When it comes to solutions for the small shop, the customer who buys paint over-the-counter, automotive students and anyone who wants more out of their spray gun system for less, 3M Automotive Aftermarket Division has the perfect kit for any application. 

The new 3M™ Accuspray™ Spray Gun System with PPS™ combines the simplicity and easy maintenance of 3M™ Accuspray spray guns and with the solvent-reducing, material-saving, rapid-clean-up convenience of 3M™ PPS™ Paint Preparation System that pros love. It lets customers use one gun for all stages of their project, from start to finish including mixing/measuring, filtering and spraying (in any direction!) of primer, sealer, base and clear coat.

The kit is ideal for smaller auto body shops, non-auto repair industries, car enthusiasts and homeowners, and collision repair students and beginners

The kit features the new 3M™ Accuspray™ ONE Spray Gun and four atomizing heads --1.4mm for sealer, primer surfacer, basecoat and clearcoat and 1.8mm for primer and other medium viscosity coatings.  It also includes hard cup and retaining ring, disposable lids and liners, and more.  The convenient packaging takes the guesswork out of selecting a spray gun system and the kit has everything needed to get started, and the system delivers professional results at an affordable price.

3M™ Accuspray™ System with PPS™

The 3M™ Accuspray™ System spray gun performs like a premium gun without the premium price. It further expands the solvent-saving of the 3M™ PPS™ System, while reducing gun clean up and the expense of spray gun maintenance kits. The 3M™ Accuspray™ System features replaceable atomizing heads that allow easy cleanup and like-new performance with every atomizer replacement. The one-piece, molded composite spray gun body eliminates spray gun maintenance kits, while remaining lightweight, without compromising durability.  The spray gun features HVLP technology and can perform precision/touch up to production functions (8 – 12” vertical or horizontal) spray pattern.

3M™ PPS™ Paint Preparation System 

The 3M™ PPS™ System replaces traditional paint gun cups with a system of reusable paint cups and disposable lids and liners. The result is a system that improves transfer efficiency and reduces the amount of solvent needed for cleanup by as much as 70 percent. Painters can be done with cleaning paint cups forever.

3M™ PPS™ Starter and Refill kits offer the revolutionary 3M™ PPS™ System in user-friendly sizes. The starter kits include a 3M™ PPS™ hard cup and collar plus six lids, liners and sealing plugs. 

Existing spray guns can also be upgraded to use 3M PPS™ System with easy-to-install adapters, or you can use 3M™ Accuspray™ spray guns.
