Interesting, here's the UK website: http://www.aralditefusion.co.uk/fusion.html

I wouldn't call it a "breakthrough", though by cutting out the mixing part it might be more appealing to those who find it inconvenient.

One thing I would worry about is cleaning the nozzle after use...

JSR might like that. It looks like the same single use mixing nozzle use on 2 part expanding foam.

The only thing new is the inlet is made to fit the siamese epoxy syringe.

@JSR, the nozzle is single use like a paper cup. You don't clean them for re-use. You can buy packages of just the nozzle. Look them up online.

They've had these I France for years. Quite wasteful on such small tubes of araldite, I tend to use less than the volume of the mixer at one time.

I don't even like the siamese syringes much, one nozzle always ends up clogging up slightly and letting out less flow, then you have to try and push the plunger at an angle ;)

hahah that's cool it would be very handy since you can pour it straight out into a mould or something instead of mixing it then pouring it into a mould

I tryed it, it mixes great lucky because i only had about 5mm gap to pour the epoxy though :lol: but you loose a lot in the nozzles like al-xg said.

Thought its handy for some of the odd castes we need. I tryed to clean out the nozzles but there's no chance, the epoxy was only in the tube for 1min and its 13*c in the shed where i cased, i tryed to warm up the epoxy then use the compressor to blow it out but it wasn't going anywhere.

Doesn't adhere to plastic very well. Syringe epoxy sticks to plastic and metal whereas JB barely sticks to plastic and very strong to metal.
