Key to compatibility coding:
** Iwata LVLP guns are only compatible when connected to a compressor by an Iwata braided hose (rather than vinyl), due to the wider hose bore allowing the required air flow.   = Recommended pairing of airbrush and compressor, depending on type of application and pressure required. *
  = Compatible, depending on type of application and pressure required. *
  = Only at low pressures for makeup or tanning or other applications at low pressures. *
  = Not compatible or not recommended. *
* All figures and recommendations are a guide only. Please call for specific advice.

UK Warranty on Neo Air and Iwata Studio Series Compressors

The UK warranty on Iwata Studio Series compressors or Neo Air for Iwata compressors, whether bought separately or at the same time as an Iwata airbrush as system or kit, is the standard one year warranty. Please refer to the Iwata airbrush warranty for information on extended warranties on airbrushes.

Iwata-Medea Plc. and The Airbrush Company Ltd. warrant to the original purchaser that they will repair or replace, at their option, without charge, any part of the Iwata Studio Series Compressor found to be defective in factory material or workmanship within one year from the date of original purchase. Warranty service will be provided only at Iwata-Medea authorised service centres (The Airbrush Company Ltd in the UK). You must pay all charges for shipping and transporting your Iwata compressor to and from these service facilities. Any material that is shipped to Medea or their service centre without prior authorisation may not be accepted.

This warranty does not cover your Iwata Studio Series Compressor if it has been:

  1. Subjected to negligence or misuse.
  2. Operated or maintained contrary to our instructions.
  3. Damaged by fire, corrosion, moisture or any other occurrence beyond our control.
  4. Damaged in transit to the service centre due to inadequate packaging.
  5. Altered or fitted with parts incorrectly by you or any party other than an Iwata-Medea authorised service centre.
  6. Used with the wrong voltage/frequency power supply or with a power supply converter.

Iwata-Medea will not be responsible for damage to persons or property, commercial loss or any other incidental or consequential damage caused by a defective compressor. However, some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations may not apply to you.

All implied warranties, including any warranty of merchantability or fitness are limited to the duration of this written warranty. However, some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you.

Please contact the Airbrush Company before returning an airbrush or compressor for the appropriate procedure for warranty repairs.
