PPG introduces heavy-duty, high volume mixers for high viscosity chemicals
PPG has expanded its SEMCO® high volume automated mixer line with two new heavy-duty mixers for precision mixing of higher viscosity, multicomponent adhesives, sealants and other chemicals in SEMKIT® packages. The Semco model 1088HD mixer and Semco 1188HD mixer are equipped with robust motors to thoroughly mix high viscosity aerospace adhesives, while the Semco 1188HD mixer has added capability for use in potentially volatile and corrosive environments, like those encountered by aircraft carrier maintenance operations.

PPG video describes benefits of aerospace sealant caps for fuel tank fasteners
A new video by PPG describes the quality, time-saving and waste-reducing benefits of dome-sealing aircraft fuel tank fasteners with PRC® seal caps instead of extruded wet sealant. The PPG seal caps are formed and molded from PRC or PRO-SEAL™ aerospace sealant, and then cured to form a flexible rubber shell. The caps can also be supplied prefilled by PPG with the same sealant so they arrive at the customer’s site ready to dome-seal fasteners, eliminating all sealant mixing and tooling.
