Graco Inc. (North Canton, OH, US) has introduced its new flexible and precise fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP) gel coat system, designed for molded fiber-reinforced plastics such as those used in automotive applications. Graco’s gel coat system proportioner offers what is said to be precise, on-ratio dispensing, while the company’s RS gel coat gun offers an even and consistent spray pattern and easy maintenance. Features include good ratio stability and control, long-lasting seals and an adjustable-ratio catalyst pump. The Graco RS gel coat gun is said to be as much as 44% lighter than competing gun technologies, leading to better handling and spraying control for operators. The gun also delivers a good spray pattern due to its Air Assist Containment (AAC) technology. The AAC technology wraps its spray in a containing shield of air, preventing atomized droplets from escaping the spray pattern. The resulting decrease in overspray reduces material waste and creates a healthier environment for operators. Additionally, the gun’s quick-disconnect front end reduces maintenance time, while the needle-clamp design prevents operators from having to adjust needle settings after routine maintenance.
