Manufacturers and contractors active in the protective coatings industry have long searched for a portable material sprayer that provides the power and versatility necessary to spray high solids coatings. The Merkur X48 and X72 pack up to 7200 psi (500 bar) of spraying muscle into a unit weighing just 99 pounds (45 kg). Portability plus the ability to handle longer hose lengths than traditional sprayers makes it the ideal solution for even the toughest protective coatings. While the Merkur is much smaller than traditional spray units, little is sacrificed in terms of pressure; they are capable of handling a variety of high solids coating materials.
