Nozzles play a key role in adhesive dispense. Here’s why.
When it comes to nozzles for adhesive dispense there is a huge range of different types available. And each type has its own unique function.
For 2 component adhesives, the nozzle plays a key role in ensuring that the components are mixed correctly. Without a static mix nozzle for 2 component adhesives, there is no way of guaranteeing that the part A and part B components are mixed together. Issues caused by unmixed components are numerous, however, the most significant being that; if the 2K adhesive is not correctly mixed it will not cure. This demonstrates the critical importance of nozzles in 2 component adhesive dispense. Within this category, there are many different types of mix nozzles and it is important to ensure that the materials the nozzle is constructed from are compatible with the adhesive that is being dispensed.
When it comes to single component adhesives there is a vast array of nozzles designed to make life simpler for the operator.
