Maximum Working Pressure 2000 psi (137 bar, 13.7 MPa)

Use only water-based or oil-based (mineral spirit-type) materials with flash point greater than 100 F

(38 C). Do not use materials which state FLAMMABLE on the packaging. For more information about your material, request MSDS from distributor or retailer.

Use oil-based material outdoors or in a well-ventilated indoor area with a flow of fresh air.

Spraying certain materials may cause static build-up in the sprayer that can result in static shock to the user. If this occurs, first ensure the material has a flash point greater than 100 F (38 C) and does not state that it is FLAMMABLE anywhere on the package. If still feeling a static shock, the material likely contains a non-mineral spirits fluid such as, but not limited to, xylene, toluene, or naphtha, which can build up static. Switch to an alternative material.
