Undercoating in a Can
Tekton 44 Undercoating vs Aerosol Cans
Undercoating in aerosol cans are on the average filled with 80% propellant gases and only 20% undercoating. Tekton 44 is 100% undercoating and is using air (not harmful gases) for its application method. It is safe to say that 1 liter of TK 44 covers the equivalent area of 4/5 spray cans. The savings are considerable.
2. APPLICATION SPEED:
The constant air pressure and the large nozzle opening on our gun, guarantee a much faster application than aerosol undercoating in a can.
TK 44 is being applied with ± 40 psi constant air pressure. The undercoating is therefore not merely covering the surface but is actually being forced into small cracks and crevices on the surface. This allows for far superior adhesion and protection. Aerosols lack the strength of our system and their pressure fades as the can empties.
4. UNIFORM COVERAGE:
Anyone who has used an aerosol undercoating in a can knows how difficult it is to achieve a uniform layer of product on the substrate. The mechanics of the aerosol nozzle almost invariably lead to unintended thin spots and patches of excessive product accumulation. This greatly inhibits the effectiveness of the coating.
The Tekton system eliminates these problems because of the uniform air pressure used to apply the product and the predictable pattern of the guns’ nozzle projects. TK 44 can be applied in a variety of thick or thin coats by simply changing the nozzle of the spray gun. Aerosols cannot be adjusted to spray varying thicknesses of coatings.
5. ENVIRONMENTAL WASTE:
Besides the propellant gases, aerosol applications result in 3 / 4 extra empty cans to dispose of.
