    Preval Sprayer

    The Preval Sprayer is an aerosol-based spray system that allows the user to mix up any paint, chemical or solution and turn it in to sprayable material through Preval’s patented Venturri Vacuum Process. This process draws the medium from the attached reservoir and delivers a professional-grade finish on virtually any surface without mixing the propellant and medium together. This results in an unadulterated finish with no color change.

     

    FAQS

    Is the Preval Sprayer better than a standard aerosol paint can?

    Yes! The Preval Sprayer is superior to a standard aerosol paint can for many reasons.

    First, you can fill the Sprayer with the exact amount of paint you wish to use, minimizing waste. Second, you can add in hardeners, accelerators, catalysts to inexpensively create 2-component spray paints . Finally, standard aerosol cans allow paint to sit for long periods of time, becoming adulterated by mixing with the solvents and propellents. In the Preval Sprayer, paint and the propellant never mix in their liquid state.

    The Sprayer holds less than 2oz. of propellant and sprays up to 16oz of paint or liquid OR 18 minutes continuously. For paint coverage see second page of Owners Manual –

    Is the Preval Sprayer affordable compared to regular aerosol cans?

    There is no comparison, when you factor in the Sprayer’s versatility. The cost of a Preval Sprayer is about the same cost as most aerosol paint cans–less than $10. But with the Sprayer, any paint can be aerosolized. One Sprayer can be used multiple times to spray numerous different paints. In addition, the Sprayer can accommodate 18 oz. of paint compared to aerosol paint cans, which normally contain 4 oz. of solvent, 4 oz. of propellant and 4 oz. of paint.

    How do I re-sell Preval Sprayers?

    If you are a marketer, distributor or retailer and would like to speak with us about re-selling any Preval product, please email us sales@preval.com or call 815-634-5890.

    Where can I buy a Preval Sprayer?

    Preval products are sold at a most major retailers as well as many smaller outlets. They are usually available through retailers’ web sites as well. In stores, they are generally displayed in the paint spray section at major retailers, near other name-brand products such as Rustoleum.

    Is the Preval Sprayer recyclable?

    Yes. Both the aluminum aerosol power unit and the glass jar can be recycled. Deplete the power unit and then dispose of it.

    How do I clean my Preval Sprayer?

    To clean your Preval Sprayer, simply spray paint thinner alone for 10 seconds. Paint thinner is the product used to condition the paint to allow for better spray flow. Thinners include water, acetone, mineral spirits and/or lacquer thinner. Whatever thinner you are using for your solution, you can also use for cleaning. Use the proper cleaning agent as specified by the manufacturer for the paint liquid you are using.

    If you do not properly clean your Preval Sprayer you will have trouble using it in the future as any contamination will reduce the Preval Sprayer’s output or even clog it completely. If the Sprayer is clogged, put your finger on the red insert inside of the button nozzle and cover it.  While covering, press down on the button to force air to flow in reverse. The should clear clogs.If that doesn’t work. remove the product container by twisting it off the Sprayer, hold the Sprayer upside down and try to spray propellant.

    Cleanliness is even more important on the inside of the button. If this occurs, please take off the button and soak it in thinner and use a Q-tip to clean around the insides.

    REVIEWS

    I've used them on automotive spot touch up type work with good success. If you're working on an area that's a square foot or so, or square inches... (or buy a lot of them), it works well. Like anything, if you need large coverage, you need real spray equipment. I keep one on the shelf for touch-up stuff, so I guess you'd say I've found them pretty useful. Also, as mentioned before, some of these modern paints are terribly toxic. It's not just what you breath, but keeping it off your skin as well. In addition to the right respirator, Tyvec hooded suites and good gloves are cheap compared to the alternative.


    I know the subject of painting has been beaten to death here on the forums, but I was wondering if anybody here used a "Preval" bottle to paint a frame. I didn't find anything in search. For those who are unfamiliar with these things, a "Preval" (that's the brand name) bottle is simply a small glass jar with an aerosol "power unit" screwed to the top. The package they come in shows a bicycle (an old Cannondale mtn bike) that was painted red but I don't know if that was the whole frame or just parts and/or touch-up. You can apparently spray any kind of paint you want instead of doing "can jobs". I work on military vehicles for a defense contractor and I use these everyday at work and they're great for touch up and stenciling. However the mil spec paint I use is flat and I haven't used these bottles for anything else. I asked my team leader if you can buy these retail and he said you can get them at Home Depot. You can also buy the power units separately when they get "spent" and keep using the same jar. Anyway sorry for the long post but I'm wanting to use these on an old Schwinn tandem frame and wanted to see if it would achieve good results and how many power units I have to go through.


    I'm really pleased with the way it came out with the preval spray.


    This worked fantastic on my car spoiler. Put 4 coats of gloss clear coat I bought from Advance Auto store, and it looks like brand new.


    THERE IS NOTHING LIKE IT IN THE MARKET PLACE. I love using Preval sprayers when I can't find the color in an aerosol.


    I was looking for something easy to use. Previous paint sprayers clogged and just stopped working. Probably beacause latex paint is impossible to thin. Using an oil based paint, randomly thinned with turpentine, it worked like a charm. The finish was exactly what I was looking to achieve. The directions are pretty simple.


    This product works great for what it is. I had a tiny 1 foot square dent that I fixed on my jeep and did not want to set up a spray booth and get the big gun out and make a mess everywhere.


    The price of this unit, you sure get a lot for your money. Nice to have all the bottles, glass and plastic, and different size plastic ones. I like all the extra tubes and caps. Assembly is very easy. Be sure to follow the dilution instructions. Very easy to use, just have to get the distance between the object and the sprayer correct. Cleanup is easier than cleaning a brush and less time.
