TOUGH GUN TT4 Reamer on a TOUGH GUN Multi-Feed System

TOUGH GARD® Anti-Spatter Multi-Feed System

Interested in the ultimate solution to refilling the reservoirs on your nozzle cleaning stations? Feed up to 10 TOUGH GUN Reamer units from a single 5-gallon or 55-gallon drum of TOUGH GARD anti-spatter liquid with the TOUGH GARD multi-feed system. Find out more.


New 2021 TOUGH GARD anti-spatter liquid product family

TOUGH GARD Anti-Spatter Liquid

This ready-to-use water-soluble, non-toxic product creates a sacrificial surface that reduces spatter adhesion, and unlike oil-based anti-spatter solutions, won’t clog the sprayer. This prolongs the life of your consumables and minimizes downtime due to nozzle cleaning, which can help reduce your operating and maintenance costs. Learn more.
