GlasCraft Inc. (Indianapolis, Ind.) has introduced its new Formula dispensing gun, specifically designed for applications that require vinyl ester and polyester formulations. It has a more powerful, patented double air piston and special hardened valves that allow for easy and reliable dispensing of heavy filled materials at high volume while maintaining an accurate and controlled spray pattern, says the company. During tests, the gun's patented multi-port impingement design reportedly produces very low levels of styrene emission.
