By now, you’ve probably noticed Sjolie sunless proudly offers Fuji Tanning Systems(woohoo), but with the numerous machine options, choosing the right one for you could be a bit tricky! Fuji Tanning systems is one of the first machine manufactures to introduce non-bleed applicators to sunless technicians. So, what is a Bleed vs. Non-Bleed applicator?
Bleed style applicator:
Bleed style applicators are the most common type of applicator offered by sunless equipment manufactures, and the original style of spray tanning applicator. A bleed style applicator is a gun that has continuous air flow, even when the trigger is released.
Non-Bleed style applicator:
A non-bleed style applicator has slowly grown in popularity within the sunless industry. A non-bleed style applicator allows the technician to use just air, or air and solution. When a technician releases the trigger, solution will first stop spraying and then the air.
Which applicator is better? Applicator choice will be based purely on technician preference. Many technicians will choose a Bleed style applicator for the ease of drying as you move from each section of the body during a spray session. A non-bleed style applicator would be great for those experienced technicians who do not focus on drying throughout their spray patterns.
