Gun & Spray Atomization
The MaxiMist professional spray gun features corrosion resistive, lightweight, aircraft-grade aluminum Aircap and ring. The needle and tip are made of stainless steel. The Duck Bill Valve minimizes clogs. What all these mean is that the gun runs smoothly with fewer interruptions and needs less maintenance.
The gun also features an ergonomic Cool Grip handle. The airflow passage of the gun is located through the top of the spray gun. What this does is, it eliminates heat buildup in the cool grip handle.
The Ultra Pro is a very well built machine, with attention to the smallest of detail. The correct tip and needle sizing allow better solution use and the soft 1.7 psi spray tip pressure allows overall great atomization. Direct Air Flow system provides unrestricted airflow to the Spray head, giving better atomization. There is no need for a separate gun for face and body, with the control and precision the MaxiMist Ultra Pro offers.
