PININFARINA, the Italian design house renowned for some of history’s top car designs, has worked closely with ANEST IWATA to produce a gun that combines elegance with the ultimate in spray gun design.


An in-depth study by the UNIVERSITY of PAVIA, into perfect balance and optimal ergonomics, has been closely considered by PININFARINA designers and ANEST IWATA engineers to produce this state of the art spray gun.


The SUPERNOVA delivers a consistent droplet size when atomizing which, when combined with its flat and even fan pattern, helps reduce common issues such as boil and pin holing on HS clear coats. These problems occur as a result of too much clear coat in one area, caused by center heavy fan patterns.

We came up with a rating system that hopefully will give you an idea how they perform with each other when compared side by side. Except for each unit cost – we used stars to rate each spray gun – as they are already stars as is!
