Bethany, Conn.-Laticrete, a leading manufacturer of globally proven construction solutions for the building industry, introduced the Pro-Mix Station: a mobile pourable cart that helps eliminate harmful dust and provides combined batch consistency for efficient self-leveling subfloors, overlays and epoxy projects . According to the company, the Pro-Mix Station can be used with a wide range of Laticrete self-leveling flooring products and features a removable drill bit that can be used to mix tile and stone adhesives and repair mortars. The company also said it has a built-in dust extractor that helps prevent unhealthy dust particles from being inhaled.
“A successful job depends on optimal mixing time, less spillage and consistent results from the final product,” said Elvis Torres, product manager at Laticrete. “Installers need an all-in-one solution to prepare, mix and pour high-quality products effectively and in a safer way, especially for larger jobs that require more material – the Pro-Mix Station is the ultimate solution. “
According to the company, the Pro-Mix Station is made from a durable steel frame for longevity and includes rotating casters for easy mobility and two mixing paddles to enable mixing of a wide variety of products. The station is easy to pour and with a removable bin with a capacity of three bags the station can deliver up to 680 kg per hour of output. The removable drill’s powerful motor operates at 14.5 amps/110 volts and can be adjusted based on the required product consistency with two drill speeds, 580 and 250 revolutions per minute (RPM).
