Art No: FK-FOM550-GUN – Flake King FOM550 Dry Metal Flake Mini Gun

This Flake King 550 Dry Metal Flake Mini Gun is the smaller version of the 1000 Gun and is capable of running off an airbrush compressor. It enables you to apply your clear coat with your airbrush and then use the 550 Mini Gun to apply the dry metal flake.

The Flake King 550 has been designed for applying dry metal flake efficiently. It’s quick and easy to use. Just add flake, open the flake valve, set the pressure and you’re ready to go.

It is supplied with a nozzle for easier blending of flake passes and also supplied with an 1/4″ to 1/8″ adaptor to fit to a standard airbrush airline.

It is ideal for smaller projects – bowling pins, skateboard decks, helmets, bicycle and motorcycle frames.

Why apply the Metal Flake dry?

  • Minimizes the amount of flake you use
  • Reduces the volume of catalysed clear that you use
  • Reduces the risk of clear coat failure & potential “sagging” of flake and clear
  • Increases speed significantly – we’re talking by days for a large job
  • Improves the clean-up process – because the flake is dry when applied, it simply brushes up/off
  • Reduces risk of cross contamination of future paint jobs
  • Because you have a dry metal flake gun, there is no longer flake in your clear coat gun again reducing the risk of flake ending up in future paint jobs

There are multiple ways to apply the flake – you can set the barrel to be self-levelling or rigid to suit your spraying style. The barrel is removable so you can blow your flake into the clear coat either from the gun handle or by simply turning the flake valve off.

If you’re in the market for a dry metal flake applicator that doesn’t just spit flake out randomly then you’ve come to the right place. This gun doesn’t rely on pick up tubes that can cause flake “flurries” it truly agitates the flake and draws it out consistently giving you professional results.
