Airless sprayer

With the Control 150 M airless paint sprayer and the Control Pro series, it is possible to spray interior wall paints, wood and metal paints either undiluted or slightly diluted.

For detailed information, please refer to the paint manufacturer’s technical data sheet (available online).

Stir the material thoroughly and dilute it in the package according to the recommendation on the paint manufacturer’s technical data sheet. We recommend a mixer for stirring. You can use the following values as a guide:

  • Wood & Metal: undiluted
  • Solvent base or water-based wood preservatives, stains, oils, disinfection agents, plant protection products: undiluted
  • Solvent or water-based varnishes, primers, car top coats or thick paints: dilute by 5-10%

HVLP sprayer

Diluting may be necessary on smooth surfaces and for viscous, gel-like materials. Mixing with water is also recommended if the atomisation is too coarse or the volume of paint is too low (even on the maximum setting).

Detailed information on the individual materials and the maximum dilution can be found on the material manufacturer’s technical data sheet (available online).

First, try spraying without diluting the paint. If the atomisation is not fine enough or edges appear, dilute in 5-percent increments using the stirring rod.

Detailed information on specific materials and the maximum permissible dilution can be found on the material manufacturer’s technical data sheet. This is available online.

Steam wallpaper stripper

Depending on the amount of water in the container, it can take up to 12 minutes for the system to generate steam. A full container generates steam for around 85 minutes.

We recommend descaling our wallpaper steamers after every 6th use. How often you have to descale a device depends significantly on the water hardness. You can determine this using a water hardness test, which can be purchased in DIY stores or online.

Heat guns

The heat gun stores the temperature as long as the power supply is not interrupted.

You can switch the heat gun on and off as often as you like; it then saves the last temperature setting used. As soon as the power supply is interrupted, it jumps back to the standard setting of 300°C.

No. All of the devices in the FURNO series are excluded from commercial use.
