Polymix 1000/2000 Overview

The PolyMix 1000/2000 systems were developed to handle the viscous resins used to bond large composite structures. With the piston metering systems excessive work was put into the material during metering, reducing the open time and therefore compromising the process.

2KM resolved this issue by utilising progressive cavity feeding system linked to large capacity gear pumps rotating at a low speed.

This format of machine enables the high flow rate of viscous adhesives with very little temperature increase.
