Fibermaq Develops Accessories for Spray-up and Gelcoat Machines

28 June 2016

Fibermaq has developed three accessories for spray-up and gelcoat machines – own and other brands.

The first is a filter installed between the outlet of the peroxide (MEKP) packaging and the pump that pushes the material up to the gun. “Any impurities in the MEKP may cause problems in the sealing and, as a result, a peroxide failure,” explains Christian de Andrade, Director of Fibermaq.

Also in relation to MEKP, the company launched a flowmeter for the composites moulders. The accessory allows the moulder check whether or not the peroxide is mixed with resin and gelcoat. “The flowmeter shows if the MEKP is being pumped and alerts the operator to a problem in the system, allowing the actions to be taken in time.”

Finally, Fibermaq changed the filtering system of the tube connected to the resin and gelcoat packaging. With threaded fitting, rather than screw, and smaller mesh than the previously used, the filter is much more efficient.
