- Dispenses two-component 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Structural Adhesives
- Pneumatically powered systems are ideal for large volume dispensing and higher throughput
- Ensures correct mix ratio during dispensing, no need to weigh components
- Minimizes waste and mess associated with hand mixing
- Pistol grip provides comfortable handling and precise control
- Reduces hand fatigue and repetitive motion injuries
- Applicator provides a continuous and consistent sized bead of adhesive
3M™ Scotch-Weld™ EPX™ Pneumatic Applicators are used to dispense two-component 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Structural Adhesives packaged in Duo-Pak (DP) cartridges. There are a variety of pneumatic applicators available to match the needs of your manufacturing process.
Large Capacity, Precise Application
Our EPX, or Exact Proportion mixer makes dispensing the adhesive clean, easy and with minimal waste. Air pressure drives the dual pistons directly into the Duo-Pak cartridge, applying equal pressure and feeding the adhesive into the mixing nozzle (sold separately). The mixing nozzle mixes the two-part compound and dispenses activated adhesive. Our ergonomically designed pistol grip provides comfortable handling and precise control.
Mixes as it Dispenses, Minimizing Material Waste
3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Pneumatic Applicators ensure accurate measurement, thorough mixing and precise placement of material. Other advantages include improved mixing ratio accuracy with no hand mixing required and efficient use of adhesive. Industries where Pneumatic Applicators are used include general industrial, construction, sporting goods, solar energy, wind energy, composites, electronics, military, transportation and aerospace.
3M Advanced Adhesive Systems
Designers and engineers increasingly rely on adhesives for improved end-use performance, greater design flexibility and more efficiency in putting their products together. Two-part room-temperature-curing epoxy, urethane and acrylic adhesives formulated and packaged in duo-pak cartridges meet the needs of a wide variety of construction, MRO, and industrial applications. In addition to advanced formulations for reliability and versatility, we provide application systems like the EPX Pneumatic Applicator to facilitate production speed and ergonomics.
