Gruber Systems can provide you with everything you need to create a polymer concrete manufacturing facilility, including automated process control equipment, conveyor systems, cranes, carts, processing tunnels, molds and other tooling, and supplies and accessories. Our Autocaster Ultra/PC (Polymer Concrete) continuous casting system automates the casting process and production of polymer concrete matrix - resulting in higher yields, lower labor costs, resin cost savings, and more.
Polymer Concrete traditionally relies on manual mixing and dispensing of material matrix, as well as labor intensive handling and processing of the castings. Gruber Systems Autocaster Ultra/PC casting machine and other automation and factory equipment automates this labor-intensive process, delivering added production with lower labor costs, higher quality castings, and an improved bottom line.
Polymer Concrete is used in a large cross section of industries and applications - including Pulp and Paper, Chemical Processing, Metal Refining, Pump Manufacturing, Food Processing, Service Stations, Fast Food, Retail, Construction, Municipalities, Utilities and more!
Advantages Compared to traditional Portland Cement
Compared to portland cement, polymer concrete offers significant mechanical advantages - including much higher minimum compressive strength, much higher minimum tensile strength, much higher minimum bending strength, much lower maximum moisture absorption, and much higher freeze-thaw cycles.
