COATINGS: Sulzer’s dual cartridge dispensing system offers easy abrasion resistance

SWITZERLAND – Sulzer Mixpac USA, is the source for the MixCoat cartridge-based system that applies abrasion-resistant coatings on pipes and transportation equipment, bores, walkways, and conveyor equipment.

Sulzer’s MixCoat spray system for applying abrasion-resistant coatings is ideal for one-handed operation.

The MixCoat spray model used for mining operations is a portable pneumatic dispensing system designed for small volume applications, touch-up, and repairs. It is a great choice for dirty and dusty mining environments. The MixCoat system is extremely lightweight meaning it is quick and easy to set up, clean up and break down, so users lose very little time for the maintenance cycle.

The system works well 100% solid epoxies and fast-set polyurethanes and polyureas, all of which are difficult to apply. It also works well with new abrasion-resistant specialty coatings, including those with glass flake additives. Users can select 1:1, 2:1, 3:1 and 4:1 ratios. Simply move the plunger.

Paired with the unique DPS spray dispenser for maintenance and repair projects, the complete MixCoat spray system includes cartridges containing the packaged coating material, a mixer that ensures consistent coating mix, and the pneumatic operated spray. With a lightweight, ergonomic design, the MixCoat spray is ideal for one-handed use with all the dials and settings located right on the handle, eliminating the need for additional hoses and gauges.

Also available for mining applications is the MixCoat manual model, which is used for applying high solids epoxies and touchup. The manual option offers efficient, clean and cost optimized repair work with less waste. The cartridge-based system features excellent mixing performance and improved ratio control, without the need for mixing equipment. Users no longer need to worry about pot life. Cartridges are available for 1:1, 2:1, 3:1 and 4:1 ratios, ranging from 1,500 mL to 940 mL.
