Ultimate HVLP SprayStation – HV3901

Ultimate HVLP SprayStation - HV3901

HVLP spray painting for larger projects around the home and garden

The Ultimate SprayStation® has been designed with comfort in mind. Like the HV5900, this paint spraying system comes with a unique spray pack in a neat sleek design. It can take up to 5 litres of water based paints and has adjustable straps with a 4 metre hose providing ease of movement for all projects in and around the home. The paint sprayer works for fine and detailed projects, but it really comes into its own when tackling larger painting tasks like fences, decking and walls. You can paint continuously for a much longer period of time, without the additional hassle of messy paint trays. The round lid on the front of the spray pack is fast to unscrew for a quick re-fill, taking the stress out of big jobs.

The Ultimate SprayStation® comes with a modern spray gun designed to suit all skill levels, from the first time user to the DIY painting enthusiast. Designed with simplicity in mind, the spray pattern lever at the front of the gun allows you to vary the spray pattern progressively between horizontal, vertical and round. This simple adjustment allows you to change the paint pattern to suit your specific project; round is ideal for fine and detailed jobs on furniture or radiators, whereas the horizontal or vertical options are great for larger areas such as painting walls and fences.

On the back of the spray gun there is a quick to touch paint flow dial so you can be in constant control and alter how fast you are spraying as you go, with minimal overspray. It is a cost efficient way to decorate, using far less material consumption than a brush or a roller.

The Ultimate SprayStation® allows you to change the needle from the front in a quick and efficient way.

This gun can spray all manner or paints and liquids and the 550 watt motor allows for fast and easy completion with smooth professional results. If you want repeatable performance the SprayStation® Ultimate is the perfect homeowner solution.

Q. The spray is very blotchy/splatters. What can I do?
A. The paint requires thinning further (100 – 200ml of the appropriate thinner).

Q. What might be wrong if Intermittent spraying occurs?
A. The Pick-up Tube is loose. Push in.
A. The Paint Container is not tight enough. Hold the Paint Container and turn the Spray Gun.
A. The paint requires more thinning/mixing.

Q. It has stopped spraying during use. What might be wrong?
A. The Fluid Tip may be blocked with paint. Also, check the air feed hole underneath the Fluid Tip.

Q. I am getting an ‘orange peel’ effect. What can I do?
A. The paint is being applied too thick. Turn the volume down, spray lighter coats, and use a smaller Fluid Tip and Needle.
A. The paint is drying before it hits the surface. Hold the Spray Gun closer to the item being sprayed.
A. Spray Gun is not being held perpendicular to surface. Keep wrist and arm straight and move whole body. Keep Spray Gun an even distance from surface.

Q. Can I get different sized Fluid Tips?
A. Yes you can get 1.0mm, 1.5mm and 2.5mm for the HV5000 and HV7000 and 1.5mm, 2.5mm for the HV1900, HV3901.

Q. Will the SprayStation spray exterior emulsion/masonry paint?
A. Yes, but with sufficient dilution and a 2.5mm Fluid Tip. This is better for walls and smaller areas rather than a whole house exterior because you will need to apply approximately 3 coats.

Q. Do I need to mask anything?
A. Although there is minimum overspray with HVLP technology you will always get a spray mist in the atmosphere, so it is advisable to mask over appliance sockets, light fittings etc. Also, cover any furniture in the area you are spraying with appropriate sheeting.

Q. Can I use paint in the 4l Spray Pack?
A. No, only fence treatment or very thin liquids.

Q. Will the Spray Gun I use spray different types of paint?
A. Yes, but for different thicknesses different size Fluid Tips are available to achieve an improved finish. For example, 1.5mm for gloss paint.

Q. Does the viscosity guide cover all types of sprayers?
A. No, it is only for Earlex SprayStations.

Q. I have thinned the paint to the correct viscosity but it splatters everywhere, what can I do?
A. You will need to thin it further. The viscosity test is a general guide to get the paint flowing. The timings can vary amongst various paint manufacturers. Try adding 100 – 200ml of the appropriate thinner then stir. Next, lift out your stirrer and the paint should be running off it rapidly. When it starts dripping the drops should be perfectly round like rain drops and not clingy or lumpy.

Q. What do I thin the paint with?
A. Water if water based. White spirit if solvent based. Cellulose if cellulose based.

Q. Can I spray Hammerite?
A. It is possible to spray but you will need to thin it nearly 50:50 with Hammerite thinners.

Q. The paint I want to spray says ‘for brush or roller use only’. Can I spray this?
A. This is usually because the paint manufacturer does not test it fo spraying, However, most will spray with dilution. Always check with the manufacturer or our service department first.

Q. Can I use my SprayStation for artificial suntan solution?
A. No, the unit is not certified for this use or any other use not specified in the instructions. It will also invalidate the manufacturer’s guarantee.
