PMC Sets the Bar High and Unveils NEW AP-3 Purge Gun at SPFA 2018

Oscar Wilde once said “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery”. Polyurethane Machinery Corporation (PMC) continues to experience this, by always elevating the standard for the Polyurethane industry. As one of the premier sponsors at this year’s SPFA Convention in Mobile, Alabama, PMC set the bar high once again, by unveiling their newest product – the AP-3 Air Purge Gun.

The AP-3 Air Purge Gun is economical, lightweight and compact in design. It weights a mere 2.4 pounds and is one of the lightest and smallest plural component spray guns on the market today. It requires less parts than most competitive air purge guns. The short trigger stroke reduces operator fatigue, especially in high-triggering applications such as residential insulation. The short trigger stroke also allows precise detail shots where competitive guns struggle. It has check valves for maximum cross-over protection and an advanced design for pattern development and mixing. The AP-3 is a well-balanced gun that is easy to maneuver, assemble and disassemble. “Innovative technology made simple”.

It wasn’t just about new guns, however. PMC’s newest generation of Hydraulic proportioners – The PH/PHX-2 Series has quickly become an ICON after only being introduced 5 years ago. It offers high value and superior performance at an entry level price. This machine is ideal for the basic contractor with its rugged design and affordability. The benefits include an electrical console that has been designed to eliminate the use of delicate circuit boards and displays. Pressure Balance Control is standard on this machine to shut down the unit when pressure imbalance occurs. It is CE Certified and it includes proximity style reversing switches to ensure virtually maintenance free operation and long service life, as well as a selectable count-down device pre-set by the operator to interrupt the operation of the pump circuit prior to an empty drum. Opposed piston pumping is the industry benchmark, so it includes durable and easily serviceable ball checks. The open frame design makes it easy to service and repair compared to the competitive imitation machines.

PMC’s spacious booth was an inviting environment for visitors to experience product demonstrations and engage in meaningful discussions with the PMC sales team, technical support team and top executives. The exhibit was welcoming with its signature blue and silver décor and appealing layout that created easy accessibility to view the new products comfortably.

PMC also provided their mobile showroom trailer for the SPFA PCP Certification training and testing. The PMC rig provided the power, proportioner, hoses and PX-7 guns for the organization to conduct their roofing portion of the Certification program.

Mike Kolibas, President of PMC, stated “At SPFA, it became evident that a PMC machine is the machine of choice for plural component spray. PMC has set the industry standard for producing high quality products, providing unrivaled customer service and building products with solid reliable performance. Our distributors and end users of PMC equipment have come to expect nothing less and all of these traits were proudly on display in the PMC booth at SPFA. The entire PMC team looks forward to continuing to serve the plural component spray foam and coatings industry.”
