Compact airless system with less overspray
A typical high-pressure airless spray system is an application method still considered only for use by professional painters and decorators. In the past, the everyday DIY home renovator may not have used these devices because of the high pressure. But this has all changed!
New user-friendly, High Efficiency Airless (HEA) technology by Wagner, ensures that the spray gun is now much more controllable, with overspray reduced by up to 55 per cent. Surface finishing expert, Wagner, now offers DIY sprayers that are equipped with this new HEA technology, known as the Control Pro range.
Paint like a pro
With HEA, even first-timers can produce beautifully painted surfaces, just like a professional. With an innovative new spray tip design and a very efficient pump, the ground-breaking technology enables the user to spray with significantly reduced pressure and maximum control – resulting in a softer spray pattern and up to 55 per cent less over-spray when compared to conventional airless technology.
This new technology is available in two sprayers, Control Pro 350 Extra Skid and Control Pro 350 Extra Cart, offering many benefits especially when spraying indoors. Less overspray results in efficient use of paint as less paint is wasted when spraying.
Due to the lower pressure, between 700 and 1500 PSI, the paint exits the gun with less speed. Users gain more control over how they handle the gun and make fewer mistakes when applying. Further advantages include lower recoil of the gun when pulling the trigger, and users need less force on the trigger, so it is perfect for beginners. The ergonomics of the spray gun have been improved and all this contributes to a fatigue-proof application.
HEA – how it works
Two components are at the core of the new low-pressure technology. Just in front of the spray diffuser tip (finish tip), Wagner has mounted the pre-tip, to diffuse the paint in the same quantity and with the same speed as conventional airless devices.
A softer spray jet, better opacity when layers are overlapping and less harsh edges are the result of this special tip technology. There is no need for additional finishing and the surface quality is perfect.
The second component is the pump technology. Compared to conventional airless technology, pressure is significantly reduced. However, the amount of paint passing through the tip remains the same.
Suitable for numerous applications
Control Pro is the ideal tool for beginners, serious DIYers or semi-professionals. The compact Control Pro airless sprayers are suitable for many different project sizes and applications, both interior and exterior. For more flexibility, the CP350 Extra models include a longer hose length, pressure gauge and extension pole.
Control Pro HEA tips come in various sizes to suit many applications. The sprayers can be used with all types of coatings including water and oil based paints, varnishes and stains. Due to the lower pressure, the tip is less strained and therefore lasts longer.
