Fibermaq has supplied one Evolution gelcoat and two spray-up machine to Stringal-Hurner, a Brazilian manufacturer of composites equipment, including tanks, pipes and gas scrubbers, among others.

‘Particularly in the case of spray-up equipment, it is worth highlighting some important design enhancements, such as the protection in the piston area, which prevents the accumulation of dust, and the presence of gauge and display to indicate the passage of peroxide, tools that enhance the control of the operation,’ said Marcos Miotto, director of Stringal-Hurner, about the performance of the machines.

Stringal-Hurner has also been operating Fibermaq’s filament winding line since 2014. At the moment, the machine is being used to produce pipes of up to 1.20 m in diameter.
