Graco TrueCoat 360 Features

VacuValve Technology

Vacuvalve technology allows you to turn the spray gun in any direction you want to while you are using it without fear of losing your prime. This means you can direct the paint where you need it to be directed contorting your body or moving the item to make it possible to paint.

You simply squeeze any excess air from the paint bag and you will have a closed vacuum system. You will not lose the ability to paint even if you hold the paint sprayer upside down or lay it over on either side.

32 Ounce Flex-Liner Paint Bag

The 32 ounce flex-liner paint bag is an exclusive feature that you will not find on paint sprayers made by any other manufacturer. The flex-liner paint bag is time saving and unique.

Once you have placed the proper amount of paint in the bag you can squeeze the bag and force any air out of the bag. This creates a vacuum that allows the paint sprayer to dispense all of the paint in the bag without spitting or sputtering, or losing prime, even if you turn the sprayer upside down.

The bag also makes cleaning up, and changing paint colors easy to do. These bags will save you so much clean up time that the cleaning of the tool will be accomplished in a matter of minutes.

The bag is held in place in a formed holder so you do not have to worry about bag ruptures or punctures.

Dual Speed Control

The dual speed control on this paint sprayer insures that you are painting at your own preferred speed. It has a low and high setting.

The low setting is used most often when you are spraying smaller items, or when you have to be closer to the surface you are painting.

The low setting reduces overspray when you are painting the smaller surfaces and it gives you more control over paint placement.

The high setting is best when you are paining a large area. The high speed lets you finish faster with less work and fewer coats of paint.

Stainless Steel Piston Pump

Stainless steel does not rust or corrode like most other metals. You can expose stainless steel to moisture for long periods of time with no worries.

Stainless steel is strong and durable. Having a stainless steel piston pump allows you to have a tool that will provide you with excellent service for many years. The stainless steel allows the pump to be heavily worked for long periods of time without the pump components being warped or disfiguring from the pressure.

The stainless steel piston pump allows an increased amount of pressure to be delivered so that even the thickest paint substances can be effectively atomized into the perfect paint particles.

This pump lets you paint using thicker materials. This pump allows you to have the perfect finish even when you are using thicker materials. This pump allows you to use the sprayer loner and receive better service from the tool

Suggested Uses

This paint sprayer can be used with a wide variety of paint substances. You can paint metals, wood, and most other surfaces because the sprayer can dispense thin painting fluids, thick painting fluids, or almost all paint substances.

FAQ’S

Can I plug this sprayer up using an extension cord?

You can use an extension cord with this equipment but you must use a cord that is a 3-wire cord. The 3-wire extension cords have a grounding plug and receptacle that will accept the plug that is on the end of the equipment. Do not plug this into a cord that does not accept all three prongs of the plug on the product.

You must use the proper size extension cord. If the cord is too small then you will not be providing the proper voltage to your equipment. This can cause you to have an insufficient amount of power and either your tool will not operate or it will overheat.

Use an extension cord that is 50 foot long and made of 18 gauge wire. You can also use a 100 foot cord that is made of 16 gauge wire. You can also use a 200 foot cord that is made from 14 gauge wire.
