Gel Tank is compact equipment for the external and simultaneous application of gelcoat and peroxide.

Fibermaq, a Brazilian manufacturer of composite molding machinery, has launched Gel Tank equipment for the external and simultaneous application of gelcoat and peroxide.

The equipment is suitable for manufacturers of composite parts who use spray guns with an inverted cup, which can only store up to 500 ml. Gel Tank has a stainless steel pressure tank that stores up to 15 liters of gelcoat.

‘In addition to not having to constantly stop the service to refill the spray gun, with Gel Tank, molders will no longer experience clogging problems, as the gelcoat and peroxide are mixed externally.’ said Christian de Andrade, director of Fibermaq. ‘The equipment also eliminates expenses with thinner, used for cleaning the spray gun at each service interruption.’

The machine comes with a 4 mm nozzle, a 200 ml peroxide reservoir, an spray gun weighing 737 g and a transport cart.
