WARNING
WARNING
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 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.

Choosing the Correct Tip
Choosing the Correct Tip
Understanding Tip Number
Selecting Tip Hole Size
The last three digits of tip number (i.e.: XXX413) contains information about hole size and fan width on surface when gun is held 12 in. (30.5 cm) from surface
being sprayed.
•
Tips come in a variety of hole sizes for spraying a
range of fluids. The sprayer includes a 0.015 in.
(0.38 mm) tip for use in most spraying applications.
Use the table below to determine the range of recommended tip hole sizes for each fluid type.
•
Consider coating and surface to be sprayed. Make
sure to use the best tip hole size for the coating and
best fan width for that surface.
•
Tip hole size controls flow rate - the amount of paint
that comes out of the gun.
First digit when doubled = approximate fan width
413 tip has
8 - 10 in.

hole size
HINTS:
ti19498a
•
As you spray, the tip wears and enlarges. Starting
with a tip hole size smaller than the maximum will
allow you to spray within the rated flow capacity of
the sprayer.
•
Tips wear with use and abrasive paint and need
periodic replacement.
•
Do not spray with worn spray tips. Poor spray
pattern quality will result.
Last two digits = tip hole size in thousands of an inch
Example: For a 6 - 8 in. (152 - 203 mm) fan width and a
0.015 in (0.38 mm) hole size, order part number
PST315 or NAR315, depending on your sprayer model
number.

Spray Pattern Quality
A good spray pattern is evenly distributed as it hits the surface. Adjust pressure control knob so pressure is just high
enough to spray without “tails”. If tails persist at highest
pressure setting, a smaller tip is needed to spray the material or material may need to be thinned.
ti19466a
BAD PATTERN
ti14994a
ti16700a
5.
ti16701a
ti18874ati14995a
Do not operate or spray near children. Do not aim the
sprayer at, or spray any person or animal. Keep hands
and other body parts away from discharge. For
example, do not try to stop leaks with any part of the
body.
2.
ti16700a
Reverse spray tip to UNCLOG position. Turn pressure
control knob to maximum pressure setting.
If spray tip is still clogged, you may have to repeat
steps 1 - 5 and rotate the spray tip from SPRAY to
UNCLOG several times. Repeat step 1 to release pressure, remove and clean spray tip filter, or replace with
new spray tip/guard assembly.
ti14989a
NOTE: Spray tip filter assembly is reverse-threaded:
Turn left (or counter-clockwise) to install.
Turn right (or clockwise) to remove.
To unclog spray tip clog, engage trigger lock and put
prime/spray valve UP to release pressure.

Disengage trigger lock, put prime/spray valve DOWN
to spray position, and resume spraying.

Shutdown and Cleaning
Shutdown and Cleaning
NOTICE
Failure to properly clean sprayer after each use will result
in hardened materials, damage to the sprayer, and the
warranty will no longer be valid. Do not store solvents
other than mineral spirits in sprayer. Always flush with
Graco Pump Armor prior to storage.
2.
Remove material cup and return excess material to
proper container. If used, properly dispose the material
cup liner.
3.
Remove flexible suction tube as shown below.
Flushing Sprayer
ti19033a
Use only water-based or 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.
NOTICE
When removing flexible suction tube from sprayer, make
sure to pull directly on top fitting of flexible suction tube.
Flexible suction tube will become damaged if pulled from
bottom or on flexible portion.
4.
Use screwdriver to pry suction tube strainer from flexible suction tube.
ti18952a
5.
Use oil-based material outdoors or in a well-ventilated
indoor area with a flow of fresh air.
Clean flexible suction tube and suction tube strainer
with water (or flushing fluid) and a brush every time
you flush the sprayer. Reconnect flexible suction tube
and suction tube strainer and orient as shown.
Keep spray area well-ventilated. Keep a good supply of
fresh air moving through the area.
ti18859a
NOTICE
Protect the internal parts of this sprayer from water.
Do not submerge the sprayer in cleaning fluid. Openings
