FuseFXTM – Preparing the FuseFX Syringe                                                    Back to main instructions


Start by removing the END CAP located between the plungers. SAVE THIS END CAP, you will need it to close/cap the tip of the syringe when not in use.




Cap removed




Stand the syringe with the tip pointing up for at least 20 to 30 minutes, this will ensure that all the air floats to the tip.

Example 1:                                                                                    Example 2:
       

Example 3:


Air floated to the tip.





CAREFULLY cut off the tips of the syringe with a sharp knife.




Lay tissues at the edge of a table and place the syringe on the tissues. Now CAREFULLY cut the tips off the syringe.




 Lightly run the tip of knife in the small opening to make sure there is no “burrs”.



Test fit the end cap to make sure it fits properly.



You will notice that there is a flat side and a round side to the cap. Line-up the flat side of the cap with the flat side of the syringe tip.
Apply a small preasure so the cap will "snap on". DO NOT USE EXCESIVE FORCE. If it does not snap into place,
lightly run the tip of knife again in the small opening to make sure there is no other “burrs”.



Priming the Syringe

This is not necessary, but it will give you a balanced amount of material until the tube is empty.
During the filling process, some air does get trapped and you may want to "prime" the syringe.
Some extra paint material has been added to the syringes for this purpose.

How to prime syringes.
Once the syringe tips have been cut and de-burred as described above, place the syringe back on the holder, tip up, this again will ensure that all the air bubbles are at the top.

             

 Now take the syringe and squirt out the air into a small cup until the paint comes out evenly.

Holding the syringe properly

    

You don't have to squirt out much, only a little bit to ensure the tubes are equal. You don't need to remove all of the air out either, a little bit is fine.
Once primed, you are ready to use the syringe.



Once opened, store the FuseFX syringes downwards on the Syringe Holder. This will ensure that any air bubbles remain at the top.
