London, Ontario — October 4, 2017 — 3M Canada has introduced the next evolution in its paint application technology – the 3M PPS Series 2.0 Spray Cup System.
According to 3M Canada, the 3M PPS Series 2.0 Spray Cup System improves the flow of the painting process with an improved spray cup design that delivers advanced performance, efficiency and cleanliness.
The first disposable paint cup system, the 3M PPS Paint Preparation System, was introduced to Canada in 2002. The system reinvented how painters in the collision repair industry managed the paint process, reducing solvent use by up to 70 percent and decreasing prep time by up to 50 percent. It quickly became the standard for painters around the world.
Now, after consulting with hundreds of painters from around the world including those from the 3M PPS World Cup event in Detroit this summer, 3M has introduced the new 2.0 Spray Cup System.

This new system eliminates the need for a separate collar, adds a quarter-turn lid locking system and incorporates new features that increase productivity and reduce downtime. The result is a painting process that flows more smoothly, helps prevent contamination of the paint and improves painters’ confidence in the quality of their work.
“We’re very excited to be introducing the new 3M PPS Series 2.0 Spray Cup System to our customers to improve their overall painting experience,” says Craig Jalbert, Marketing Manager for Paint and Finish, 3M Canada’s Automotive Aftermarket Division. “Feedback from painters in Canada, who have used the new system, has been extremely positive. We’re confident that the 3M PPS Series 2.0 Spray Cup System will make their work easier and more efficient as painters can expect higher-quality paint jobs with reduced need for rework or call-backs.”
The elimination of the separate collar with the quarter-turn lid locking system improves the cleanliness of the painting process and eliminates potential sources of contamination from equipment cleaning or maintenance. The easy assembly and refilling process improves the efficiency for high-production painters, while the wider adapter allows them to use a larger cup for consistent, efficient batch painting.
“Painters in Canada have trusted the 3M PPS System for more than 15 years to deliver excellent results for them and their customers,” says Rick Orser, General Manager, 3M Canada’s Automotive Aftermarket Division. “3M is committed to applying our science to help companies and individuals succeed every day. The new 3M PPS Series 2.0 Spray Cup System is a prime example of that commitment to innovation.” The new 3M PPS Series 2.0 Spray Cup System is now available in Canada through local 3M distributors.
