PGM Gel Coat Overview

Process Gear Mix system specifically designed for epoxy gel coat systems used in the manufacture of wind blades.

The system is formatted with a chassis that can be towed alongside the blade and the gel coat transferred in to ensure the material has a long open time & work life.

The A component pump is of the hardened type to cope with the abrasive fillers and the B component is the precision, low speed version due to the wide metering ratio and different material viscosities.

The system is monitored by precision flowmeters.
