Adhesives

The "bonding" technique for joining parts is gaining increasing importance in a wide range of applications. On the one hand, synthetic elements such as dissolved synthetic resin and various plastic materials are used as the raw material base for adhesives. 

On the other hand, natural elements such as water-soluble, plant and animal protein compounds are used. The technical demands on adhesives often require the addition of fillers and supplements such as softening agents, thickening agents, screening agents and antifreeze, etc. 
PMH and PML Planetary Mixing and Kneading Machines are especially suited for the homogenization of adhesives. With each mixing element rotating on its own axis and all mixing elements rotating simultaneously on a central axis, the entire mixture passes through the machine. The vacuum-tight design of the machine facilitates the processing of products with organic solvents and prevents the introduction of air. 
BP Tank Press-outs are specially adapted for emptying the system tanks of the mixing and kneading machines.


Mixing and De-Aerating

Products & Solutions in the field of Mixing and De-Aerating
PMD / PMD-VC Intensive Mixers

For processing large batches of moderate- to high-viscosity product, the PMD and PMD-VC intensive mixers are the machines of choice. The stationary mixing and dispersing units are successfully utilized primarily in the paint, printing ink and pigment industries.

MasterMix® Dissolver

The NETZSCH MasterMix® dissolvers are fast, high-powered dispersing units for simple mixing tasks. They can easily process products with viscosities up to 100 Pa·s from a broad range of applications.

PMH / PML Planetary Mixing and Kneading Machines

The NETZSCH planetary mixing and kneading machines show their true magnitude with difficult-to-disperse products and high viscosities. In particular, dispersion of finely-powdered and lightweight components in liquids is accomplished extremely quickly with product-specific mixing elements such as crossbeam and butterfly agitators or various dispersion disks.

NETZSCH DA / DA-VS Vacuum De-Aerator

The NETZSCH Vacuum De-Aerator offers a simple way to remove even micronized gas and air pockets from liquids of various viscosities or from viscous compounds and pastes.

Laboratory De-Aerator MiniVac

The MiniVac laboratory-scale De-Aerator was specially developed for small batches or initial tests and – like the production-scale NETZSCH vacuum de-aerator – operates according to the VTR principle (vacuum - thin film - rotary process). With extreme ease of operation you can remove micronized pockets of gas and air from free-flowing products of various viscosities as well as from viscous pastes and compounds.
