Hot melt adhesive speeds precast form bonding

Suited for bonding reveal, chamfer, form liners, weld plates and structural and other architectural elements in all types of precast concrete forms, the new Power Adhesive hot melt system consists of Casttec adhesive, applied in dots, beads or a spray pattern using one of three heavy-duty TEC glue guns. Its replaces commonly used double-sided tape, solvent-based adhesives, bolting, nailing, silicon or other fastening systems; Casttec bonds to all material types common in the industry including wood, foam, most plastics and some metals.

Oil shear coupler brake

Posistop oil shear coupler brake, ideal replacement for electric brakes often found mounted on the back of a special brake motor, mounts to the working end of a standard C-face motor eliminating the need for a special brake motor. This means the motor can be used for non-brake applications as well, thus reducing motor inventory. This also may allow use of a fan-cooled motor, which is sometimes not possible with brake mounted on the fan end.
