Fire, Explosion, and Electric Shock Hazard

Improper grounding, poor air ventilation, open flames, or sparks can cause a hazardous condition and result in a fire, explosion, or electric shock.

• Electrostatic equipment must be used only by trained, qualified personnel who understand the requirements in this manual.

• Ground the equipment, all personnel in or close to the spray area, the object being sprayed,

and all conductive objects in the spray area. See Grounding, page 15.

• Provide fresh air ventilation to avoid buildup of flammable or toxic vapors when spraying, flushing, or cleaning the gun. Interlock the gun air supply to prevent operation unless ventilating

fans are on. See Ventilate the Spray Booth on page 9.

• Do not flush with the gun electrostatics on. Do not turn on the gun electrostatics until all solvent is removed from the system.

• If there is any static sparking while using the equipment, stop spraying immediately. Identify and correct the problem.

• Eliminate all ignition sources such as pilot lights, cigarettes, and static arcs from plastic drop cloths. Do not plug in or unplug power cords or turn lights on or off in the spray area.

Check gun resistance daily. See Test Gun Resistance on page 29.

• Use cleaning solvents with the highest possible flash point, preferably above ambient temperature.

• Keep the spray area free of debris and rags. Do not store solvent and flammable fluids in the spray area.

• Use only non-sparking tools to clean residue from the booth and hangers.




Skin Injection Hazard

Spray from the gun, hose leaks, or ruptured components can inject fluid into your body and cause an extremely serious injury, including the need for amputation. Splashing fluid in the eyes or on the skin can also cause serious injury.

• Fluid injected into the skin might look like just a cut, but is a serious injury. Get immediate surgical treatment.

• Do not point the gun at anyone or at any part of the body. Do not put your hand or fingers over the spray tip. Do not stop or deflect fluid leaks with your hand, body, glove, or rag.

• Never spray without the tip guard in place.

Follow the steps under Prepare the Gun for Service, page 35, when you stop spraying and

before cleaning, checking, or repairing equipment.

• Check the hoses and couplings daily. Replace worn, damaged, or loose parts immediately.

Permanently coupled hoses cannot be repaired; replace the entire hose.

• Tighten all fluid connections before each use.

Toxic Fluid Hazard

Hazardous fluids or toxic fumes can cause a serious injury or death if splashed in the eyes or on the skin, swallowed, or inhaled.

• Know the specific hazards of the fluid you are using. Read the fluid manufacturer’s warnings.

• Store hazardous fluid in an approved container. Dispose of the hazardous fluid according to all local, state, and national guidelines.

• Wear appropriate protective clothing, gloves, eyewear, and respirator.
