Hand Pump Precisely and Repeatedly Dispenses Instant Adhesives
Loctite® CA Volumetric Hand Pump Prevents Over- and Under-Dosing Adhesives
ROCKY HILL, Conn. -- To improve quality and reduce waste associated with manufacturing processes that rely on hand-dispensed instant adhesives, Henkel Corporation has introduced the Loctite® CA Volumetric Hand Pump. Weighing less than 10 ounces, this hand-held dispenser ensures precise and repeated dispensing of Loctite® brand instant adhesives (cyanoacrylates).
Requiring no pneumatics, battery or electric power, the new hand pump offers six pre-set shot sizes and an adjustable range of 0.009 to 0.002 grams of adhesive. This volumetric dispenser ensures that the adhesive never over- or under-doses for an application, resulting in minimized adhesive waste and improved end-product quality. The sealed hand pump connection to the bottle stops air and moisture from entering the system, preventing the instant adhesive from solidifying and increasing its working life.
The Loctite® CA Volumetric Hand Pump is designed to dispense from either 20-gram or 1-ounce bottles of Loctite® instant adhesives. The pump's easy-pull trigger and lightweight, ergonomic design minimize hand fatigue experienced during priming and dispensing. The unit measures 7.5 x 7.75 x 2.5 inches and weighs just 282 grams.
