As every painter knows, once paint has been mixed, it’s sold. You either use it or lose it, which quickly can cut into your bottom line. What if we told you mixing less paint yet getting the same or better coverage was possible?
With the 3M™ Performance Spray Gun, that possibility can become reality. It offers superior transfer efficiency, all in the palm of your hand. Don’t cut down on your efficiency – start spraying the smart way.
Third-party tested, painter approved. It’s everything you expect from your best spray gun – just smarter. Spray a full range of high-performance automotive coatings.
The integrated system with 3M™ PPS™ Series 2.0 Spray Cups and replaceable nozzles delivers the fastest changeovers in the industry, which adds up to faster cycle times and more time in the zone.
Innovative quick-change replaceable nozzle technology means clean-up can be as simple as a twist and a wipe. And every time you put on a fresh nozzle, it’s like getting a brand-new spray gun.
Made from an impact-resistant composite material, it’s the lightest spray gun in the world. All to enhance your comfort without sacrificing performance or durability.
Getting a smooth, even finish and avoiding rework is essential when painting a car. The 3M™ Performance Spray Gun is your platform to achieve this. Whether you are working in the car refinish area or in an industrial paint shop, a wide range of nozzles is available for different applications. Choose between pressurised nozzles and gravity ones - with large orifice sizes for higher viscosity paints or even primers down to small orifices for very fine atomisation as needed for clear coats.
The 3M™ Performance Spray Gun is easy to clean. Simply drain the paint from the nozzle, then rinse the nozzle with the appropriate solvent until it runs clean. Remove the nozzle from the gun, wipe the needle clean and air blow it dry. The gun body should never go into a spray gun cleaner. Cleaning is much quicker than with traditional spray guns as the paint only runs through the nozzle and not the whole gun.
The 3M™ Performance Atomising Heads on the 3M™ Performance Spray Gun allow you to easily spray a wide range of coatings - from stains and primers to topcoats and even adhesives. It can be used at every stage of the paint process, with interchangeable nozzles for fast changeovers.

Our recommended nozzle life equates to approximately 150-200 refinish hours. Assuming approximately 10 refinish hours for each job, each nozzle could be used for 15-20 jobs. The actual lifetime will be dependent on the application and use of the product.
The amount of pressure needed depends on which nozzle type you’re using. The HVLP nozzle operates at 1.4 bar inlet pressure, whereas the fine finish nozzles are 2.0 bar in pressure.
With the 3M™ Performance Spray Gun, you can apply most of the coating types typically used in a body shop. Generally, the operating pressure range is between 0.5 bar - 2.6 bar. Operating Pressure Range (OPR) is the inlet pressure range for safe function of the spray gun.
Important: Always refer to paint manufacturers recommendations.
The composed body of the 3M™ Performance Spray Gun is up to 50% lighter than conventional metal spray guns. The advanced impact-resistant, stainless steel-reinforced composite body was optimised by kinesiologist for improved comfort and less operator fatigue.
