Plural Component (2K, 3K or 4K System) is when you take more than one component and a chemical reaction occurs which causes the paint to harden.
Wagner is the leading manufacturer of 2K Systems (Plural Component), and is the most used liquid application equipment overseas for a reason. Their 2K Systems such as the Twin Control Unit, 2K Comfort and 2K Smart units are extremely user friendly and provide a faster ROI rather than use of a Pressure Pot or “Hotpotting”. These systems are ideal for multiple colors or even 1 consistent color. Days of mixing paint by hand are over and an overall waste of time and money.
- Cost savings. 2K Systems mix your application elements in real-time as you’re applying them, which means you’re only mixing what you need for the job. Anyone who has used a pressure pot or hotpot knows that there is often a great deal of waste at the end of a job. The only waste with a plural component or 2K System is what is left in the hose, which is often not much at all.
- Time savings. As mentioned above, cleaning the pressure pot takes time and effort, where a 2K System just needs to be flushed out and shut down. Time is money, so what you save in time could be used to apply finish and get onto your next part.
- Environmental friendliness. 2K Systems do not use much solvent, and with 100% solids, there isn’t any at all (except for flushing). This means that emissions are reduced significantly when you using a Wagner 2K System. In addition to curbing emissions, there’s not much waste at the end of a job since the system mixes on demand. Less waste is always a good thing especially in today’s world.
Plural component spraying is typically performed with epoxies, polyurethanes and polyurea.
