automatic PDMS mixer

An automatic mixer for your PDMS

This automatic mixer is designed for rapid degassing and mixing of polymers such as PDMS. This planetary mixer enables reproducible and uniform mixing of PDMS without contamination and allows a “PDMS/reticulating agent” ratio of up to 1:40.

The Elveflow team selected this mixing equipment for its robustness, quality and superior mixing capabilities compared with other planetary mixers.

How it works

This mixer works by spinning a high-speed mixing arm in one direction while the basket rotates in the opposite direction. It is this combination of forces along different planes which enables efficient mixing.

Performance

What materials can it mix?

The mixer can be used for 1 and 2 part silicons, polyurethanes, polysulfides, acrylics and a wide range of other materials such as PDMS. Since the mixer has no mixing components to clean (it works with disposable cups), all risk of contamination is avoided when working with colour master batches, pharmaceutical products and other sensitive materials. Both re-usable and less expensive disposable cups (recommended especially when cross-contamination is a major issue) are available.

How much can it mix?

The maximum batch weight that can be mixed is 100 grams, (150g total, including the mixing cup, lid, and holder). Cups are used with holders that have weights designed to maintain the balance of the machine. Various cup sizes are available (10, 20, 40, 60 and 100 grams) to fit your needs and minimize material waste by tailoring the actual batch size to the quantity you need rather than what the mixer requires.
