CFCM Wagner Logo 400WAGNER completes the product family of airspray guns with a gravity cup gun that enables coating results and efficient material consumption, especially for small-area applications.

In addition to the automatic model TOPFINISH GA 1020/1030, the product family of WAGNER airspray guns also includes the manual gun TOPFINISH GM 1030P with paint connection. The new TOPFINISH GM 1030G with gravity cup can also be used for a wide range of applications in various industrial sectors, such as the wood, metal or plastics industries. 

For flexible processing of low- to high-viscosity materials with a high solids content, the GM 1030G, just like the GM 1030P, has a nozzle with a maximum material passage of 9 millimetres. All components in contact with the material are made of durable stainless steel. Solvent-resistant seals allow uncomplicated use of the gun with both water- and solvent-based materials. Depending on the application, a wide range of proven air caps, nozzle sizes and other accessory components can be used, each also compatible with the GA 1020/1030 and GM 1030P models. The different hard plastic cups can be used several times. 

Like the GM 1030P, the new gravity cup variant also produces a uniform spray pattern thanks to various functions. The optimized air channel ensures low paint mist and saves material consumption. The GM 1030G is equipped with a fixable needle stroke adjustment for process-reliable coating with a consistent material flow rate. "This additionally optimizes material use. Overall, an application efficiency of up to 88 percent can be achieved during coating," reports Peter Neu, Senior Product Manager at WAGNER. The large material and air passages of the components also support atomization and at the same time allow fast working. 

As with all other WAGNER guns, great importance has been attached to the long service life and easy GM 1030G. The two-part nozzle, consisting of the nozzle head and nozzle nut, is sufficient to replace only the nozzle head when necessary instead of replacing the complete nozzle. But that's not the only reason for a significant reduction in the cost of wearing parts: long-life needle packings and solvent-resistant seals made of polyethylene contribute to lower maintenance costs and high availability. The desired spray jet width can be set with just one rotary knob. The gun's low weight and ergonomic design support fatigue-free work even over longer periods.

PPG Receives EPA Registration for COPPER ARMOR Paint Powered by Corning Guardiant Technology

PPG Copper Armour Paint

PPG announced that the company has received U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) registration for its PPG COPPER ARMOR antimicrobial paint containing Corning Guardiant technology, proven to kill 99.9% of bacteria and viruses on the painted surface, including SARS-CoV-2, in two hours.

The Copper Armor product’s efficacy was measured using tests that simulate real-world contamination that are mandated by the EPA for products making claims against harmful pathogens. Following this registration, PPG will begin selling the product in late 2021 through U.S. PPG PAINTS stores, independent retailers and select home improvement stores.
