VIP Coatings International introduces a new light weight, low pressure, cold spray, plural component spray machine & coating system, the LP- 1. It has been designed to spray VIP’s instant curing seamless polyurea, polyurethane and hybrid membranes for small to medium sized waterproofing and light industrial projects.

"Up until now our advanced coating solutions were only available to big industry and big projects," said Mark Teakle, the Technical Director of VIP Coatings International. "Now our high performance protective coatings can be cost effectively utilised for small and medium sized waterproofing and light Industrial applications. This opens up a whole new world of opportunities for waterproofing contractors, maintenance contractors, automotive aftermarket businesses and so much more."

The VIP Low Pressure Coating System is suited for the mobile contractor who requires the superior performance of a VIP spray applied seamless membrane with the advantages of rapid application and re-use times.

Requiring standard 110 or 240 power the LP-1 spray unit can be used almost anywhere. Configured to accept 2x 25L head packs the VIP LP-1 reduces chemical stock holdings and wastage and allows the operator to quickly and easily mobilise the spray rig to site.

"With two operators, 1 spray machine and 1 van you have a mobile waterproofing and protective lining business" said Mark Teakle, Technical Director of VIP Coatings International. "The rapid set-up, rapid application and instant curing means a mobile unit can complete protective coating jobs very quickly and easily". "Small low value projects that were simply not viable with traditional high pressure heated application machinery are now profitable with the LP-1 machine," concluded Mr Teakle.
