PPS™ is a complete painting system from 3M™ which produces cleaner jobs,
decreases solvent usage and gun cleaning time, and can improve operator
efficiency by as much as 15%. Specifically designed adapters* allow
painters to use the PPS™ system with virtually any spray gun.
PPS™ replaces traditional mixing cups and filters and drastically reduces
the amount of solvent required for gun cleaning. The lids and liners fit into
the plastic cup and securing collar. The lid, liner and built-in filter are all
disposable, leaving only the adapter and spray gun to be cleaned. It is possible
to clean your paint gun with as little as 80 grams of solvent. With these
disposable parts, shops can see a 70% saving in cleaning solvent use - meaning
less operator exposure to solvents and a reduction in VOCs (volatile organic compounds).
Key Benefits of using the 3M™ TM PPS™ Paint Preparation System
3M™ PPS™ Colour Match Film brings a new level of flexibility, innovation and accuracy to one of the most difficult challenges in shops today: achieving the perfect colour match. 3M PPS Colour Match Film allows users to spray the film exactly as they would a traditional spray out card, then peel the film from its backing and stick it to the substrate. Once attached, the technician is free to stand back and view the film from any angle. Because the film contours, it offers enhanced side-tone capabilities and a more accurate representation of how the colour would appear once applied; giving painters the confidence that they have met a perfect match. When an acceptable match has been achieved, simply reapply the film to the textured backing for easy cataloguing and reuse.
