Abstract

A hand held paint applicator comprises, a reservoir 6a which may serve as the main body of the paint applicator, a brush head 5a which may be detachable from the reservoir and a conduit 3a linking the two parts together so as to allow paint to flow from the reservoir to the brush head. The detachable brush head may be fixed to the reservoir by means of a screw thread or clip, and at the opposite end of the reservoir there may be a plunger 1a passing through a seal 2a so as to force paint from the reservoir when pressed down. The paint arrives at the brush head under the combined action of gravity and pressure on the plunger. The reservoir may be filled with paint by either removing the detachable brush head or by immersing the brush head in the paint and pulling up on the plunger.

Description

2353698 DUCRIPTION COYST AT FLOW I AINT AFMICATOR i Ant a>[icntors come in

Adetachable brush head Fig 2, affixes tD the base of the reservoir, a caiduit, Fig 3 (3a), unites the brush heaj whith the rasacvok, through which paint amd like suhstinces can pass, a conduit of plastic tubeing is favored for the purpose of this description, though a conduit of any kiY2 is claimed in the context of this invention.. constant flow of paint, or like substances is achieve at the brush head 5a, by a combination of centrifugal and propellent force, acting on the paint in the reservoir 6a, and finding outlet through the conduit to the brush head. The applicator is recharged using one of two methods, first by removing the detachable brush head Fig 2, and filling the reservoir by the conven7ional method, or vacum induction can be employed,by half immersing the brush head into an external paint source, and retracting tho plunger to the top of the cylinder.

CONSTANT FLITA iMIT AMLIC-TW 1, A hand held, free standing paint applicator, producing a constant flow of paint or like substance onto the brush head by means of a conduit connecting the paint reservoir to the brush head 2 A paint applicator as claimed in Claim 1, where a Plunger passing through the body of the applicator is employed to increase flow,as needed. 3 An applicator as claimed in Claim 1 and 2 including a detachable brush head of the screw or clip on type affixed to its base. 4 An apnlicator as claimed in the proceding Claims 1 to 3 that is recharged by detaching the brush head, or vacum induction. 5 A paint applicator that achives a constant flow of paint or like substance by the use of centifugal force. 6 An applicator where the paint reservoir forms the mKn body of the applicator.
