320 Small Batch Epoxy Scale
WEST SYSTEM® recently introduced a new scale configured especially for measuring epoxy in very small amounts. The new 320 Small Batch Epoxy Scale accurately measures the correct ratio of resin and hardener for batches smaller than one 300 Mini Pump stroke. It allows for the accurate dispensing of epoxy resin and hardener in a range from 4.4 fl oz down to just a few drops of mixed product.
The scale was designed for those project requiring small batches of epoxy. Model builders, patternmakers, lure makers, artists, and hobbyists will find it particularly helpful. The scale can also be used to confirm the accuracy of your 300 Mini Pumps and to add pigments or other additives consistently.
The scales dimensions of 5″ X 3″ X ¾” make it highly portable. It is sturdily built, yet sensitive enough to measure as little as .1 gram (a standard paperclip weighs .4 gram). It is battery operated and features an LCD readout display.
Complete operating and epoxy measuring instructions are imprinted under the lid of the scale Simple recalibration instructions are supplied within the carton. A full two-year repair or replacement, limited warranty certificate is also provided.
The scale is presented as part of a kit consisting of dispensing bottles, 3¼ oz. and 1 oz plastic cups, mixing sticks and pipe cleaners. The kit can be purchased at your local WEST SYSTEM dealer.
303 and 305 High-Capacity Positive Displacement Pumps
Updated Spring 2016
Gougeon Brothers, Inc. has introduced high-volume epoxy pumps that are extremely robust and dispense epoxy faster than any pump the company has ever offered. The 303 and 305 Positive Displacement Pumps work by trapping a fixed amount of resin and hardener, then forcing (displacing) that trapped volume into the discharge pipe or system. The mechanics of this setup mean that increases in resin viscosity due to temperature changes will not slow dispensing speeds. Positive latching lids help prevent contamination of resins and hardeners.
The new 303 Positive Displacement Pump is calibrated for WEST SYSTEM 3:1 ratio epoxies (105 Resin with 207 Special Clear Hardener or 209 Extra Slow Hardener) and is easily identified with a red base. The new 305 Positive Displacement Pump is calibrated for 5:1 ratio epoxies (105 Resin with 205 Fast Hardener or 206 Slow Hardener) and has a blue base.
Positive Displacement Pumps are also available with drum fittings. These connect directly to WEST SYSTEM Resin and Hardener drums so there is no need to decant materials. This setup conveniently streamlines the metering process for high-volume users, saving both time and money.
