SPRAY GUNS REPRESENT AUTO INDUSTRY STANDARD.

Anest Iwata High T.E.C. Technology EPA Compliant spray guns are now the industry standard, throughout Europe, for the automotive manufacturing industry.

Air atomising spray guns are still used for many reinforcing applications such as door shuts, engine compartments and tailgates. With the advent of waterborne coatings, the reduction of overspray from reinforcing applications has become a critical factor, which is where High T.E.C. (High Transfer Efficiency Control) Technology comes to the forefront.

In independent tests carried out by the MIRRC, transfer efficiencies of up to 92 per cent were achieved with High T.E.C. Technology spray guns. Every High T.E.C. spray gun is supplied with an Official EPA Certificate of Compliance issued by the MIRRC.

It is this transfer efficiency onto the areas to be coated that enables overspray onto other areas to be virtually eliminated. This avoids the problems experienced with water-borne coatings when overspray affects the finish achieved by the electrostatic bells and top and side coaters.

High T.E.C. Technology spray guns also enable better lay down to be achieved which is an important consideration for colours such as metallic silvers and pearlescent colours containing mica particles.

Already, manufacturers such as Jaguar, Land Rover, MGRover and Honda, to name just a few, are benefiting from the use of High T.E.C. Technology spray guns. With the incredible transfer efficiencies, considerable savings in paint costs are also being achieved.

Car manufacturers in other parts of Europe have also chosen High T.E.C. Technology spray guns and the High T.E.C. success story is repeated in countries around the world.

High T.E.C. Technology was developed using the very latest in computer aided design programmes. Anest Iwata developed the airflow dynamics necessary to achieve these levels of transfer efficiency.

It is not only in "on line" reinforcing applications that High T.E.C. Technology is used by automotive manufacturers. Spot repair areas, including dealer bodyshops, are also using the gravity feed versions of the spray guns.
