HAZARD: INJECTION INJURY
A high pressure paint stream produced by
this equipment can pierce the skin and
underlying tissues, leading to serious injury
and possible amputation. SEE A PHYSICIAN
DO NOT TREAT AN INJECTION INJURY AS A SIMPLE CUT!
Injection can lead to amputation. See a physician
The maximum operating range of the gun is 2800
PSI/193BAR fluid pressure.
• NEVER aim the gun at any part of the body.
• NEVER allow any part of the body to touch the fluid stream.
DO NOT allow body to touch a leak in the fluid hose.
• NEVER put your hand in front of the gun. Gloves will not
provide protection against an injection injury.
• ALWAYS lock the gun trigger, shut the pump off, and
release all pressure before servicing, cleaning the tip or
guard, changing tip, or leaving unattended. Pressure will
not be released by turning off the motor. The
PRIME/SPRAY knob must be turned to PRIME to relieve
the pressure. Refer to the PRESSURE RELIEF
PROCEDURE (page 6) described in the pump manual.
• ALWAYS keep the tip guard in place while spraying. The
tip guard provides some protection but is mainly a warning
• ALWAYS remove the spray tip before flushing or cleaning
• Paint hose can develop leaks from wear, kinking and
abuse. A leak can inject material into the skin. Inspect
the hose before each use.
• NEVER use a spray gun without a working trigger lock
and trigger guard in place.
• All accessories must be rated at or above 2800 PSI/193
BAR. This includes spray tips, guns, extensions, and hose.
HAZARD: HAZARDOUS VAPORS
Paints, solvents, insecticides, and other
materials can be harmful if inhaled or come in
contact with the body. Vapors can cause
severe nausea, fainting, or poisoning.
• Use a respirator or mask if vapors can be
inhaled. Read all instructions supplied
with the mask to be sure it will provide the
• Wear protective eyewear.
• Wear protective clothing as required by
NOTE TO PHYSICIAN:
Injection into the skin is a traumatic injury. It is important
to treat the injury as soon as possible. DO NOT delay
treatment to research toxicity. Toxicity is a concern with
some coatings injected directly into the blood stream.
Consultation with a plastic surgeon or reconstructive
hand surgeon may be advisable.

HAZARD: EXPLOSION OR FIRE
Solvent and paint fumes can explode or ignite.
Property damage and/or severe injury can occur.
• Provide extensive exhaust and fresh air
introduction to keep the air within the spray area free from
accumulation of flammable vapors.
• Avoid all ignition sources such as static
electric sparks, open flames, pilot lights,
electrical appliances, and hot objects.
Connecting or disconnecting power cords
or working light switches can make sparks.
• Do not smoke in spray area.
• Fire extinguisher must be present and in good working
• Place paint pump at least 20 feet from the spray object in a
well ventilated area (add more hose if necessary).
Flammable vapors are often heavier than air. Floor area
must be extremely well ventilated. The paint pump contains
arcing parts that emit sparks and can ignite vapors.
• The equipment and objects in and around the spray area
must be properly grounded to prevent static sparks.
• Use only conductive or grounded high pressure fluid hose.
Gun must be grounded through hose connections.
• Power cord must be connected to a grounded circuit.
• Always flush unit into a separate metal container, at low
pump pressure, with spray tip removed. Hold gun firmly
against side of container to ground container and prevent
• Follow the material and solvent manufacturer's warnings
• Use extreme caution when using materials with a
flashpoint below 70° F (21° C). Flashpoint is the
temperature that a fluid can produce enough vapors to
• Plastic can cause static sparks. Never hang plastic to
enclose a spray area. Do not use plastic drop cloths
when spraying flammable materials.
• Use lowest possible pressure to flush equipment.
GAS ENGINE (WHERE APPLICABLE)
Always place pump outside of structure in fresh air. Keep all
solvents away from the engine exhaust. Never fill fuel tank with
a running or hot engine. Hot surface can ignite spilled fuel.
Always attach ground wire from pump unit to a grounded object,
such as a metal water pipe. Refer to enigine owner’s manual
for complete safety information.
HAZARD: EXPLOSION HAZARD DUE TO
Will cause property damage or severe injury.
• Do not use materials containing bleach or
• Do not use halogenated hydrocarbon solvents such as
bleach, mildewcide, methylene chloride and 1,1,1 -
trichloroethane. They are not compatible with aluminum.
• Contact your coating supplier about the compatibility of
material with aluminum.
