The Xo6 mixer is a powerful and versatile tool that is optimized for GFRC and SCC, excelling at fluid mixes and high shearing GFRC mixes.

The Xo6 comes with the MK 160 HF mixing paddle, a 6.25″ diameter helical bladed head which is excellent for initial blending and mixing. It works well with heavy, granular materials like aggregate-based concrete mixes and materials that need blending, stirring and lower-speed mixing. However, at high speeds helical blades can fling material up and out of the mixing bucket. This is a problem when mixing GFRC, as high shear mixing is required.

For this reason, we also recommend 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 precast mixes, you can use the standard MK 160 paddle. Simply mix until ingredients are well-blended.

For GFRC mixes, start mixing your mist coat with the MK 160 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.
