Aldridge, UK - Chemique Adhesives and Sealants Ltd has developed a portable spray (PSS) and portable bead system (PBS) for application of its Solfre2 polyurethane adhesives.
The equipment offers a low-cost start-up solution to small-volume Solfre2 users, said the UK company, in a 20 Nov statement.
"These systems mean anyone can use Solfre2 two-component polyurethane in the production process, achieving the benefits these adhesives offer," said Tony McMullen, commercial director," in the statement.
He added that the low cost allows end users to integrate the equipment into their production without investing heavily in an automated line.
Chemique, which calls itself a pioneer in solvent-free PU adhesives, is aiming the systems at adhesive users in panel manufacturing.
Both compact systems are suitable for users who are starting up, have a single gun, or are low- and mid-volume users.
Chemique describes the PSS as "extremely versatile," and said it can act as a dispensing device for use with hard rollers or with a spray gun for a quicker, lower-weight coating of adhesive.
Adjustable heads on the PSS guns mean that adhesive can be applied to irregular and flat surfaces, since this allows spraying in either a round or flat pattern.
PSS and PBS consist of a simple control panel, a two-component spray/ bead gun, an electrically driven gear pump and pressure feed container to flush the system after use.
