gelcomix: gelcoat application system

Surface protection of composites done well

The gelcomix has been especially developed for processing highly thixotropic materials onto the untreated surfaces of rotor blades. Output rates of up to 5 l/min can be achieved with gear metering pumps, which are also suitable for abrasive fillers. Depending on the configuration, the following pumps can be used for the B component, also magneti- cally coupled: axial piston pumps, radial piston pumps or gear pumps. The material is supplied from material pressure vessels that are installed on the chassis of this mobile system. With gelcomix technology, materials with viscosities of up to the flow limit can not only be applied but the mixing ratios are also adjustable within a wide range.
