Main body or casing

Flicker comb and fingers

The comb and fingers are generally made from stainless or galvanised (zinc coated) steel to prevent rusting.

When the handle is turned, the comb and fingers rotate, picking up and carrying mix from the main casing and flicking it onto the wall .

Ratchet bar and flicker plate

Tensioner

Manual coating sprayers hand-held render tyrolean roughcast pebbledash Flickatex machine Tensioner Some models have a tensioner, which is located on the side of the casing and is used to adjust the flicker plate’s position via the ratchet bar. Different tensions are placed on the comb fingers by altering the position of the flicker plate, which subsequently limits or increases the thickness (texture) of mix being sprayed out of the casing.
The appearance of the applied mix sprayed onto the wall can change significantly by controlling the thickness of the mix using the tensioner.

Crank handle

It is attached to a drive spindle, which in turn houses and rotates the comb roller inside the main casing of the applicator. The crank handle is usually replaceable.

Holding or carrying handle

Reducer plate

Reducer plates are generally only found on sprayers with metal casings and can be taken on and off, depending on the spray area required.

With the plate on, the volume of mix leaving the sprayer is greatly reduced (this is ideal for smaller, more concentrated areas). With the plate off, the volume of mix is not limited (perfect for larger areas). The reducer plate is held loosely in place by slotting in-between two retainers.

Plastic manual coatings sprayers

Plastic manual coating sprayers have all the same parts as metal ones, except that their cases are made from plastic. The plastic casing was introduced to enable the sprayer to be lighter and more durable (no denting through knocks and drops) and also easier to clean after use.
