Multi-Shaft Mixers capable of bulk agitation, high-speed powder wet-out and efficient heat transfer are ideal equipment for floor coatings based on epoxy, urethane, acrylic or hybrid chemistries.

Several configurations of Multi-Shaft Mixers are available, varying in agitator design, mixing intensity, vacuum capability, portability, and other characteristics. In selecting the appropriate mixer features that will best serve a particular formulation, one must take into account the coating’s viscosity profile during processing, shear requirement and most practical method of ingredient addition.
