“Over the last six years, we’ve visited end users who’ve provided input
in developing gun models that directly fulfill their application needs,
without having to retrofit their guns with accessories,” said Wendy
Hartley, Graco Product Marketing Manager for the Industrial Products
Fifty new electrostatic spray gun models contain more durable components
for certain applications:
The round spray nozzle and air cap combinations maximize
wrap-around on cylindrical objects.
The soft spray air cap and nozzles are ideal for small,
lightweight parts that need a fine finish with minimal paint flow.
The aerospace air cap is designed for high paint flows to
quickly cover large areas (like airplanes) with the finest finish.
The externally charged waterborne guns charge waterborne
material at the tip of the spray gun – no electrostatic isolation
system equipment needed.
The fixed fluid flow guns are made to extend component life
when applying metallic and extremely abrasive materials.
The HVLP (high volume low pressure) air cap is labeled
according to environmental standards.
The high air flow model gives painters the feel and reach they
need to paint from a distance and around large, complex areas.
“Customers asked and we listened with dozens of updates to improve
durability, ease of adjustments and spray performance,” said Hartley.
“The improvements apply to all Pro Xp guns already out in the market.”
New components that fit on Pro Xp guns already installed include
color-coded nozzles, new air caps and a new barrel gasket. High
conductivity gun models now come with a precision high wear nozzle,
which has a metal tip for wear protection, and a new high conductivity
kit with a removable case.
New accessories for all models include high wear electrodes, fluid
filters and adjustment knobs.
Pro Xp manual electrostatic spray guns first entered the industrial
finishing market in 2012. Built in the USA with durable components, Pro
Xp spray guns come with a three-year warranty and Graco’s A+ Service
promise. For more information about Pro Xp guns and accessories, contact
