Recommended Mixing Nozzle Sizes by Adhesive Type and Viscosity

Adhesive Type              Number of Mixing Elements Needed to Properly Mix

Acrylic                         8 - 10 Elements      (This includes MMA's or Methyl Methacrylate Adhesives)

Epoxy                         15 - 24 Elements

Polysulfide                   24 - 32 Elements

Recommended Mixing Nozzle Diameter by Material Viscosity

Material Viscosity                       Mixing Element Diameter Range

 Thin < 5,000cps                           2.4 - 6.4mm   (0.093 - 0.25 in)

(Thinner than syrup)
