If you work in concrete, masonry or any other construction industry that requires mixing component materials, there is good news on the horizon. Sulzer – the Swiss machine company that has been in business for almost two centuries – announced that its Mixpac DB 2K cordless dispenser will launch right here on Gluegun.com in March 2014. That has gotten us pretty excited.
You already know Sulzer's reputation as a global leader in mixing and dispensing guns. In fact, the engineers who maintain the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco use Sulzer guns to ensure one of the West's most iconic (and well-traveled) pieces of architecture stays in tip-top condition. The reason we are excited about the Mixpac DB 2K is that it is a feat of mechanical engineering, and is about to make mortaring and other adhesive bonding a whole lot easier. Heck, this gun makes it enjoyable.
The DB 2K gun has so much going for it, it is hard to know where to begin. A resealable interface, a rigid design, a wide range of mixers so you can customize for any job, precise metering to make sure your mix ratio stays constant and valve pistons to ensure no air bubbles creep into the work – and we are just scratching the surface.
There are several different systems available for the gun, but we will dive into those in later posts. For now, all you need to know is that there is not a single adhesive bonding job you can contract for that this gun will not be able to tackle. It works with a variety of mix nozzles that ensure you have the right flow and application for any job (you can check out Gluegun.com's wide selection of Sulzer Mixpac Static Mixers here) and did we mention it is super ergonomic, so it even feels nice in the hand? For those of you that have spent many long hours in the sun wielding a mixer gun on a huge project (here's looking at you, intrepid public employees of San Francisco County) you know how important it is not to have to contend with hand cramps on top of everything else.
There is too much great information about the new Mixpac DB 2K to fit into a single post about this new gun, so don't hesitate to navigate over to Sulzer's web site to find product information, watch videos of demonstrations and more.
