What is the difference between the Iwata LPH400LV & Hybrid Spray Guns?
Compare Iwata LPH400LV & Super Nova & HyBrid LVLP Guns - see below

What makes Iwata LPH400LV and Hybrid beter than German Green HVLP and Blue Guns? Patented Double Atomization = Lowest overspray levels of any spray gun on the market - Arguably Finest Finisher Available - Japanese Precision with Gun and Pattern Control = More Control - Made in Japan

Can base coat gold or orange setup spray clear Coats? The gold aircap can shoot clears about as well as any HVLP spray gun on the market. So it is good enough until you try the silver which will lay even flatter than any HVLP spray gun on the market. (purple does not shoot clear)

Can the silver clear coat aircap lay base coat? - Yes, the only problem it has is with metallics. While it is good enough for most jobs, the gold is better. However, for flat colors the Silver is perfectly fine.

LPH400LV - #1 for a long time. Logical Upgrade paths for aircaps, cups and parts - Great for Lower CFM Compressors will run on as little as 6cfm. Slightly Smaller Gun Handle great for MotorCycles w/ 400cc cup option.

Super Nova - Great upgrade choice if you like the LPH400LV and want a Wider Fan Pattern w/ the newest Ergo Dynamic gun , Excellent aerodynamics, and Best Control to speed ballance. Best choice if you have a large compressor - Standard Duty Body Shops. We suggest the Standard Super Nova Gold for Base over the Super Nova Hybrid Gold for more control and a softer spray.

HyBrid - Best Choice if you are a conventional user or need the Speed for Production Work or need larger coverage for trailers, aircraft, boats, etc.
We Suggest the HyBrid Silver for Clears for Body Shops and All Overs.
Standard Super Nova Silver for Home Users or Panel Painters

All Beat German Sa T*
