    Spray It is aimed at the novice paint sprayer and sets out to completely de-mystify the subject, by setting out in simple terms the how, why and what of achieving a professional-quality spray finish.

    Monday 30th April 2007

    Leading compressed air products and control systems specialist, Thorite, has produced a new full colour wall chart, which illustrates and lists hundreds of TC Push-in tube fittings and accessories.

    TC Push-in tube fittings have revolutionised the speed with which control systems on pneumatically-operated production equipment can be piped up. The fittings ensure a fast, air-tight connection and are light in weight - and light on the pocket - making them extremely popular with fitters and financial directors alike!
