Helpful tips on how to avoid cartridge waste.

Tired of running out of cartridges even after working out how many you thought you'd need? Not only is this annoying and time consuming, but it’s also avoidable.

If it is only a few hours up to a couple of days, simply pull the now cured centimetre off the top of the nozzle and you're good to go. Any longer than a few days and you will have to change the nozzle. Cartridge nozzles are available to purchase - part number 53001.
