VytaFlex Showcase: Satisfying Demands of Concrete Casting Industry
The Market Potential Is Huge...
Keeping up with the world wide demand for stone veneer, concrete countertops and similar
cast concrete applications takes dedication, discipline and market timing. If you are a
producer, large orders for cast concrete elements can come quickly and delivery windows
are very short. If you disappoint customers like Home Depot or Lowes, your
reputation (and your business) can deteriorate quickly. Any large scale concrete casting
operation needs the best tools available to be competitive. Specifically, rubber molds
that are going to stand up to constant cycling (cast concrete, demold, repeat) without
breaking down. Molds must also render color accurate castings to ensure that a product
ships tomorrow matches product that will ship six months from now.
New Chemistry... VytaFlex® urethane rubbers (Shore 10A to 60A) were developed for high volume
concrete production and specifically to handle the abrasiveness of high-aggregate content
concrete ad-mixtures. The exclusive V-Polymer chemistry took years to develop and gives
concrete casters a definite edge for long-term dimensional stability and mold performance.
Color accuracy and surface finish on concrete castings is not an issue with
It's not enough to have the best mold rubber available for production casting. Unless you
can make many molds in a very short period of time, you'll never make delivery deadlines
demanded by large re-sellers of these cast concrete products.
The EZ-Mix Meter Mix Machine is small, yet powerful and will pump rubber from
either 55-gallon Drum Units or 275-gallon Tote Units. The machine will mix and dispense
VytaFlex rubber at a rate of 20 lbs. (9.07 kgs.) per minute which translates in to an
immediate labor savings.
Doing The Math...
For example, the EZ-Mix Meter Mix Machine will let two men make more molds in 20 hours
than 5 men hand mixing and pouring rubber in 40 hours. The "human error" factor
associated with mixing mold rubber is eliminated, resulting in less wasted material.
The EZ-Mix Meter Mix Machine perfectly mixes the rubber with less air entrapment.
Results: Stronger, Longer-Lasting Production Molds.
