The 3M Accuspray Spray Gun System with Standard PPS combines the simplicity and easy maintenance of our Accuspray spray guns and with the material-saving, rapid clean-up convenience of PPS. Replaceable atomizing heads afford the performance of a new gun, on demand and at a fraction of the cost. And the PPS disposable cup and liner system reduces solvent needed for cleanup by as much as 70%.
ONE System for Every Spraying Need
An all-in-one solution for mixing/measuring, filtering and spraying of primer, sealer, base and clear coat, our 3M™ Accuspray™ Spray Gun System with Standard PPS™ is a combination of convenience, versatility and efficiency. This system features the Accuspray™ ONE Spray Gun - a lightweight, composite spray gun body that is molded in one piece, eliminating the complexity, wear and cleaning of small parts and pieces. The spray gun uses a series of replaceable, transparent atomizing heads which can be reused 5-10 times and then simply removed and replaced. This affords the performance of a brand new spray gun, on demand and at a fraction of the price.
Atomizing heads are available in 1.3 mm and 1.4 mm sizes for sealers, primer surfacers, basecoats and topcoats; a 1.8 mm size for higher-viscosity materials such as primer and gel coats; and a 2.0 mm size for heavy-duty applications using fluids like adhesives, undercoats or industrial coatings. And fast, easy controls for fan diameter, fluid and air pressure allow for quick adjustment across jobs from spot repairs to full panel coverage requiring up to 12” vertical or horizontal spray patterns. This equipment works with our Standard PPS™ system of reusable paint cups and disposable lids and liners, so you can be done with cleaning paint cups forever. ONE gun – ONE system for a complete range of applications.
Advantages of the 3M™ PPS™ System
Unlike conventional paint cup systems, our 3M™ PPS™ eliminates the need for mixing paint in additional paint mix cups and then transferring the paint through a separate filter into a paint reservoir. This is an important advantage because waste occurs every time that a user transfers paint through mixing cups and filters. With PPS™, you place the disposable liner within the re-usable PPS™ Cup. Then simply mix the paint in the PPS™ disposable liner, snap the disposable lid (with the pre-welded filter) in place and attach the locking collar to complete the PPS™ System. With just these few simple steps, you're ready to start spraying.
Your Spray Gun Functions at any Angle, Even Upside Down
PPS™ allows the painter to spray consistently 90° to the part, no matter how the part is positioned. This makes material transfer more consistent, limits paint overspray and lowers paint consumption. Because PPS is a closed system, you can operate in any orientation - i.e. 360 degrees.
Clean Up is a Breeze and Uses Less Solvent
After spraying, the painter can use a sealing plug to seal and protect paint materials or simply discard disposable lid and liner, leaving only the adapter and spray gun to clean. Discard the disposable lid and liner in the appropriate approved waste containers specified by the paint manufacturer (or local government requirements). Use a small amount of solvent for cleaning the spray gun and the PPS™ adapter. With this disposable paint system, shops are often experiencing a 70% reduction in cleaning solvents, which means solvent cleaning savings and solvent disposal savings. Most guns can be cleaned with less than 3 oz. of solvent.
A Versatile System that Works with Most Spray Guns
Specifically designed PPS™ stainless steel metal adapters allow painters to use the PPS™ system with virtually any spray gun. Painters have also the option to use the 3M™ Accuspray™ ONE spray gun, which requires no adapters. Technicians have found that this spray gun can further reduce cleaning solvent usage and cleaning and maintenance time.
Reduces the Chance of Contamination Between Jobs
Because the painter uses a new disposable lid (with welded-in filter) and disposable liner for each mix, there is less risk of outside contamination due to mixing, filtering, and clean up. Using a fresh lid and liner with each paint job, rather than washing out reusable components, often improves overall productivity in prep and clean-up time by as much as 50%.
The Bottom Line: Why 3M™ PPS™ is the Paint & Coatings Spray System of Choice
3M™ PPS™ is an all-in-one disposable painting system that produces cleaner jobs, saves on paint consumption and reduces solvent usage by up to 70%. You'll find that technicians operate with greater efficiency and spend less time on tasks associated with cleaning the paint reservoir and spray gun.
