Graco Launches TrueCoat Pro II Handheld Paint Sprayers

New cordless and electric airless sprayers make small jobs fast and easy

MINNEAPOLIS (Sept. 10, 2012) – Graco Inc. (NYSE: GGG) today announced the launch of the TrueCoat Pro II handheld sprayers, available in cordless and electric models. The new, next generation Graco TrueCoat Pro II professional handheld paint sprayers include features that make spraying small interior, exterior and specialty jobs faster and easier. The TrueCoat Pro II handheld sprayers save time and materials, while delivering maximum performance, reliability and professional quality finish and results in the palm of the hand. 

“The TrueCoat Pro II sprayers really deliver a faster, easier way to spray small jobs with the quality and performance of a full-size airless paint sprayer,” said Kate Grathwohl, Graco Contractor Equipment Division (CED) Worldwide Product Marketing Manager. “The feedback we are getting from the pros is that the TrueCoat Pro II handhelds deliver quality results and performance and reduce the time for small jobs to only minutes from set-up through clean-up. They also appreciate the savings in materials and less hassle.”

The new TrueCoat Pro II sprayers feature the ProControl™ Pressure Control System (variable pressure: 1000 – 2000 psi) that allows users to adjust the pressure to spray thin and thick materials and cover a wider variety of applications. This feature enables more control and reduced overspray at lower fluid pressure while enabling a higher production rate with thicker materials. The TrueCoat II sprayers also feature the new Tilt- n-Spray Pendulum Suction Tube for a full range of motion while spraying up, down and sideways, just like a professional Contractor™ gun, while evacuating all of the material from the cup for fewer refills and more productive spray time. The new TrueCoat II sprayers are ideal for walls, ceilings, trim, doors, siding, garage doors, fences, shutters and decks.

The new TrueCoat II sprayers feature patented and patent-pending ProSpray technology. “This technology delivers professional spray results in the palm of your hand and makes every project fast and easy from set-up through clean-up,” Grathwohl added.

The fully-repairable TrueCoat Pro II cordless and electric handheld sprayers are available at professional paint retailers across North America. The TrueCoat Pro II models support .011 - .017 reversible tips and include the 32-ounce Tilt-n-Spray Material Cup with cover and five liners, 515 TrueCoat Pro Reversible Tip, Pump Armor Storage and Start-Up Tool, Sprayer Storage Case and instructional DVD. The TrueCoat Pro II cordless version also comes with two 20V Lithium-Ion Power Pack Batteries and Charger and the TrueCoat Pro II electric model comes with a 15-foot SuperFlex Power Cord. Additional accessories are also available for the TrueCoat Pro II and other Graco handheld paint sprayers.
