Collomix KR 160 Mixing Paddle for GFRC

$68.10

The standard mixing paddle that comes with the Collomix Xo6 tends to splash when used to do high shear mixing on GFRC.

For this reason, we recommend also purchasing the KR 160 HF mixing paddle with the Xo6 for GFRC. This birdcage-style mixing paddle is 6.25″ in diameter and has four vertical mixing bars instead of a helical blade. This style paddle is perfect for high shear mixing, which is essential for GFRC. This mixer is capable of mixing even very fluid mixes at high speeds without splashing or loss of material.

For GFRC mixes, start mixing your mist coat with the standard paddle and mix until well-blended. Then switch to the KR 160 paddle and mix at high speed for 30 seconds. This achieves high shear mixing. And, the Xo6’s Hexafit quick change coupling makes swapping mixing paddles fast and easy, often only taking a few seconds to complete. Then, to create the backer mix, you can gently fold in the fibers with the same paddle. Fibers should never be subjected to high shear mixing.
