Before using your sprayer read this Owners Manual for complete instructions on proper use and safety warnings.
Congratulations! You have purchased a high-quality paint sprayer made by Graco Inc. This sprayer is designed to provide superior spray performance with water-based and oil-based (mineral spirit-type) architectural paints and coatings. This user information is intended to help you understand the types of materials that can be used with your sprayer.
Please read the information on the material container label to determine if it can be used with your sprayer. Ask for a Safety Data Sheet (SDS) from your supplier. The container label and SDS will explain the contents of the material and the specific precautions related to it.
Paints, coatings and clean-up materials generally fit into one of the following 3 basic categories:
WATER-BASED: The container label should indicate that the material can be cleaned up with soap and water. Your sprayer is compatible with this type of material. Your sprayer is NOT compatible with harsh cleaners such as chlorine bleach.
OIL-BASED: The container label should indicate that the material is COMBUSTIBLE and can be cleaned up with mineral spirits or non-flammable paint thinner. The SDS must indicate that the flash point of the material is above 100°F (38°C). Your sprayer is compatible with this type of material. Use oil-based material outdoors or in a well-ventilated indoor area with a flow of fresh air. See the safety warnings in this manual.
FLAMMABLE: This type of material contains flammable solvents such as xylene, toluene, naphtha, MEK, lacquer thinner, acetone, denatured alcohol, and turpentine. The container label should indicate that this material is FLAMMABLE. This type of material is NOT compatible with your sprayer and CANNOT be used.
