    I am trying to find a source for gelcoat dispenser like the one I have for catalyst on the photo.
    It would need to be one or two liters in size. I would appreciate if someone could tell me where I can buy one.

    Thanks, Axel

    I have these available, in 50, 100 and 500 ml size. Contact me if you are interested.

    I am using them as well, for dispensing epoxy resin, hardener, polyester resin and peroxide. They work extremely well. (unless someone dispenses mixed epoxy resin/hardener, don't ask...). But even then they are easy to take apart and clean out.

    Thanks Herman.

    They need to be one or two liters in size.
    Could you special order bigger ones?

    No. But the 500 ml would suffuce. It is relatively easy to do 2 or 4 strokes. We very regularly fill 1 liter bottles with resins, and that goes really fast. (a 1 liter bottle of epoxy resin takes 20 seconds or so)

    I guess when the diameter of the piston is increased more (to reack 1 or 2 liters), the power needed to move the cilinder will get too large to pump viscous fluids (gelcoat, epoxy).

    When visiting composite shows (JEC, Essen or Frankfurt) I do not recall larger dispensers.

    What is available as well is a double pump, which dispenses resin (or gelcoat) and peroxide in 1 go. Mixing ratio from 1-5% (adjustable). This takes the error rate down, and speeds up dispensing.

    Salesman from Euroresins came by last week and I found the dispenser that I was looking for in his catalog.
