Dilutec has gathered approximately one hundred people at its unit in Piracicaba in São Paulo, Brazil, to introduce the equipment line for composites moulding of BÜFAtec Spain, a Spanish subsidiary of the German group BÜFA.
Dilutec has been representing BÜFAtec Spain in Brazil since 2012. Marcos Pannellini, Commercial Manager of Dilutec, opened the event with a presentation about BÜFAtec and its portfolio. He also highlighted that the event was sponsored by Ashland, supplier of the resins distributed by Dilutec. Then, Dilutec explains, there was a practical demonstration of the 6-C and 12-C lines, respectively, gelcoat and spray-up machines. “These are easy to operate and, at the same time, very resistant and precise,” said Pannellini.
Attendees were shown the UNI 125 equipment produced by BÜFAtec designed to operate in three types of composite moulding processes: lamination (roll), spray-up (pistol) and injection (RTM or casting). “This is a very versatile machine and hence ideal for processors who work with multiple processes, such as shipyards and manufacturers of parts for the construction industry,” continued Pannellini.556162
Pannellini introduced the Diluclear Machine, a compound for heavy cleaning and machinery lubrication launched this year by Dilutec. “It can be used to clean equipment of automatic application and dispensing contaminated with paints, resins and gelcoats,” he said.
