These how-to's show applications involving machinery or spray systems for making molds for concrete casting, architectural restoration, and other applications.

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.

The EZ-Spray® Jr. Spray Gun is a versatile, convenient and easy-to-use spray system for spraying moldmaking and casting materials.
