ExactaBlend AGP provides on-ratio mixing of plural-component sealants
and adhesives for use in curtainwall, insulating glass and other
MINNEAPOLIS, Jun 24, 2013 (BUSINESS WIRE) --Graco Inc. (NYSE:GGG) announced today that it is introducing the
ExactaBlend™ AGP Advanced Glazing Proportioner. The ExactaBlend AGP is
designed to solve the inherent challenges of on-ratio mixing for
silicones that are often used in manufacturing curtainwall and
insulating glass. The ExactaBlend AGP system provides optimal mixing and
on-ratio proportioning capabilities that increase quality assurance of
the final product. The system’s real-time ratio assurance also reduces
material waste because the system automatically shuts down if off-ratio
“Accurate mixing of plural-component adhesive materials is vital in the
creation of insulating glass units and curtainwall,” said Mike Cryer,
Graco Product Marketing Manager. “Obtaining on-ratio mixing and
dispensing for these applications has long proven to be a difficult
industry challenge but the ExactaBlend AGP offers ratio assurance and is
an affordable, high quality solution that offers attractive savings to
the end user.”
In addition to the cost reduction and quality assurance benefits of the
system, the ExactaBlend AGP is also very easy to operate. Compared to
traditional proportioners with mechanical linkage and rocker arms, the
unit’s electronic controls remove the guesswork from ratio setting and
maintenance. The controls provide simple set up of ratios and also allow
operators to make ratio changes on the fly.
With ExactaBlend’s optional data reporting capabilities, window
manufacturers can track key information such as ratio, material usage,
flow rate, alarm events and system errors. This information can be
gathered via USB data download and used to streamline the production
process and increase effectiveness of the line.
