Effects of UV Rays on Spray Equipment

UV rays can have significant effects on the performance and lifespan of your spray equipment. 

UV rays can cause damage to the components of spray equipment, including hoses, nozzles, and spray guns.

Effects to your spray equipment can include the following:

  • Discoloration and Brittleness of Hoses. UV rays can cause hoses to become discolored and brittle over time. This can lead to cracking and splitting, resulting in leaks and reduced spray pressure. To prevent UV damage to hoses, it is important to store them out of direct sunlight and avoid leaving them outside for extended periods.
  • Damage to Spray Nozzles. Spray nozzles are often made of plastic or other materials that can be damaged by UV rays. Exposure to UV rays can cause nozzles to become brittle and crack, leading to reduced spray patterns and inconsistent coverage. To prevent UV damage to spray nozzles, store them in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.
  • Reduced Performance of Spray Guns. Spray guns are an essential component of spray equipment. Too much exposure to UV rays can cause spray guns to become brittle, leading to reduced performance and decreased efficiency. To prevent UV damage to spray guns, store them in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and use protective covers when not in use.

    UV rays can have significant effects on the performance and lifespan of spray equipment. To prevent UV damage, it is important to store spray equipment properly and to use UV-resistant materials where possible. By taking these steps, you can help ensure the longevity and effectiveness of your spray equipment.
