Portamix Hippo Mega Mixer has a clever design. One person can mix, transport, and pour easily and accurately, reducing downtime and material waste. These versatile machines have a proven track record on construction sites, increasing productivity and profitability. The convenient wheelbase allows the mix to be delivered quickly to the right place with excellent control. Ideal for mixing large quantities and then pouring them into small containers.
There are several ways to mix self-leveling materials. It can be crude and ineffective manual methods to high-throughput methods that often require expensive equipment.. The mixing method is more important than the machine. The right equipment is a great help. To ensure a uniform appearance and quality, coatings require thorough mixing and rapid application to the floor. During the mixing process with Mega Hippo, the canister remains stationary while the mixing spiral or paddle rotates to mix the product. The paddle spins much faster compared to simple concrete mixers because some products require a much higher rotation speed of the mix. Materials such as self-leveling underlays, decorative strips, epoxy coatings need to be “churned” to release the polymers.
Nowadays are many different types of self-leveling materials available today. Self-leveling materials range from simple water-based coatings with a mixture of cement and aggregates to elaborate materials including many types of polymeric materials.
While different materials may have specific requirements, the basic technique is usually the same for all types of materials. Regardless of the material you are working with, thorough mixing is essential to meet the material manufacturer’s quality requirements and to obtain a finish that meets the customer’s expectations. Without this, an unsatisfactory finish and damage to the coating can lead to costly repairs.
