It is vital to ensure that the correct spray gun is selected, to realise the maximum potential properties of the coating being applied. Kortec supply the full spectrum from conventional/HVLP gravity or suction-fed guns, through air-assisted airless (AAA) and standard airless units to specialist equipment including plural mixing and automatic installations. Brands commonly used are Binks, Wagner, DeVilbiss and Prona.
The choice of pump equipment has a significant effect on the material usage and overall efficiency of coating application. There are many technologies available to choose from, including diaphragm, air-assisted airless (AAA) and standard airless pumps. The experience we have in this area provides critical help in selecting the optimum kit for the requirement. These main types also have multiple variations in capacity, and features such as cart or drum-mounted, plus potential for specific technical additions like electrostatic or plural mixing equipment. Kortec have supply and service arrangements for Binks, Graco, Q-tech and Tritech pumps.
Respiratory equipment is an important part of any coating application process, as almost all coatings contain some potentially hazardous substances. The numerous levels of protection available can make it difficult to identify what is actually required in your specific circumstances and our team are always ready to assist with this.
The potential solutions range from disposable masks through the filter-replacement type, to full air-fed or battery powered options. Kortec supply products from brands including Honeywell/Willson, 3M and Duetta.
Having the right spraying environment for your application work is essential to achieving the optimum finish and efficiency from a coating system. Our experience in recommending and managing installations gives assurance that an excellent solution can be delivered whatever the situation; from industrial standard galvanised-sheet enclosures to full automotive-standard booths. We also supply innovative alternatives, such as retractable units which optimise space.
Heating systems can utilise warm air, gas or UV/infra-red methods in a variety of locations such as drying rooms, conveyor lines or curing areas. They can significantly impact curing/handling times, and ultimately productivity and the finish delivered. Heating options should be considered when making any changes to a coating process, and our expertise means we can advise on the best combination for any requirement.
Kortec are approved UK suppliers for the Bruest ATEX certified gas thermocatalytic heaters.
Many other items are required to fully equip an effective application and curing area, including drying racks, spray tables, hanging tracks, filtration, etc. There is an extensive range available and advising on these is a standard part of our service.
Flushing - changing to & from Waterbased Material
When changing your equipment from solvent- to water-based coatings or vice versa, it's essential to remove all contamination - we have provided a brief summary of the process required to ensure this is achieved.
