Graco’s XM PFP technology is used worldwide to mix and spray intumescent coatings
Why hotpotting isn’t as fast and inexpensive as you might think
Hotpotting or manual mixing is perceived as a fast and inexpensive method of mixing two components. But in the long term it’s neither.
Why ATEX approval of the complete fireproofing system is vital
Designed for the application of epoxy intumescent fire protection coatings, the Graco XM PFP is the first and only system that is ATEX and IECEx certified for use in explosive atmospheres; it is rated for both electrical and mechanical construction.
Three reasons to move from hotpotting to a plural-component machine
Discover the benefits of Graco’s XP and XM line of sprayers when you switch from hotpotting to a plural-component machine.
The Graco approach to passive fire protection
In passive fire protection (PFP), proper coating of structural components is key to providing fire resistance.
The fully ATEX approved PFP sprayer for hazardous environments
When you’re applying fireproofing materials in hazardous environments, it is critical that your application equipment is designed properly.
The environmentally-friendly alternative to hotpotting
An inherent disadvantage of hotpotting is that it requires large amounts of clean-up solvent. Is it time to clean up your act?

How the Graco Electric KING wins against conventional pneumatic sprayers
There are numerous ways that Graco’s KING electric airless sprayer is superior to conventional pneumatic sprayers.
The advantages of a sprayer that eliminates icing
Icing is a problem that is inherent to all air motors. It can be caused by a number of factors, such as the compressed air temperature, dew point, pressure, and volume flow rate, or the ambient air temperature, dew point and air flow.
How to Minimise Air Motor Freezing
Using the same basic principle as household refrigerators, air motor icing or freezing occurs when air is compressed and then rapidly depressurised.
Automatic Internal and External Pipe Coating
One key to Italian Industrial Agency's (IIA) success in offering automatic internal and external coatings was to strike a balance between cost effectiveness and productivity.
Graco’s KING electric airless sprayer: what sets it apart from conventional electric airless sprayers?
In one word: ATEX. The Graco KING electric airless sprayer is the world’s first electric sprayer for protective coatings that is approved for hazardous locations.
