Meter/mix systems vary immensely from application to application. Adhesive or sealant resin formulations can vary as well—by chemistry, viscosity, filler content, handling time, and moisture sensitivity, as well as other critical performance factors engineered by the material supplier.
Manufacturers are demanding increasingly robust and cost-effective solutions when facing challenges in bonding, potting, and form-in-place gaskets. As a result, two-part fluids are increasingly being specified to provide higher quality, consistency and endurance.
As the market continues to push the production of lighter, stronger, and more chemical-resistant epoxies, polyurethanes, and silicones, the importance of using accurate metering and dispensing equipment grows as well.
