    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.

    TAKE THE PAIN OUT OF SPRAYING

    Aerosol users may experience pain to parts of the actuating finger(s) which can lead to numbness, tingling, weakness, or muscle damage in the hand and fingers, similar to carpal tunnel syndrome, a condition in which there is long term pressure on the users median nerve. The vGrip's ergonomic trigger evenly distributes trigger pressure across your hand, further minimizing the chance for pain, slippage and accidents.

    SAFE & EASY TO USE

    The handle allows users to keep fingers away from caustic chemicals, solvent and oil based paints, dangerous fixatives and more. The vGrip also limits the potential for severe frostbite depending upon propellant composition.

    Common Aerosols used in conjunction with vGrip Include:

    Preval Sprayers, Insecticides, Lubricants Sprays, Brake Cleaners, Industrial Chemicals, Plastidip Sprays, Spray Paints, Primer Sprays, Protective Coatings, Fixatives Sprays, Carb and Choke Cleaners, Hobby and Craft Sprays, Glass Cleaners, Wax and polish sprays, Whitewall Cleaners, 2k Aerosols, Upholstery Cleaners, Tire Cleaners, Degreasers, Dusting Aids, Cutting Oils, Air Fresheners, Marking Paints, Varnish, Shellac, Stain, Anti-seize Lubricants, Electronic Cleaners, Glitter Sprays, Battery Terminal Coatings, Dry Moly Lube, Dry Graphite Sprays, Foamers, and so much more the list could go on and on.

    Market research indicates:

    Professional users and consumers prefer vGrip. Focus groups have tested the efficacy of other aerosol handle alternatives in the market. In many cases, while working with competing handles, users are forced to "bridge the space" of the open space between the aerosol's button and of the competing product's trigger mechanism. In these case(s), the only solution for the user was "balling up painters tape, in order to actuate the aerosol button".
