Instructions for spraying walls
Do you want to paint the walls in your home really easily and at the same time create special colour effects? You can find out here just how to get incredible results in just a few steps.
Step 1 of 7: Preparing the work surface
At the preparation stage, doors, windows, power sockets and skirting boards should be carefully masked off. Cover the floor with film, cardboard or dust sheets and mask the edges of the neighbouring walls with paper approximately 30 cm wide. To ensure a clean edge, the masking tape should be firmly pressed into place.
Step 2 of 7: Preparing the paint
Stir the paint well and then secure the base unit with the height-adjustable paint bucket fastening to the container and dip the suction tube into the paint. The W 990 FLEXiO spraying system is especially suitable for large wall and ceiling areas since it takes the paint directly out of the original container.
Step 3 of 7: Preparing the sprayer
Do a spray test on a piece of cardboard to set the quantity of air and paint to your personal working speed. This means you can set it up to have minimum overspray. You can also familiarise yourself with the sprayer using the test poster.
Step 4 of 7: Spraying the right way
Spray slightly overlapping stripes at an consistent distance of 15-20 centimeters while holding the gun parallel to the wall will produce an even finish.
Step 5 of 7: Sequence
Always work away from the light. Start with the ceiling. Then move on to the window ledges. Then do the edges and finally the main surface.
Step 6 of 7: Spraying corners
Corners and edges can easily be sprayed as you work: if you are only painting one wall, a piece of cardboard in the corner can produce a neat edge. This gets rid of the need for tedious cutting-in with a paint brush or masking.
Step 7 of 7: Cleaning the unit
After spraying, clean the spraying system: flush the tube and pump unit using the self-cleaning function by allowing warm water to circulate through them; then clean the paint-carrying parts of the spray gun, such as the nozzle, with warm water.
