Ellsworth Adhesives subsidiary company, KitPackers, has developed an innovative new packaging product for customers seeking a simple system for mixing and dispensing small quantities of two component reactive chemical systems, especially adhesives and sealants. The new TwinPak Needle Pouch system, now available to purchase from Ellsworth Adhesives Europe, includes two chambers – separated by a burst-able seal – for the reactive components, a third chamber to aid in mixing, and a dispensing outlet for the attachment of a luer lock tip.
The TwinPak Needle Pouch system has been specially designed for customers requiring a simple, low cost package capable of delivering two component reactive chemicals mixed in highly variable mix ratios. The dispensing tip is an important innovation, since it gives the total system much greater dispensing accuracy. Another significant benefit of the new TwinPak Needle Pouch system is that users will waste much less product and spend far less time cleaning areas where the mixed adhesive or sealant has been misapplied. The needle adapter for the package, available through KitPackers, is a 3/16” ID 10-32 threaded male luer lock adapter, which accepts standard luer lock needles.
For the standard package, the large compartment will have a capacity of approximately 55ml and the small compartment will have a capacity of up to 12ml. The total capacity for a 1:1 mix ratio product would be about 25ml, and the total capacity for a 4:1 mix ratio product would be 60ml. KitPackers can fill the package to order to the customer’s specifications. Other size options are available with a special set-up charge.
The TwinPak Needle Pouch system is just one of many packaging options available from Ellsworth Adhesives. A variety of formats for re-packaging can be selected from dual and single component cartridge components to bi-pac foil sachets. Solutions can be mixed for viscosity or colour modification and fillers, spacer beads and pigments can be added.
Batches of all sizes can be modified – from quarts to totes and batch qualification testing is included before and/or after packaging. The qualified team of lab staff are fully prepared to handle, store, re-package and ship hazardous and temperature sensitive materials and their expert care can extend shelf life and cut down on unnecessary waste.
