Colad Snap Lid system is designed as a paint application system suitable for all types of paint. We’d advice to check with your paint supplier which micron to use for a specific type of paint. In general the 90 micron filter (white) can be used for clear coat, the 130 micron filter (blue) for waterbased base and/or clear coat, the 190 micron filter (green) for conventional base coat and the 280 micron filter (red) for primer. However this might vary depending several conditions such as the recommendation from the paint manufacturer.
To get the best output from Colad Snap Lid System you should prevent too much air remaining between your spray gun and the built-in filter. This can be done by slowly tilting the gun after attaching the paint cup, in order to let the air out and the paint in, or by tilting the gun back and forward and release a bit of output. Once the transparent part of the lid between the filter and the spray gun is over 2/3 filled with paint, you will achieve the best paint flow.
For a visualization of the recommended way to place the lid on the cup you can watch our ‘Colad Snap Lid System user manual’ video
. We recommend to attach the lid from one side, and slowly use both hands around both sides of the lid towards the other side. The lids are made to fit the cup perfectly, therefore you don’t have to apply excessive force to attach the lid properly.
Colad Snap Lid System can be refilled by gently lifting one side of the lid, adding more paint and reattach the lid as recommended. We don’t advise to refill more than once. If you want to refill Colad Snap Lid System, only do so if you paint in one go. If you have a certain time in between before re-using, we’d advice to use a clean snap lid.
If you have leftover paint in your paint cup, you can replace the Snap Lid by one of our Snap Lid Sealing Cap
to prevent your paint from contamination during a break.
Due to the strong pressure in vacuum systems some dust or bigger paint particles that you want to filter out are pushed through the filter by the intense pressure. Colad Snap Lid System is a gravity feed system guaranteeing all particles to be filtered out while spraying. A gravity feed system guarantees a continuous and constant material output as well, since it is based upon the original spray gun designs and engineering.
No, never take out the filter! The filter primarily prevents against pollution and particles out of the paint and makes sure you’ll always have a consistent flow and no issues with sputtering output.
No, never take the valve locker off! This unique system prevents a vacuum and guarantees a stable paint flow.
