The battery-powered PPG Semco® 285-B mixer is intended to mix two-part aerospace sealants, adhesives, and other potting compounds. It’s designed for use in the aerospace, electronics, or any industrial process requiring properly mixed materials. According to the company, the Semco 285-B mixer will blend all types of materials packaged in PPG Semkit® packages.
The unit is designed to offer the convenience of a lightweight, portable mixing solution without the hassle of an electric cord or air hose. The spindle assembly rotates the mixing rod at the proper speed, orientation, and torque while the operator strokes the cartridges vertically along the length of the mixing rod. PPG reports that the result is a more consistent, uniform mix from kit-to-kit, decreasing the likelihood of quality issues created when operators attempt to use non-approved methods of mixing sealants.
The mixer weighs approximately 8 lbs and is equipped with an ergonomically placed handle for ease of portability and use. The high torque motor is of heavy-duty construction to withstand the rigors of industrial use. Each unit comes with a 20-v lithium-ion battery, a charger base, and charger cable.
