Bulk Lids for Added Efficiency with 3M™ PPS™
Excellent for stocking PPS™ Lids efficiently and cost-effectively, 3M™ PPS™ Lids are available in cases containing 25 disposable lids with pre-welded micron filters for straining paint materials. Lids feature either 125 micron filters (light blue)), often recommended for water-borne paint materials; or 200 micron filters (clear) for traditional solvent-based paint materials. Always reference the paint manufacturer to ensure the recommended filter to strain the paint material.

Lids and sealing plugs are designed specifically for the 3M™ PPS™ paint preparation system. Lids are sized for the range of 3M™ PPS™ Cups, allowing technicians to up to 28 fluid oz (850 mL). Lid sizes include:
  • 3M™ PPS™ Midi Lids — for use with 13.5 fluid oz (400mL) 3M™ PPS™ Cups, ideal for spot and 2-panel repairs
  • 3M™ PPS™ Standard and Large Lids — for use with 22 fluid oz (650mL) and 28 fluid oz (850mL) PPS™ Cups, excellent for 3-panel and 4-panel repairs

Advantages of the 3M™ PPS™ System
Unlike conventional paint cup systems, our 3M™ PPS™ (PDF, 706.8 Kb) 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.

An all-in-one system for spray coatings

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, 310.0 Kb). Painters have also the option to use the 3M™ Accuspray™ ONE spray gun. 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.

Customer Reviews
3M™ PPS™ Lids is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product I simply cannot believe the comments that I am reading here. The 3M PPS cups have worked flawlessly in my business, particularly when shooting urethane paints like BM Advance and the SW Emerald version. So much better than the HVLP metal cup with check valve system. It has been flawless. The screen in the lid obviates the need for fine filtering paints before spraying which was time consuming and messy. Honestly, I can't believe these guys are complaining.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Great product Easy to use a lot less wash thinner to clean the gun and cups because the liners are disposable.
Date published: 2020-05-01
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Design I have used these in my cabinet paint shop now for almost two years for primer only and have gone thru more than six cups and they are not inexpensive. The problem with these is the mini check valve mounted on the bottom of the cup, about the size of a shirt button and its not individually replaceable. when this thing gets a little paint or debris inside it stops working and renders the cup useless. Making these available as a separate part would greatly improve this product. or a better design where the check valve is not on the bottom.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Need more collars How do I go about getting just the collars if that's what I need? I have about extra 10 cups because I needed just the collar.
Date published: 2018-07-31
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a fan I don't know what it is about the collar but it sure likes to seize on the cup. Doesn't seem to matter how clean it is. Broke several of them so far. I do not have any issues like that with the competitors version.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice Concept I like the concept and design but do have issues with the pressure relief in the bottom of the cup going bad too often and quickly and you can not buy replacements. I also believe it could be made of a better product as they last at maximum 3 months when you use them on a daily basis. They tend to get out of shape and warn which causes you to lose pressure in the cup. All that said it is the best of its kind on the market with less flaws than competitor options.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The PPS systems is great. The cup not so much After a while they always start to lose their shape and the collar won't screw on anymore. I wish they had a metal cup and collar option.
