Packing option simplifies reactive adhesive dispensing

KitPackers, an Ellsworth Adhesives company, has introduced a packaging option for customers seeking a simple system for mixing and dispensing small quantities of two component reactive chemical systems, especially adhesives and sealants.

The TwinPak Needle Pouch system has two chambers, separated by a burst-able seal, for the reactive components, a third chamber to aid in mixing, and a dispensing outlet for the attachment of a luer lock tip.

KitPackers, a contract packager specialising in reactive chemical systems, has introduced the TwinPak Needle Pouch system for customers requiring a simple, low cost package capable of delivering two component reactive chemicals mixed in highly variable mix ratios. The dispensing tip is an important innovation, giving the total system much greater dispensing accuracy. Another significant benefit is that users will waste much less product and spend far less time cleaning areas where the mixed adhesive or sealant has been misapplied.

For the standard package, the large compartment will have a capacity of approximately 55ml and the small compartment will have a capacity of up to 12ml. The total capacity for a 1:1 mix ratio product would be about 25ml, and the total capacity for a 4:1 mix ratio product would be 60ml. KitPackers can fill the package to order to the customer's specifications. Other size options are available with a special set-up charge.
