Bosch’s range now includes two tools that complement each other perfectly when it comes to applying paint to walls: the PPR 250 electric paint roller is designed for consistent, virtually drip-free painting of large, smooth surfaces such as ceilings and walls. The PFS 105 E Wallpaint fine spray system replaces the paintbrush when painting textured surfaces such as masonry, and it makes it easier to apply paint in hard-to-reach areas such as corners and edges. All conventional emulsion and latex paints can be used.

PPR 250 paint roller: always the right amount of paint thanks to “Paint Control”
The PPR 250 electric paint roller enables even inexperienced users to easily, quickly and cleanly paint walls and ceilings. Open the paint bucket, stir the paint, hang the tool on the bucket, insert the hose, activate the pump and you can start painting. The amount of paint applied to the PPR 250's roll can be precisely controlled thanks to the “Paint Control” technology by pressing the button on the remote control. The tool only ever feeds the required amount of paint. The paint is evenly applied to the roll thanks to the special design of the paint distributor. The roll is protected by the housing. This results in a very consistent paint finish and virtually drip-free operation. This is also helped by the paint being fed directly from the bucket, which saves time and minimizes the need for masking. To paint ceilings or surfaces close to the floor, you screw the extension that comes complete with the tool onto the 40-centimeter-long handpiece, simply move the remote control from one slot to the other, and then you can carry on working comfortably without having to stretch or bend down. The working length with the extension is 120 centimeters. Flexibility is also provided by the tool's five-meter-long hose. Moreover, the PPR 250 is simply hung on the paint bucket and conveniently carried to the next work area. If the roll needs to be replaced, one can be obtained from Bosch's range of accessories. However, rolls from other manufacturers are also compatible. When the work is finished, the system is quickly emptied and cleaned thanks to the “Easy Clean” technology. To do this, all paint-carrying parts are removed without the need for tools, connected to a tap using an adapter, and simply rinsed out. This is made possible because the hose pump can be separated. Only its rotor is fitted to the tool and the rest is completely detachable. After cleaning, the tool can be stored in a space-saving way.

PFS 105 E Wallpaint fine spray system for textured surfaces
Do-it-yourselfers can now use the PFS 105 E Wallpaint fine spray system to do all the jobs that they used to do with a paintbrush. Its spray gun can be used to easily apply an even coat of paint to textured walls and hard-to-reach areas like corners and edges. This is thanks to the “Easy Jet” nozzle, the “Spray Control” technology and the powerful turbine.

“Easy Jet” is a slot nozzle that is optimized for wall paint. It is 30 percent more efficient than a round nozzle and offers four spraying options: vertical or horizontal with a wide or narrow spray jet. The optimum paint flow is selected using a setting wheel. The result is extremely consistent by the “Spray Control” technology – a low-pressure system that generates a very fine paint mist. “Spray Control” prevents excessive application of paint, ensures a uniform surface and also saves up to 15 percent paint. This technology has already proven itself in the PFS 105 E fine spray system for lacquers and varnishes, which has been on the market since 2008. The spray head optimized for that tool is also compatible with the new Wallpaint model, and it is available as an accessory. Thanks to tool-free fitting by means of SDS connections, the spray heads can be quickly and easily changed when required. The SDS also makes it easier to change the paint and clean the tool.

Moreover, the PFS 105 E Wallpaint fine spray system has a powerful turbine with electronic air flow control. Up to eight square meters of paint can be applied with the 1,000-milliliter paint tank. And the tool follows you everywhere on its large wheels. The 3.4-meter-long hose also offers freedom of movement. All of the parts can be stored in integrated storage compartments after use.

Both tools will be available at retail outlets from April 2012 onwards: the PPR 250 electric paint roller for 139.99 euros, the PFS 105 E Wallpaint fine spray system for 189.99 euros, each including VAT.
