Iwata Custom Micron Airbrushes

The Custom Micron Series is for the elite professional who demands precise and accurate control of very detailed spraying. These airbrushes are the "best of the best", hand tested and adjusted by the world's leading airbrush technicians. Special machining processes along with meticulous hand-fitting of the parts creates an airbrush with superb atomization and incredible control of very detailed spraying. By removing the nozzle cap, these airbrushes will spray an entire range of stipple effects, from very fine to coarse textures.

The Custom Micron airbrushes feature a special "head system" which has all of its parts matched and tested together as a set. The head system is tested, adjusted, and retested until the spray characteristics are as perfect as an airbrush can be. Each head system is sold only as a set and is the key to the superb performance of a Custom Micron Airbrush. Maintenance and reliability is at its absolute highest level since spare head systems can be purchased to ensure the Custom Micron will always spray to its maximum potential.

New improvements to the Custom Micron Airbrush line:

  • New, slightly tilted, square trigger, which is more ergonomic, thus preventing trigger fatigue.
  • Cap dock on pre-set handle – a spring loaded threading which allows you to secure your crown cap to the back handle. No more lost crown caps!
  • Version 2 Iwata Custom Microns use the same needles, nozzles, & head systems as the Original.  They also perform & spray in the same unique way the Original Microns do – so no changes in atomization.
  • Most Original parts work on the new Version 2 Microns. However, the Chucking Guide and Trigger are updated and ARE NOT able to be retrofitted onto the Original Microns.
  • Version 2 parts are not backwards compatible, except for the cap dock, which will fit both Original and Version 2 Custom Microns.

For clean, dry air-flow.

Attaching directly onto the airbrush, the Iwata-Medea Pistol-Grip Filter is the final defense to deliver clean, dry air to your airbrush. Miniature in size, the super-fine, 5-micron filter element performs like a full-size filter separator.

The clear filter bowl allows a visual inspection of built-up moisture and is evacuated through a spring-loaded release valve - without taking the filter off the airbrush.

Comfortable in the hand, the Pistol-Grip Filter acts as a handle on the airbrush to relieve muscle tension.
