Graco Highlights FRP Gel Coat Systems for Composite Manufacturing

System optimized for ratio stability, leading to high quality end products

CAPTION: The Graco RS Gel Coat Gun is lightweight, ergonomic, designed for tool-less operation and fast, easy maintenance as well. It is equipped with Air Assist Containment (AAC) technology. AAC wraps the spray pattern in a containment shield of air – preventing atomized droplets from escaping the spray pattern. Less overspray reduces material waste and creates a healthier work area for employees.

Graco (NYSE:GGG), a world leader in fluid handling products and systems, announces the availability of its flexible and precise fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP) gel coat systems, ideal for molded fiber-reinforced plastics such as those used in automotive applications. Graco’s gel coat system proportioner offers precise on-ratio dispensing, while the company’s RS gel coat gun offers a superior spray pattern and ease of maintenance.

Given the importance of on-ratio dispensing to consistent final product curing, Graco’s precise gel coat system, optimized for ratio stability and control, ensures the highest quality end products with minimized waste. The proportioner’s industry-proven components and long-lasting seals lead to reduced maintenance, while the adjustable-ratio catalyst pump offers easy, tool-free adjustment, increasing overall uptime.

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 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 reduces material waste and creates a healthier environment for operators.

Additionally, the gun’s quick-disconnect front end reduces maintenance time, while the unique needle clamp design prevents operators from needing to adjust needle settings after routine maintenance. Improved ease of maintenance leads to increased uptime over competing technology.
