The Wooster Brush Co. has developed three specialty industrial paint applicators for the Richard Parks Corrosion Technologies paint cartridge coating system.
Wooster and RPCT partnered on development of the product, which was also designed and tested in cooperation with the U.S. Navy.
The RCPT paint delivery system allows two-component industrial coatings to be mixed and dispensed “as needed,” the manufacturer says. It is comprised of a manual or pneumatic cartridge dispenser, universal actuator, prepackaged disposable paint cartridges, static mixer, and broad assortment of applicators.
The system provides a totally closed-loop paint delivery method and has been used with more than 100 varieties of epoxies, polyurethanes, polyureas, acrylics, enamels, high solid non-skids, and chlorinated alkyds, the companies say.
Several specialty applicators for the system assist in tight access areas: a flex-hose cartridge delivery spray tip; two Wooster Flow-Thru Brushes (long- and short-handled); and a Wooster Tie-Down Applicator for ship aircraft tie-down preservation.
The tools are constructed of synthetic filaments and fabrics and will provide optimum performance in the industrial contexts where they will be used, Wooster says.
The RPCT coating system was developed for use in the marine and shipbuilding industries. It is also used to maintain rail cars, military vehicles and aircraft, bridges and wind energy turbines, according to the manufacturer.
