Graco Launches Patented RAC X Low Pressure SwitchTips

Features SmartTip™ Technology in 46 sizes for the industry’s best finish

MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 23, 2018-- Graco Inc. (NYSE:GGG), a leading manufacturer of fluid handling equipment, is pleased to introduce the RAC X™ LP SwitchTips™. Building on the overwhelming success of the 2017 Fine Finish Low Pressure (FF LP) tip and its significant low pressure benefits for contractors worldwide, Graco is expanding this offering with new tips for large surface and high-production applications. The Low Pressure (RAC X LP) tips spray large projects at up to 50 percent lower pressure than standard tips, doubling the life of the tips and allowing for less overspray, reduced prep and clean-up time, and easier pattern overlap.

RAC X LP tips are made with SmartTip Technology and are designed to work with Graco’s exclusive SmartControl™ Pressure Management System to deliver steady pressure without fluctuations at the lowest airless spray pressure. The tips are designed to reduce the energy required to completely atomize paints, stains and other materials at all airless spraying pressures – and their soft spray fan pattern makes it easy to apply any material to any surface for the industry’s best finish.

Mark Andersen, Graco’s Contractor Equipment Division Global Product Marketing Manager, said “Our 2017 FF LP tip launch was a significant breakthrough for fine finish projects. The new RAC X LP tip delivers the same low pressure benefits for every job. We now have a complete range of low pressure tip sizes that deliver the longest tip life, a great finish and low overspray for any application.”

RAC X LP tips with SmartTip Technology are now available in 46 sizes for small, medium, large surface and high-production applications – and can be used with lacquer, varnish, stain, enamel, oil base paints, and latex primers and paints.
