COLOUR SPRAYS LTD.
Albion Works, North Road, London N7.
SEVERAL spray guns, suction-operated or
pressure fed, are available from this company. LC is a new large-capacity spray gun with a multi-port head. RS is an extremely lightweight yet sturdy gun for spray finishing small areas or products. This model can be used with pressure feed system, suction cup, or overhead gravity container.
I-IB is a fast, economical spray gun designed for general industrial production work. The spray pattern can be instantly adjusted from a wide fan to a cone formation.
HSE is designed solely for the application of underbody coating, textural plasters, plastics paint, vermiculite, cement, bitumen, cork mixtures and so on. The angle of the fluid port ensures a free flow of material to the fluid nozzle and avoids "building up". The spray head is quickly detachable on a cone seating which is convenient for changing to different nozzle sizes when required. Standard nozzle set-ups are in., a in., in. and + in. for very thick materials.
A lightweight suction cup assembly Type CT is suitable for HB, LC and RS. A quick-release action holds the cover in place and a positive lid seal prevents material leakage. The container is constructed in strong gauge aluminium alloy and is easy to clean. Sizes are quart, pint and half-pint.

CGA is for light-duty work where about 2 c.f.m. of compressed air is available. It can be instantly converted for suction or pressure feed by valve adjustment. A bleeder and non-bleeder type is available.
The compact new TGA featherweight is designed for all medium-sized refinishing jobs. Its spray pattern is adjustable from round to fan and the gun can be operated by suction or pressure feed.

KISMET LTD. Fenlake Works,
DESIGNED to combat the continual rise in
finishing costs, the Kismatic Junior has been specially introduced to meet the needs of plant maintenance engineers and similar users.
Kismatic painting is not conventional spraying; it is an airless method relying purely on hydraulic pressure for atomization. Break-up of the paint is achieved by pressures of 1,000 to 2,500 p.s.i. forcing paint through a small orifice in the tungsten carbide spray tip. There is no partial drying as with compressed-air spraying.
Power behind the unit is a 25:1 ratio bump which requires a free air delivery of 4/5 c.f.m.

PTFE packing is used throughout. Self-aligning nylon needles reduce nozzle wear and gland friction. The guns have forged high strength aluminium alloy bodies and triggers, and oversize nylon air valves and stainless steel stems.
Gravity paint cups are available for the 630 in half-pint and pint sizes. The 230 can be employed with a pint or quart suction "feed cup or for bulk supply from a Volspray pressure-feed paint container.
