Mix less. Paint more. Spray smart.

As every painter knows, once paint has been mixed, it's sold. You either use it or lose it, which can cut into your bottom line. What if we told you mixing less paint yet getting the same or better coverage was possible? With the 3M™ Performance Spray Gun, that possibility can become reality. It's superior transfer efficiency in the palm of your hand. Don't cut down on your efficiency - start spraying the smart way.
