    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.

    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.

Use the proper cleaning agent as specified by the manufacturer for the paint liquid you are using.

    REVIEWS

    As an illustrator I've used many air brushes. Setting up the compressor, the moisture trap for the compressor and working with the noise of the compressor motor isn't always fun or relaxing. This little air brush kit uses compressed air from a can so you can work in a whisper quiet environment. Set up and clean up is super easy. The effects are great! Depending on the needle and tip you use you can get really detailed accuracy. Very little overspray and no sputter or moisture issues from a mechanical compressor. It's ideal for small scale applications. What's the coolest is the whole assembly is portable. It's not easy to move a compressor that needs power. But because it's an aerosol can you can take this outside to do murals, vehicles, planters... there's no limit to your imagination. Love this air brush!!


    I tried it on my garage doors with an excellent results. It is very easy to use and clean and most importantly no efforts at all.


    You never realize how much you need something like this, until you start looking. Take a look around your home and look at all the chips, scratches, worn paint, etc. Look at all the paint flaws. Now, you can make your house as close to perfect, without the hassle of toting a compressor around. The airbrush kit works great! I simply used a piece of cardboard to block areas where I didn't want the spray to hit. I filled the unit with paint, hooked up the pressurized air can and off to work I went. I did have to fill in the damaged areas, which I did with 5 minute mud. I did a light sand and tried to keep the texture in the non damaged areas (by wiping the excess mud off with a damp sponge). I first hit the area with Kilz to prime the surface. Then I hit it with paint - super easy to do and it looks great. I went though each room, cleaning up paint errors from the past and fixing damaged spots. So much better than a paint brush, keeps the texture, no streaks, blends well and easy to use. I'm also impressed how long the cans of air last. I highly recommend this airbrush kit!
