Sprayer Offers Alternative to Hand Mixing

Thursday, September 16, 2010

Comment | More

Graco Inc. has introduced a new proportioner to its line of plural-component sprayers. The Graco XP70 Plural-Component Sprayer is designed to pump, mix and atomize high-viscosity, faster-curing materials with superior results.

The system handles environmentally friendly high solids coatings with little or no solvent, hybrid polyurethanes, epoxies, very high solids coatings (with up to 100% solids content), and materials requiring heat.

The Graco XP70 is suitable for applying coatings to wind energy towers, tanks, pipes, water towers, railcars, bridges, ships and structural steel, as well as applications in wastewater treatment, manhole and sewer reconditioning, and secondary containment.

Less Waste, Less Solvent

"The Graco XP70 is a smart alternative to hand-mixing or hot-potting," says Doug Brady, director of sales and marketing for Graco's Applied Fluids Technology Division.

Unlike hand mixing, where unused mixed material is usually thrown away at the end of the day, the sprayer mixes only as much material as is needed for the job at hand. The unit also uses less clean-up solvent, because only the static mix tube and hose to the gun need to be flushed.

The Graco XP70 is rated at 7250 psi (500 bar) to provide the high-pressure performance required for spraying high-solids coatings and viscous materials at longer hose lengths, the company says.

Graco has developed an online ROI calculator for operators to determine their savings with the Graco XP70 Sprayer. To use the tool or to learn more, visit www.graco.com/xp70. To locate a Graco distributor, call 877-844-7226.
