- Being made in the U.S.A., BECCA delivery and factory support is quick and accurate.
- We sell through the Paint Distributor network nationwide. We are one step closer to our users by avoiding the Warehouse Distributor channel.

- Virtually all components and tools, including Adjustable Air and Fluid Flow Fittings are top-of-the-line, long life assemblies.
- Q: Why does BECCA have optional Filtration available on the Solvent Spray Gun Cleaners?
A: To make the solvent used in the BECCA unit last an incredibly long time before it needs to be discarded. The exclusive SolventWash system has two replaceable element cartridge filters that greatly extend the usable life of the solvent. By processing all of the solvent through a 75 micron and a 25 micron filter*, the paint contaminates are removed leaving the solvent an effective cleaning solution for weeks, and sometimes months in the typical shop environment.*Note: Dual Filtration is available on the S300A, S700M & S800A models. Single 75 micron filtration is available on the S100M and as a field installation on the S50M.
