Irion-America Launches XP-Delta Caulking Gun
Irion-America, LLC, manufacturer of the Delta Caulking Gun, introduced its new XP technology, which the company says is ideal for trade professionals. When set to a 12:1 thrust ratio the gun dispenses standard materials such as acrylic, latex and silicone caulks or similar compounds with ease. When switched to a 25:1 thrust ratio, the gun becomes ideal for dispensing thicker adhesives and is perfect when working in cold weather, according to the company.
The XP-Delta offers several additional features including a rubber-coated handle and trigger, antirust/scratch proof barrel, rotary carriage/ladder hook and tough and durable catch plate. The drip control technology can be turned on and off with your thumb and when on the gun becomes completely drip free. It is compatible with 10 ounce or 310 ml cartridges.
“With a small movement the thrust ratio changes from
12:1 to 25:1, perfect for everyone working with high and low viscous materials,” said Thomas Irion, CEO.
