Ideal for use with medium-to-high viscosity fluids, Optimum® SmoothFlow™ tapered dispensing tips apply thick or particle-filled fluids with ease and accuracy.
The tapered design provides smooth flow of viscous fluids and resists clogging when dispensing particle-filled materials. A higher flow rate allows you to lower air pressure and shorten dispense times, which can help improve yields.
Manufactured with clean, blunt ends to ensure precise, repeatable dispensing, Optimum tapered tips are available in both flexible and rigid designs. Flexible, translucent tapered tips are made of a special polyethylene with a light-blocking additive that protects UV-sensitive fluids. Rigid, opaque polypropylene-molded tapered tips provide protection for light-sensitive fluids.
This makes them ideal for dispensing UV-cure adhesives, gel cyanoacrylates, solder paste, sealants, epoxies, RTV silicones, and even thick pastes.
Each tapered tip is manufactured and quality-tested to be free of molding flash – bits of plastic that can block fluid flow and cause inconsistent deposits.
All Optimum dispensing tips are manufactured in the USA in silicone-free facilities to prevent fluid contamination and are certified for industrial use.
Tip hubs are color coded by size to help identify the gauge or internal diameter. Tips are also packaged in clear boxes for easy inventory control – with lot numbers, part numbers, and other information clearly labeled for greater process control and traceability.
