Absolute Precision for the Elite Professional

The Custom Micron Series is for the elite professional who demands precise and accurate control of very detailed airbrushing. These airbrushes are reputed to be the best, the flagship of airbrushes, hand tested and adjusted by the world's leading airbrush technicians. Special machining processes, along with meticulous hand fitting of the parts, create an airbrush with superb atomisation and incredible control.

The Custom Micron airbrushes feature a special 'head system' which has all its parts matched and tested together as a set. It is tested, adjusted, and retested until the spray characteristics are as perfect as an airbrush can be. For optimum performance it is recommended the whole head is purchased, or if a new nozzle is required then it is sent in for our technical experts to fit.

The main features of the Custom Micron are:

  • Removable head assembly for easy cleaning
  • Easy roll top trigger
  • Body cut-out for easy adjustment of needle packing and lubrication
  • Pre-set adjustment handle
  • Crown Cap
  • Perfect balance
  • Ultra fine line performance

Custom Micron Head System - Superb Performance

The unique feature of the hand-matched head system means all of the parts in the head are assembled, tested and adjusted until the spray characteristics are as perfect as an airbrush can be. Available as a set, the head systems can be interchanged for maximum reliability and ultimate performance. Spare head systems can be purchased to ensure the Custom Micron will always spray to its fullest potential.

Hi-Control of Hi-Precision Work

This series features the ultimate in air control directly at the nozzle with Iwata's new Micro Air Control (MAC) Valve Technology. The Hi-Line Series doesn't just change air pressure instantly - it changes the way you airbrush.

Designed for artists who need extreme control of detailed spraying, this series uses larger diameter threads on the nozzle than the High Performance Series. This makes the nozzle much stronger when tightening it onto the airbrush and ensures better centering of the nozzle when it screws onto the airbrush body.

The Hi-Line Series is now made with Teflon needle packing, a dual-purpose cutaway, pre-set handle and one-piece auxiliary lever/needle chucking guide.

Micro Air Control (MAC) Valve

A breakthrough technology, the Micro Air Control (MAC) Valve enables infinite control of the airflow at the head of the airbrush, which is different than just regulating the air pressure at the compressor.

  • Lets users spray a coarse stippling effect to full atomisation with a quick turn
  • For fine line or detail work, it can be adjusted to create the optimum airflow for maximum control of the paint output
  • By fully opening the MAC Valve, the airbrush can quickly be cleaned during colour changes or for wide background spraying

High-Performance Assembly

Each nozzle is precisely made on the industry's most sophisticated machinery. They are hand tested to assure accurate control and fine atomization of the spray, and they are self-sealing, which eliminates the need for messy sealers. Unlike conventional brass nozzles, steel alloys are more durable and resist damage from harsh chemicals.

High-Precision, High-Detail Work

Renowned as the professional's workhorse, the popular High Performance Series has just been pumped up these inspired new features. For decades the Iwata HP series has been the professional workhorse, fulfilling the needs of those requiring outstanding control, superior atomisation, and fine consistent detail through to medium sized areas. The HP Series has proved itself with illustrators through to customisers with it's versatility and durabilty.

  • Dual-purpose, cutaway ands pre-set handle for easy clean up and precise control of paint flow
  • Teflon™ needle packing for automotive or other solvent-based paints
  • Larger threads on the nozzle offer a more secure fit and better centering of the nozzle
  • Redesigned tapered gravity-feed cups ensure easy clean up and more efficient paint flow
  • Single-piece auxiliary lever/needle-chucking guide provides easy assembly

Ultimate in Versatility, Reliability and Performance

The new and expanded Eclipse range of airbrushes feature Iwata quality, maximum versatility, and competitive pricing. These airbrushes were designed as multi-purpose, high paint flow, and high detail to cover a wide range of uses. They have exceeded their expectations as being a general purpose airbrush and have established a new standard for excellence where precise control of spray is required, as well as applying moderate to large amounts of spray to areas with heavier paints such as enamels, oils and acrylics.

Eclipse Nozzle/Head Assembly

The drop in hardened stainless steel nozzles are self centring for perfect alignment and quick and easy assembly. These nozzles afford high paint flow with ultimate control. With interchangeable heads, 0.35 or 0.5mm this makes the Eclipse a truly versatile airbrush, from fine to broad coverage.

The Iwata Revolution airbrushes have been released with the new airbrush user in mind: Quality, Performance and Value. They excel in all areas - the way they look, the way they handle, and especially the way they spray. All parts are made to Iwata exacting standards of quality, and can be removed for easy cleaning. The spray quality is superb for an airbrush of this price range and category, and one nozzle size does it all. An easily replaced Teflon needle packing, impervious to solvent based paints ensures these airbrushes are totally suitable for those using solvent based auto paints or hobby enamels.
