3M™ PPS™ Mix Ratio Inserts help mix paint according to manufacturer guidelines for the 3M™ PPS™ (Legacy) paint preparation system. Mix ratio inserts are available for various cup sizes and manufacturers. 3M™ PPS™ is a complete painting system that allows the painter to measure, mix, filter, and spray paint materials.

3M™ PPS™ Mix Ratio Inserts make it easy to mix the appropriate amount of paint for use with the 3M™ PPS™ (Legacy) paint preparation system (PDF, 4.5 Mb). Mix ratios printed on the film insert take all the guesswork out of how much to use. With the insert in the cup, the measuring process is much like using a metal mix stick. You look down into the cup as ingredients are poured, making it simple to see exactly what you need. We offer a wide variety of ratio inserts customized to specific cup sizes and manufacturers.
 

3M™ PPS™ Mix Ratio Inserts
Advantages of the 3M™ PPS™ System
Unlike conventional paint cup systems, our 3M™ PPS™ eliminates the need for mixing paint in additional paint mix cups and then transferring the paint through a separate filter into a paint reservoir. This is an important advantage because waste occurs every time that a user transfers paint through mixing cups and filters. With PPS™, you place the disposable liner within the re-usable PPS™ Cup. Then simply mix the paint in the PPS™ disposable liner, snap the disposable lid (with the pre-welded filter) in place and attach the locking collar to complete the PPS™ System. With just these few simple steps, you're ready to start spraying.

Your Spray Gun Functions at any Angle, Even Upside Down
PPS™ allows the painter to spray consistently 90° to the part, no matter how the part is positioned. This makes material transfer more consistent, limits paint overspray and lowers paint consumption. Because PPS is a closed system, you can operate in any orientation - i.e. 360 degrees.

 
Mix ratios printed on the film insert take all the guesswork out of how much to use.
Clean Up is a Breeze and Uses Less Solvent
After spraying, the painter can use a sealing plug to seal and protect paint materials or simply discard disposable lid and liner, leaving only the adapter and spray gun to clean. Discard the disposable lid and liner in the appropriate approved waste containers specified by the paint manufacturer (or local government requirements). Use a small amount of solvent for cleaning the spray gun and the PPS™ adapter. With this disposable paint system, shops are often experiencing a 70% reduction in cleaning solvents, which means solvent cleaning savings and solvent disposal savings. Most guns can be cleaned with less than 3 oz. of solvent.

A Versatile System that Works with Most Spray Guns
Specifically designed PPS™ stainless steel metal adapters allow painters to use the PPS™ system with virtually any spray gun (PDF, 310 Kb). Painters have also the option to use the 3M™ Accuspray™ ONE spray gun (PDF, 3.7 Mb), which requires no adapters. Technicians have found that this spray gun further reduces cleaning solvent usage and cleaning and maintenance time.

Reduces the Chance of Contamination Between Jobs
Because the painter uses a new disposable lid (with welded-in filter) and disposable liner for each mix, there is less risk of outside contamination due to mixing, filtering, and clean up. Using a fresh lid and liner with each paint job, rather than washing out reusable components, often improves overall productivity in prep and clean-up time by as much as 50%.

The Bottom Line: Why 3M™ PPS™ is the Paint & Coatings Spray System of Choice
3M™ PPS™ is an all-in-one disposable painting system that produces cleaner jobs, saves on paint consumption and reduces solvent usage by up to 70%. You'll find that technicians operate with greater efficiency and spend less time on cleaning tasks. 3M PPS offers many advantages for any one spraying liquid coatings from a spray gun with cup.
