In order to help you to improve the quality of your hand castings and to reduce the stress of short pot-lives, Covestro developed an innovative degassing and mixing device. By improving the mixing step, this device should allow you to optimize your hand castings with consistent quality and improve your productivity with reduced scrap rate.

The Baulé® quikmix device is able to mix and degas thanks to a combination of circular motions, designated as steps, of the containers:

  • Revolution of the containers
  • Rotation of each container

Many combinations of steps, with “on the fly” speed variations are possible to optimize the mixing and the degassing depending upon ratio and viscosities.
