Graco (North Canton, OH, US) has introduced the Graco RS, a new flexible and precise composite gel coat system, designed specifically for use in automotive applications. Graco’s gel coat system proportioner offers on-ratio dispensing, while the company’s RS gel coat gun offers superior spray pattern and ease of maintenance. The Graco RS gel coat gun is up to 44% lighter than competing gun technologies, leading to better handling and spraying control for operators. The gun also delivers what Graco says is a superior spray pattern due to its Air Assist Containment (AAC) technology. The AAC technology wraps spray in a containing shield of air, preventing atomized droplets from escaping the spray pattern. The resulting decrease in overspray, says Graco, reduces material waste and creates a healthier environment for operators. Additionally, the gun’s quick-disconnect front end reduces maintenance, while the needle clamp design is said to prevent operators from needing to adjust needle settings after routine maintenance.
