Who can design the most appealing unique finish on a SATA spray gun?

This is targeted at painting professionals, custom painters, airbrushers and other designers in the world: Who can create the most appealing surface finish for a SATAjet 4000 B spray gun?

Since 1998, SATA has periodically launched spray guns with exclusively designed surfaces. Since the beginning of 2010, we have the technology to transfer pictures - almost looking like a photo - on to the spray gun body.
"This possibility gives the design competition a special attraction", says Mr. Albrecht Kruse, President of SATA. "Who can claim to have a self-designed spray gun." The prize for the three best designs is such a spray gun.

It is worth participating: The three best designers will receive a SATAjet 4000 B DIGITALAll SATA high-performance spray guns which feature a digital pressure display integrated in the gun handle are classified by the term “DIGITAL”. What is pressure Indication required for? To ensure best possible colour matching, you should follow exactly the parameters recommended by the respective paint manufacturer. Among others, this includes the air inlet pressure on the spray gun. The more you deviate from the recommended pressure the more the actually achieved colour tone will deviate as well. Why should I use DIGITAL spray guns? DIGITAL paint spray guns from SATA measure the air inlet pressure on the spray gun electronically and thus accurately and also indicate it on the digital, easy-to-read display. With DIGITAL spray guns, you can be sure to reproduce precisely the required colour tone and thus avoid costly re-work. DIGITAL guns are particularly easy to handle, since they are 20% shorter and 20% lighter than the equivalent SATA spray guns with add-on manometer and micrometer. With DIGITAL spray guns, there is also no cumbersome disassembly of the manometer and the micrometer prior to cleaning of the spray gun in a gun washer machine.  Do the electronic components resist the rigors of daily use? If a few basic principles are followed, SATA DIGITAL guns are completely solvent-proof.  As a matter of fact, DIGTIAL guns are also shock-proof and explosion-proof.X» with their own design applied and will be invited to visit SATA. The rankings 4 - 10 will obtain a SATAjet 4000 B DIGITALAll SATA high-performance spray guns which feature a digital pressure display integrated in the gun handle are classified by the term “DIGITAL”. What is pressure Indication required for?

And possibly, the winner will be especially honoured: If the motive is suitable, it will be marketed by SATA as special spray gun version which means that it will be part of a wide range of sought-after SATA special editions. And the winner's name will be mentioned together with famous artists of this industry, such as Chip Foose or Leah Gall from the US who designed unique SATA special editions in the past.

Entry deadline for the drafts is April 30, 2012.

The competitive designs will be judged by a jury in terms of special originality and suitability to be printed on the spray gun.
