3M™ PPS™ Adapter converts paint spray guns for use with the 3M™ Paint Preparation System (PPS™). Specifically designed adapters, allows painters to use the PPS™ with virtually any spray gun model. To use this adapter, remove the existing spray gun cup. Then simply thread the correct PPS™ Adapter into the spray gun.
3M™ PPS™ Adapter converts leading commercial spray guns into ones that can use the 3M™ Paint Preparation System (PPS™), save workers time in the preparation of paint materials: measuring, mixing, and filtering of paint materials. PPS™ is a all-in-one disposable painting system that produces cleaner jobs, saves on paint consumption, reduces solvent usage by up to 70%, and improves the operator’s efficiency by up to 15% between the prep (mixing, measuring, and filtering) and clean-up time (time associated with cleaning the paint reservoir and spray gun).
PPS™ System can be Used with Virtually any Spray Gun
Specifically designed PPS™ stainless steel metal adapters allow painters to use the PPS™ system with virtually any spray gun. Painters can also use the 3M™ Accuspray™ replaceable atomizing head spray guns to further reduce solvent use and spray gun cleaning and maintenance time.
To use the PPS™ Adapter, remove the existing spray gun cup. Then simply thread the correct PPS™ Adapter into the spray gun.
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 further reduces 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 15%.
The Bottom Line: Why 3M is the Paint 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 tec
