    Enhancing paint shop efficiency

    The innovative system from 3M enables painters to mix less paint and drastically reduce the amount of solvent and time required for gun cleaning, improving operator efficiency by as much as 15%. Makes your job easier with this innovative system that helps increase efficiency by eliminating the need for traditional mixing cups and paint strainers. Unlike traditional spray cups, paint is mixed and sprayed out of the same 3M™ PPS™ liner with a lid and built-in filter. Specifically designed adapters allow painters to use the 3M™ PPS™ system with virtually any spray gun.

    A key advantage of this closed system is that it enables a painter’s spray gun to function at any angle, even upside down. Safe from outside contamination, the 3M™ PPS™ system offers a cleaner, more efficient solution for all repairs from small spots to large surfaces.

  • The key benefits of using 3M™ PPS™ Paint Preparation System include:

    • Only one 3M™ PPS™ cup for mixing and spraying
    • Enables painters to mix less paint
    • Up to 70% saving of cleaning solvent
    • Closed system – no outside contamination
    • Faster system – from mixing to disposal
    • Less operator exposure to solvents and reduction in VOCs
    • Spray gun functions at any angle
    • Available in 4 sizes: 180, 400, 650 & 850ml

3M™ Dirt Trap Protection System

Help increase paint booth productivity
Increase paint booth utilisation by reducing daily and periodic maintenance.

Save finishing time and increase customer satisfaction
When airborne contaminants settle on your freshly painted surfaces, it creates an extra step to prepare the finish to meet your customer’s expectations. This additional time could be spent on another job and improve your throughput.

Help protect your investment
Your paint booth is one of the largest investments in your shop. Keeping this asset in top working condition is a never-ending task. Cleaning, scraping and re‑painting takes away from valuable production time. Repeated washing introduces moisture, which promotes premature rust and corrosion. The 3M™ Dirt Trap Protection System minimises booth down time and helps keep this valuable piece of equipment in top working condition.

Excellent for waterborne paint systems
Waterborne paint systems require more airflow to accelerate dry time. This increased airflow could mean more airborne dust and dirt. 3M™ Dirt Trap Protection Material helps trap these airborne contaminants and keeps them away from your paint job. Trap the dirt and help reduce your compounding and polishing times.
