Magnum Venus Plastech (MVP, Kent, Wash.) unveiled at JEC Europe 2013 its new external mix gun, which is said to offer “game-changing features.” The Talon-X is engineered to provide long-lasting durability and significantly fewer wear points, translating to fewer job delays and consistent resin flow. The gun is reportedly lightweight and easy to handle; it provides a custom fit with ergonomic inserts and “applied fulcrum force,” which is said to reduce operator fatigue. The mix gun also benefits from limited part count, which makes servicing easier; advanced valve technology for dynamic discharge; rapid access design; and advanced precision pattern control. It also has an AirCat monovalve (one valve with two functions that simultaneously actuate air and the catalyst). MVP stresses that the gun has a superior thrust valve design, which includes a high-performance floating ceramic ball that provides a constantly changing wear surface, plus a carbide rod and an upper seal and rod that are exposed to less pressure. The upper seal and entire cartridge are reportedly easy to remove.
