. It also adds
to pigment build-up and spattering when spraying large backgrounds.
• Protects the needle
• Replaces the needle cap (#1)
• Adds to pigment build-up and spattering effects over large areas
Pistol Grip Moisture Filter
(Optional Accessory)
The Iwata-Medea Pistol Grip Moisture Filter delivers clean, dry air to your airbrush.
Miniature in size, the super-fine, 5-micron filter element performs like a full-size
filter separator.
The clear filter bowl allows visual inspection of built up moisture. Release the water
by pulling the spring-loaded release valve.
Quick Disconnect
