WARNING! Read all safety warnings and all instructions. Failure to follow the warnings and instructions may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious injury. Save all warnings and instructions for future reference. The term “power tool" in all of the warnings refers to your mains-operated (corded) power tool or battery-operated (cordless) power tool. 1) Work area safety a) Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or dark areas invite accidents. b) Do not operate power tools in explosive atmospheres, such as in the presence of flammable liquids, gases or dust. Power tools create sparks which may ignite the dust or fumes. c) Keep children and bystanders away while operating a power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose control. 2) Electrical safety a) Power tool plugs must match the outlet. Never modify the plug in any way. Do not use any adapter plugs with earthed (grounded) power tools. Unmodified plugs and matching outlets will reduce risk of electric shock. b) Avoid body contact with earthed or grounded surfaces, such as pipes, radiators, ranges and refrigerators. There is an increased risk of electric shock if your body is earthed or grounded. c) Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions. Water entering a power tool will increase the risk of electric shock. d) Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord for carrying, pulling or unplugging the power tool. Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges or moving parts. Damaged or entangled cords increase the risk of electric shock. e) When operating a power tool outdoors, use an extension cord suitable for outdoor use. Use of a cord suitable for outdoor use reduces the risk of electric shock. f) If operating a power tool in a damp location is unavoidable, use a residual current device (RCD) protected supply. Use of an RCD reduces the risk of electric shock. 3) Personal safety a) Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common sense when operating a power tool. Do not use a power tool while you are tired or under the influence of drugs, alcohol or medication. A moment of inattention while operating power tools may result in serious personal injury. b) Use personal protective equipment. Always wear eye protection. Protective equipment such as dust mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection used for appropriate conditions will reduce personal injuries. c) Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure the switch is in the off-position before connecting to power source and/or battery pack, picking up or carrying the tool. Carrying power tools with your finger on the switch or energising power tools that have the switch on invites accidents. 4 ! GENERAL POWER TOOL SAFETY WARNINGS (cont.) d) Remove any adjusting key or wrench before turning the power tool on. A wrench or a key left attached to a rotating part of the power tool may result in personal injury. e) Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times.

NEVER use the spray gun outside when it is raining. 6 PREPARATION HVLP – HIGH VOLUME LOW PRESSURE Traditional spray guns require a compressor to spray with a constant pressure. Normal electric spray guns have an electromagnetic plunger to spray paint; the disadvantage of this is that there is no constant spray. The spray is actually pulsating. The HVLP electric spray gun has a powerful fan rather than a compressor. The fan provides a high volume of air with low pressure, resulting in a constant spray without the assistance of a compressor. Explanation Of The System The device works according to low-pressure spraying technique. A high volume of air surround the spray jet being ejected under low pressure. The air cap provides a very fine atomization with the lowest of spray mist .The coating material is applied to the object quickly and exactly. The air flow shortens the drying time for the coating material this gives perfect spraying result with a saving of coating material and is therefore good for the environment. Function Description The motor blower produces a flow of air which flows through the air hose to the spray gun. The air flow atomizes the coating material at the nozzle and also pressurizes the container. This pressure pushes the coating material up the ascending pipe to the nozzle. The air and pressure setting can be adjusted progressively. Note: For obtaining the best results from your spray gun, surface preparation and paint thinning are the two most important areas with which to be concerned. Ensure all surfaces are free from dust, dirt and grease. Masking is important to ensure you do not spray those areas you wish to remain untouched. Make sure paint is thoroughly mixed. Important – Selecting Paint Although a large number of paints and materials can be sprayed, some cannot. Please check manufacturer’s recommendation before purchasing paint. If the paint can refers to brush application only it cannot be sprayed. Materials Which Can Be Used Suitable for a range of oil and water based products recommended for spray application, including paint, varnish, stains and wood preservatives. Materials Which Cannot Be Used THE SPRAY GUN CANNOT BE USED FOR PAINTS SUCH AS EXTERIOR TEXTURED WALL PAINTS, MATERIALS CONTAINING ABRASIVE SUBSTANCES, GLAZES, DISPERSION PAINTS, CAUSTIC AND ALKALINE SUBSTANCES OR TEXTURED COATINGS. TO OBTAIN THE BEST RESULTS FROM YOUR SPRAY GUN, PLEASE READ THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY BEFORE USE. 7 PREPARATION (cont.) Thinning Thinning is particularly important when spraying. Most paints are supplied ready for brush application and need to be diluted sufficiently for spraying purposes. Follow the manufacturers guide for thinning in conjunction with a spray gun. If in doubt please consult the manufacturer of the paint. The viscosity cup supplied will help you determine the correct thickness of the paint. As some paints, wood preservatives and other sprayable materials contain particles and have different qualities, please ensure that when filling the paint pot on your spray gun, the paint is filtered through either a funnel with a filter on it, or through nylon tights or stockings. This will ensure no large particles enter the paint pot, therefore preventing blockages and providing you with trouble free spraying. Ensure that a face mask, gloves, goggles and ear protectors are worn at all times when spraying. Floetrol® is an acrylic paint conditioner that you can add to the paint pot which is for easy, trouble-free spraying. It helps thin your paint however also reduces wear and replacement cost of parts within the spray gun. It also reduces tip clogging avoiding freeze up in the trigger which gives you a professional finish. Floetrol® is available from Bunnings Warehouse. Determining Viscosity Information regarding dilution is normally found on the material tin. Use the viscosity table to determine the thickness of the coating material. First stir the spraying material thoroughly then to determine the viscosity, dip the viscosity cup into the material below the rim level and fill up. Lift the cup out of the tin and start timing as soon as the cup is above the surface. Time how long it takes the viscosity cup to empty (Fig. 1). Use the chart below as a guide to determine if the material requires further thinning and thin accordingly, within the material manufacturers recommendations. This runout time is called DIN seconds (DIN-s). Use this table as a guide only. Material Viscosity Seconds (DIN-s) Oil based paints 20-80 Primers 20-50 Clear vanishes 20-50 Water based paints 20-80 Oil enamel 20-80 Oil based primer 20-50 Oil stain undiluted Clear sealer undiluted Polyurethane undiluted Varnish 20-50 Wood preservatives undiluted 8 OPERATION 1. Attach air hose (10) to mobile base end (Fig. 2). Align the lug with the groove in the mobile base. Secure by turning anti-clockwise. 2. Attach the other end of the air hose (10) to the spray gun (3) (Fig. 3). Align the lug with the groove in the spray gun (3). Secure by turning anti-clockwise. Fig. 2 Fig. 3 3. Unscrew the paint pot (11) from the spray gun. 4. Adjust the suction tube accordingly. It should be possible to spray the contents of the paint pot leaving hardly any paint left in the paint pot (11). 5. Spraying with horizontal objects Turn suction tube forwards as the suction tube should be pointing toward the front of the spray gun (Fig. 4). 6. Spraying overhead objects Fig. 4 Fig. 5 Turn suction tube to point backwards as the suction tube should be pointing toward the rear of the spray gun (Fig. 5). By pointing the suction tube in the proper direction you will not have to refill the paint pot (11) as often. 7. Filling the paint pot While filling the pot with paint, filter the paint through a piece of nylon stocking or a funnel which incorporates a filter to remove any lumps or particles. DO NOT OVERFILL. Screw the pot into the spray gun ensuring it is secure. 8. Place the spray gun in the mobile base spray gun holder for transporting to the job. 9. Unwind mains cable (7). Insert the plug into mains power socket and switch On. 9 OPERATION (cont.) 10. Remove the spray gun from the mobile base spray gun holder and point at a piece of cardboard or newspaper. Turn on using On/Off switch (4) on the mobile base. Note: When the mobile base is switched on the air will flow continually from the air cap (1). 11. Adjusting the Spray Gun Fig. 6 10. Squeeze the trigger (12) while aiming the gun at a piece of cardboard or scrap material and wait the the spray to come out. Turn the spray regulator dial (13) to required position for optimum results (Fig. 6). Note: The spray regulator dial (13) is a stop that limits distance the trigger can be pressed. Fig. 7 Choice of spraying pattern (Fig. 7) A = vertical fan - for horizontal surfaces B = horizontal fan - for vertical surfaces A B C C = round fan - for corners, edges and other hard to access places. Adjusting the required spray pattern (Fig. 8): With the air cap nut loosened, turn air cap (1) to the required spray pattern. Fig. 8 Air cap nut 2 1 Caution: Never open trigger (12) when making adjustments on the air cap. Spraying Technique The spraying result depends considerably on now smooth and clean the surface is before spraying is begun. For this reason the surface should be carefully prepared and kept free of dust. Surfaces and parts not to be sprayed should be masked by covering with sticky tape and newspaper. It is advisable to carry out a trial spraying onto cardboard or a similar surface to find the most suitable spray gun adjustments. Note: Start spraying outside the surface to be sprayed and avoid stopping in the middle of the surface being sprayed. 10 OPERATION (cont.) Always hold the spray gun at an even distance from the object to be sprayed. The distance will very with the type of paint being sprayed, 20cm is suggested to start with and adjust if necessary. Move the spray gun evenly across or up and down, depending on the adjusted spraying effect (Fig. 9). Fig. 9 The movement of the spray gun should be by the arm rather than the wrist to ensure that the space between the spray gun and surface remains the same throughout the operation. Fig. 10 Uneven movement of the spray gun will give a uneven surface quality (Fig.10). A even movement of the spray gun will give a uniform surface quality. If coating material builds up on the nozzle (2) and air cap (1) (Fig.11). Remove the air cap nut and air cap (1). Clean both parts and around nozzle (2) with solvent or water using a stiff brush. Air cap nut 1 2 Fig. 11 If the nozzle (2) becomes blocked it can be removed by using a 9mm open ended spanner, carefully unscrew from the paint head. Clean the nozzle (2) and remove any paint build up. Be careful not to damage the nozzle (2) as this will affect the spray gun performance. Helpful Hints 1. Do not spray outdoors on a windy day as the results may be unsatisfactory. 2. Evenly control the speed of movement of the spray gun. A fast speed will give a thin coat and a slow speed will give a heavy coat. 3. Only apply one coat at a time. If a further coat is required follow the paint manufacturers instructions for re-coating and drying times. 4. If spraying small areas or objects keep the output setting low as this will avoid excessive use of paint and will minimise overspray. 5. When spraying large areas or objects, it is best to use a crisscross pattern, either from left to right then up or down or vice-versa. This will ensure maximum coverage (Fig. 12). Fig. 12 6. Avoid stopping and starting when spraying as this can lead to too much or not enough paint on a surface. 11 7. To ensure edges are covered, commence spraying just to the side of an area being sprayed, continue and do not stop until the spray has gone past the opposite edge. CLEANING Clean After Every Use After every use it is essential that you clean the gun thoroughly. This will prevent any blockages occurring and provide reliable performance when you next come to use it. 1. Turn off device. Open trigger so that the coating material in spray gun runs back into the container. 2. Unscrew the container. Return remaining material into the material can. 3. Clean the container. Remove the suction tube by turning counter-clockwise and pull gently to disassemble from the paint head. Disassemble the suction tube (Fig.13) for further cleaning by turning clockwise then pull to disassemble. Fig. 13 Note: Only use solvent with a flash point of over 21°C 4. Take note of the 3 holes on the suction tube, if blocked clean using the provided cleaning needle (Fig. 14). The 3 holes are used to pressurize the paint pot (11) for the paint pickup. If these holes are partially blocked it will result in uneven and inconsistent spraying. Fig. 14 5. Thoroughly clean the suction tube using clear solvent or water before reassembling. 6. Re-fit suction tube and fill container with solvent or water. 7. Screw container back in place. Turn on device and spray the solvent or water into a container. 8. Repeat the above procedure until clear solvent or water comes out of the nozzle. 9. Turn off device. 10. Then completely empty the container. Always keep the container seal free of coating material and check for damage. 11. If the housing of the gun requires cleaning dip a cloth in the solvent or water, ensuring the cloth is not dripping, wipe the exterior of the spray gun. 12. Unscrew the air cap nut. Remove air cap. Clean the air cap and nozzle with brush and solvent or water. 13. Prior to storing the mobile paint station, ensure it is completely dry. This will minimise residue build-up for the next use. Note: Ozito Industries will not be responsible for any damage or injuries caused by the repair of the tool by an unauthorised person or by mishandling of the tool. 12 MAINTENANCE If required the spray gun plunger can be removed and cleaned. This is a maintenance task and should not be required on a frequent basis. If the paint has been allowed to dry in the paint head or the spray gun has had a lot of use then removing and cleaning or replacing the plunger may restore the original spray gun performance. 1. If attached remove the air hose (10) from the spray gun. Using a 8mm socket (not provided) carefully unscrew and remove the spray gun plunger assemble from the rear of the spray gun (Fig. 15). Fig. 15 2. Clean the spray gun plunger assembly and spray gun, remove any paint using clear solvent or water. 3. After cleaning reassemble the plunger assembly in the correct order (Fig. 16) and refit to the rear of the spray gun. Fig. 16 Note: Do not use abrasive material to clean the plunger as this may affect the performance of the spray gun. 13 TROUBLE SHOOTING Problem Cause Remedy No coating material is coming out of the nozzle The nozzle is blocked Clean The suction tube is blocked Clean The small hole in the suction tube is blocked Clean Material spray regulator dial turned too far to the (-) Turn to the (+) The suction tube is loose Tighten pipe No pressure is built up in the paint pot Tighten paint pot The nozzle is loose Tighten The coating material drips from the nozzle Spray too coarse The spray jet pulses The nozzle is worn Change Build up of coating material in the air cap and nozzle Clean Coating material has a too high viscosity Dilute Too much material, spray regulator dial turned too far to (+) Turn spray regulator dial to (-) Nozzle dirty Clean Air filter very dirty Change Not enough pressure built up in paint pot Tighten paint pot Coating material in paint pot is running out Refill The small hole in the suction tube is blocked Clean Air filter very dirty Change Run in the coating material Too much coating material applied Turn the material spray regulator dial to the (-) Too much coating material mist (overspray) The distance to the object to be sprayed is too large Reduce spraying distance Too much coating material applied Turn material spray regulator dial to the (-) 14 SPARE PARTS Limited spare parts are available subject to availability.
