Two-component dispenser works like a one-component system and features ergonomic design

The Mixpac system offers dispensing of 1:1, 2:1, 3:2, 4:1 and 10:1 volumetric ratios all within one dispenser. The ergonomically designed dispenser is said to provide a mechanical advantage over manual dispensers. The cartridge design has separate cylinders and a stronger attachment flange to allow for higher dispensing pressures. An interface with separated outlets between cartridge and mixer or cap eliminates the possibility of cross contamination and avoids plugged cartridges. This allows the user to reuse the cap for resealing the cartridge. An enhanced design of the static mixers allows for the storing, mixing and dispensing of higher viscosity adhesives. Higher dispensing pressures also allow for use of smaller mixers, promoting less waste. ConProTec
