Dispensers allow the safe application of adhesives and sealants. Designed to be robust, intuitive and reusable, these devices are essential for the correct application of two-component materials.
Mark Sargeson, Head Product Manager of Dispensers at medmix, expands: “We’ve already made progress improving the environmental impact of how two-component materials are packaged thanks to our MIXPAC™ ecopaCC collapsible foil cartridge. While ecopaCC cartridges are compatible with our existing dispensers, we wanted to provide a new applicator that would specifically complement the cartridge system, giving customers the chance to reduce their carbon footprint while promoting ease of use.”
A dedicated dispenser for a more sustainable cartridge
The ecopaCC Dispenser is specifically designed for the safe and secure attachment of ecopaCC cartridges, and is available in cordless, pneumatic and manual models. A slide and rotate barrel design along with a front plate docking feature enables quick and easy swapping of cartridges, minimizing downtime and increasing productivity. An integrated sleeve means that additional support sleeves are no longer required, so users don’t have to worry about losing or breaking them. The dispenser is manufactured from materials used in medmix’s proven COX™ dispenser range, ensuring robustness and a long service life. COX as well as ecopaCC are both brands of the medmix company.
It’s a perfect companion for the ecopaCC cartridge. In an internal lifecycle assessment (LCA) conducted by the ECODESIGN company, the ecopaCC cartridge was proven to provide a 77% reduction of greenhouse gas emissions when compared to a 600 ml 1:1 polypropylene solid cartridge .
Attaining environmental goals without compromise
With the combination of a lower climate change impacting cartridge and dedicated dispenser, users of adhesive and sealant now have access to a complete system that reduces carbon footprint without any compromise in usability.
“Businesses in the construction and industrial sectors are looking to attain specific environmental goals, while many are working to local legislation regarding emissions and waste. However, the industry is looking to reduce carbon footprint while safeguarding productivity, and the ecopaCC Dispenser is a good option for achieving this,” Mark says.
With the launch of a dedicated dispenser for the ecopaCC cartridge, medmix is giving its customers one fully compatible system to reduce CO2 as well as costs. Therefore, users of adhesives and sealants can now make a responsible decision about the tools they use every day.
