The Collomix KR140HF "Bird Cage" mixing paddle is designed especially for semi-liquid materials (leveling materials, fillers, thick plasters, sealing compounds, adhesive mortar, grouting compounds). It is meant to be used with large mixing batches. It's made for very high-force mixing action. For that reason, it uses a side-to-side mixing action. This prevents both splatering and air pockets, and denser materials from settling on the bottom due to insufficient stirring action.
What Kind of Materials Can You Use a "KR" for?
The KR stirring paddles is meant to be used with spreading (semi-liquid) mixtures. Ideally, it should be used for compounds such as sealing and grouting compounds, adhesive mortar, thick plasters, fillers, and leveling materials. It may also be used with other substances like paste, coverings, epoxy-resin, thin-bed mortar, tile adhesive, and gypsum plaster.
What Does the "140" Signify?
Whenever a Collomix product has "140" it tells you that the diameter of that paddle is 140 mm and is intended for use with the Xo 4 mixer. The Xo 4 has a more powerful engine and requires a wider diameter stirrer in order to function optimally.
What does "HF" Mean?
"HF" stands for HexaFix. This is the name of Collomix's Quick Couple technology. It tells you that this stirring paddle uses their updated HexaFix technology (replacing the older M14). This technology allows for swift, easy, and neat attachment and detachment of the stirrer. It makes switching stirrers and dismantling less of a chore.
Please Note: Each package comes with 2 stirring paddles
