Graco M680™ Mortar Pump makes fast work of spraying cementitious
materials typically trowelled
MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 22, 2013--
Graco Inc. (NYSE:GGG), a leading manufacturer of fluid handling
equipment, recently introduced the new Graco M680™ Mortar Pump. The M680
is designed to significantly reduce the labor hours required for
projects such as resurfacing cement so that protective coatings or
linings can be applied. The Graco M680 speeds surface prep work by
allowing contractors to spray heavy materials onto the surface, rather
than trowel them on by hand. The Graco M680 is engineered to work with
abrasive materials such as cementitious coatings, epoxy-based mortars,
non-skid coatings, and polymers with fillers such as glass flake,
silica, or sand.
“The M680 Mortar Pump is great for contractors who hand-trowel because
it’s easy to use and it saves significant time,” said Eric Rennerfeldt,
Product Marketing Manager, Graco. “It reduces manual labor, and is easy
to clean and maintain as well.”
Contractors are taking notice of the significant savings the Graco M680
Mortar Pump delivers. “We cut our time in half and reduced our costs by
one third to resurface a lift station using the Graco M680 Mortar Pump,”
said Jeff White, owner of Commonwealth Epoxy Coatings in Newport News,
Va. “We also sprayed a new material we normally have to apply by hand.”
Designed with a high-velocity circulating flush, the Graco M680 is easy
to clean at the end of each workday. It is also CE-approved and approved
for use in environments with explosive atmospheres.
The Graco M680 Mortar Pump is ideal for projects in the water and
wastewater industry, mining, oil and gas, marine and offshore, building
and infrastructure, and general construction. For more information,
