LACQUER COATING

Description
OBJECT: Lacquer Coating. Properly disperse 40-50 lbs. of shading paste into 30 gallons of base material.
PROBLEM: Black, gelatinous shading paste must be mixed into a thin solution. Was never properly mixed, thus was extremely difficult to filter. Required excessive color adds due to poor dispersion. Original method required 45 minutes with a sawtooth blade mixer.
RESULT: A Model C-2 mixer was employed. It required only five minutes in the down-mode only with a success rate of 100% and eliminated the need for filtration.
AB MIXER: SOLD – Model C-2 mixer, 33″ immersion, 5″ rotor and 7.5 HP X.P. single speed motor.
EQUIPMENT REPLACED: 10 HP Cowles Mixer (sawtooth)
