The 3M™ PPS™ - Paint Preparation System replaces traditional paint mixing cups and filters and drastically reduces the amount of solvent required for gun cleaning.
3M™ PPS™ is a unique, closed paint system which eliminates the need for separate mixing cups and filters. Instead, paint is mixed in a liner bag which marries to a direct filter and is then mounted on the spray gun with a dedicated adapter. As freshly filtered paint is dispensed, the liner bag collapses, allowing the spray gun to function at any angle. Liner bag and filter are disposable, leaving only the spray gun and adapter to be cleaned. 3M™ PPS™ is therefore a cleaner, faster system, safe from outside contamination and offering considerable time and solvent savings on gun and parts cleaning.
- Only one 3M™ PPS™ cup for mixing and spraying
- Closed system - no outside contamination
- Up to 70% savings of cleaning solvent
- Less operator exposure to solvents and reduction in VOCs
- Faster system - from mixing to disposal
- Spray gun functions at any angle
Spray Gun Adaptors
Check the adaptor selector tool on 3M.com for the appropriate adaptor for any spray gun.
Various Basecoat colors and Clearcoat can be premixed in the mixing room, prior to entering the spray booth. Each liner with its lid in place can be sealed with a sealing cap (there are 25 included in the 16000 pack).
A simple blow-through of solvent will allow a new liner of refinish material to be introduced, while the used (or partly used) liner is capped and held for future use.
Consult paint or solvent Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for safe use and disposal.
A squeeze bottle (PN 37720) containing solvent or water enables fast gun cleaning when the 3M PPS cup is removed. This means that the operator can switch, for instance, from Basecoat color to Clearcoat without leaving the booth.
