There’s no easier way to mess up a project you’ve got lots of time in than having the finishing step go badly. When it comes to applying finish there’s no easier way to do it than with an HVLP system like Fuji’s Q5 Platinum. There’s lots of good finishing stuff going on here.

The Q5 system consists of a turbine and HVLP (high volume low pressure) gun. Getting your finishing air supply from a turbine instead of a compressor means cleaner air, and better control over the air flow. No oil or moisture in turbine-provided air flow. The Q5 is a 5-stage variable speed turbine, so you can fine tune the speed for the finish you’re spraying. The PSI output ranges from 6.5 – 9.5 PSI.

The turbine has been specifically designed to run quieter than similar units. (That’s the Q in Q5.) It also has heat dissipation built in, which will extend the motor lifespan.

Spraying with an HVLP gun means less overspray, so you’re saving money on finish. It’s ending up on your project instead of the surrounding environment.

Lots of good features stacking up to help you get the best possible finish on your projects.

    FUJI makes excellent equipment. I have the Apollo 5 VSR with the 7700-series spray gun and could not be happier. I have every cap, needle and nozzle offered for the gun ( 0.8 to 2.5). I have switched entirely to water born 2k finishes for spraying. I always hated the yellowing affect lacquer had on my projects. I use the 7700-spray gun with the 3M PPS system.
