EarlexÂ® Expands HVLP Spray Technology Line to Maintenance Professionals
CHARLOTTE, N.C-- EarlexÂ®, Inc. of Charlotte, N.C. has expanded its line of HVLP (High Volume/Low Pressure) spraying systems to maintenance professionals with the introduction of the powerful 800 Watt, two stage-turbine EarlexÂ® Spray Station 5000.
The new EarlexÂ® Spray Station 5000 applies paint evenly for a professional finish, results in less overspray and paint waste and allows the user greater control and versatility in application. Lighter and less noisy than buzz guns, the Spray Station 5000 can result in significant savings in paint costs since less overspray requires less paint.
A world leader and pioneer in HVLP spraying technology, the EarlexÂ® Spray Station line is known as "the new way to spray" due to efficiency in application, greater control and price competitiveness with buzz guns.
Like all systems in the Spray Station line, the EarlexÂ® Spray Station 5000 achieves a perfect "piano" finish leaving no visible brush marks.
The new top of the line Spray Station 5000 can be used for spraying a wide variety of surfaces such as decking, sheds and siding and detail work such as fencing, iron gates and furniture. It can also be used for numerous woodworking applications.
"High Volume Low Pressure spraying is where the turbine motor feeds a high volume of air through a spray gun at very low pressure," noted Ian Mullaney, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Earlex. "This gives the user greater control of the spray and makes it much easier to achieve a higher quality finish with little experience or skill. Even a beginner can get a professional looking finish with no brush marks."
EarlexÂ® Spray Station 5000 Detailed
Designed and manufactured in the United Kingdom, the motor of the EarlexÂ® Spray Station 5000 supplies the gun with a constant airflow for applying paint, as well as other materials, such as lacquer, varnish, enamels, acrylics, cellulose and polyurethanes.
The easy-to-adjust gun nozzle allows use of three different spray patterns: round, horizontal and vertical. It sprays as fine as 1.0 inch that provides a high quality, professional finish.
Teflon-coated, the spray gun is made of hardwearing, non-corrosive material and is easy to clean and maintain. A neon on/off switch allows simple and safe control. Liquid capacity of the gun is a quart.
The Spray Station 5000 comes with a 9.5 ft. hose, a 5.6 ft. main cable and two masks. Storage for components is provided on the unit for convenience. A long carry handle makes it easy for the user to transport on the job site. The unit weighs 12.3 lbs. and comes with a two-year limited warranty.
"The Spray Station 5000, along with the other Earlex HVLP Spray Stations, is being accepted as 'the new way to spray' due to the benefits and narrowing price gap over buzz guns," said Mullaney. "HVLP Spray Stations offer a fast and simple alternative to currently available buzz guns and save money since paint transfer efficiencies are as high as 98 percent making your paint go further. In three to five years, we predict HVLP Spray Stations will replace buzz guns altogether as the consumer benefits are very appealing."
