IMPORTANT: These Sprayguns are suitable for use with both water-based and solvent-based
coating materials. They are not designed for use with highly corrosive and/or abrasive materials
and if used with such materials it must be expected that the need for cleaning and/or replacement
of parts will be increased.
If there is any doubt regarding the suitability of a specific material, contact your DeVilbiss
Distributor or Finishing Brands UK direct.
NOTE: This gun is not to be used with halogenated hydrocarbon solvents or cleaning agents such
as 1,1,1,-Trichloroethane or methylene chloride. These solvents can react with the aluminium
components used in this gun. The reaction can become violent and lead to an equipment
explosion.

SAFETY WARNINGS
Fire and explosion
Solvents and coating materials can be highly flammable or combustible when sprayed.
ALWAYS refer to the coating material supplier’s instructions and COSHH sheets
before using this equipment.
Users must comply with all local and national codes of practice and insurance company
requirements governing ventilation, fire precautions, operation and house-keeping of working
areas.
This equipment, as supplied, is NOT suitable for use with Halogenated Hydrocarbons.
Static electricity can be generated by fluid and/or air passing through hoses, by the spraying
process and by cleaning non- conductive parts with cloths. To prevent ignition sources from
static discharges, earth continuity must be maintained to the spray gun and other metallic
equipment used. It is essential to use conductive air and/or fluid hoses.
Personal Protective Equipment
Toxic vapours – When sprayed, certain materials may be poisonous, create irritation or are
otherwise harmful to health. Always read all labels, safety data sheets and follow any
recommendations for the material before spraying. If in doubt, contact your material
supplier.
The use of respiratory protective equipment is recommended at all times. The type of
equipment must be compatible with the material being sprayed.
Always wear eye protection when spraying or cleaning the spray gun.
Gloves must be worn when spraying or cleaning the equipment.
Injection Hazard – Spray from the gun, hose leaks or ruptured components can inject fluid
through skin into the body and cause extremely serious injury including poisoning. GET
IMMEDIATE MEDICAL ATTENTION. INFORM THE DOCTOR WHAT TYPE OF MATERIAL
WAS INJECTED.
Do not put fingers or hand over the spray tip.
Replace all worn, damaged or loose parts immediately.
Training – Personnel should be given adequate training in the safe use of spraying
equipment.
Misuse
Never aim a spray gun at any part of the body.
Never exceed the max. Recommended safe working pressure for the equipment.
The fitting of non-recommended or non-original spares may create hazards.
Before cleaning or maintenance, all pressure must be isolated and relieved from the
equipment.
The product should be cleaned using a gun-washing machine. However, this equipment
should not be left inside gun-washing machines for prolonged periods of time.
Noise Levels
The A-weighted sound level of spray guns may exceed 85 dB (A) depending on the set-up
being used. Details of actual noise levels are available on request. It is recommended that
ear protection is worn at all times when spraying.

Dimensions

Important: The spray gun must be earthed to dissipate any electrostatic
charges which may be created by fluid or air flows. This can be achieved
through the spray gun mounting, or conductive air/fluid hoses. Electrical
bond from the spray gun to earth should be checked with an Ohm meter.
A resistance of less than 106 Ohms is recommended

Clean with non-metallic point.
Dirt on left or right side of fluid nozzle.
Clean.
Heavy right or left
side pattern.
Remedies for the top-heavy and bottom-heavy patterns:
1. Determine if the obstruction is on the air cap or the fluid nozzle. Do this by making a test spray pattern. Then, rotate
the cap one-half turn and spray another pattern. If the defect is inverted, obstruction is on the air cap. Clean the air
cap as previously instructed. Also check for dried paint just inside the cap centre hole opening; remove by washing
with solvent.
2. If the defect is not inverted, it is on the fluid nozzle. Clean nozzle. If problem persists, renew nozzle.
