The Manual SpikeFast Gun is designed specifically to remediate and repair wood railroad ties quickly and easily during routine maintenance-of-way operations. It dispenses Spikefast, a non-foaming, polyurethane resin designed to quickly fill splits and holes in wooden ties increasing the longevity of the tie.
When a deformed spike hole is injected using the Manual Spikefast Gun, the Spikefast material bonds quickly to the area, in just 10 minutes. Once it is fully set, it provides higher strength and higher spike-holding power than fresh hardwood. This allows spikes to be quickly and easily anchored without shifting, movement, or other issues associated with old wood railroad ties.
The Manual SpikeFast Gun is easy to use, and is designed to mix, pressurize, and precisely dispense the polyurethane compound. This provides better overall tie quality, simplifies the remediation process, and allows anyone on your team to easily use this unit for applying SpikeFast, regardless of previous training.
