SCIGRIP is re-launching the patented Powercan dispensing system in compliance with the fluorinated greenhouse gasses regulation 517/2014.
Available in 100 ml or 200 ml sizes, the Powercan is said to deliver exact and controlled dosing for high viscosity and difficult to handle materials such as sealants, adhesives, fillers, lubricants and pastes.
No additional equipment is required as the Powercan works through a self-dispensing application method. The product features a ‘twist and lock system’ along with an over cap that inhibits the curing process and prevents nozzles from drying out. A sealed design is reported to ensure 0% contamination, 0% wastage and material can be dispensed in vertical, horizontal and upturned positions.
According to SCIGRIP, the Powercan is proving very popular in the automotive aftermarket and with the recent addition of a new contract filling service, new markets look set to open up.
The contract filling service allows companies to package their products in the Powercan dispenser. SCIGRIP is accepting minimum orders of 2000 cans of 100 ml or 200 ml sizes filled with any sealant, adhesive, filler or lubricant product.
SCIGRIP products currently available in the Powercan format include RTV851 silicone sealant and gasket maker, RTV853 high temperature silicone sealant and gasket maker, RTV854 grey oxime silicone sealant and EXP858 exhaust assembly paste.
