How To Use The Cuprinol Sprayer
Place the sprayer on a firm, flat surface.
Pressurise the sprayer by pumping the handle up and down fully with two hands.
Make sure that fingers cannot be trapped between the handle and the top of the tank.
Pump approx. 15-20 times if vessel is filled to the 4L mark, and 25-30 times if half-filled to 2L for perfect spray pressure.
You will know once you have reached the optimum pressure for spraying, the valve (269) will release some air and the black valve handle will rise to reveal about 5 mm of the red indicator below.
Spraying & Brushing
For best results spray main area evenly from a distance of approx. 20-30cm for ideal coverage.
Using a slow, sweeping motion, spray horizontally.
Use the brush to brush into edges and go over the panels for the perfect finish.
As with any sprayer it may take a couple of minutes to perfect your technique.
Begin slowly and increase the pace as you get used to spraying.
Take care not to spray too quickly as this may result in an uneven finish.
Similarly, spraying too slowly will result in excess product being applied causing runs.
Should this happen simply brush into the wood.
The Cuprinol Spray & Brush has a very controlled spray pattern, however, as with any spray product a limited amount of overspray will be created.
This can be minimised by avoiding spraying in windy conditions and by using cardboard or plastic as a shield.
Any overspray should be cleaned up with water and household detergent if necessary.
Excessive spillage on plants should be rinsed off before drying.
Re-pressurise to maximum pressure when the spray pattern “tails off” following step 4.
The frequency of repressurisation will depend on the amount of liquid in the container.
In the unlikely event that the nozzle (665 and 666) becomes partially blocked, release the pressure and unscrew the nozzle.
Remove both nozzle components (665 and 666) and filter (664) and wash with water until all traces of fluid are removed.
Check to see if the nozzle holes are clear and reassemble.
