Industrial & Technical Application
CG-HP40 Multigun – Novatech and Altachem
The aim of this project was to create a unique caulking gun suitable for all degrees of viscosity, giving the user one gun for all caulking jobs. The gun needed to have easy and stepless adjustability that was self-explanatory to the user. It also needed to be ergonomically optimal with well-balanced distribution of weight and a soft grip and trigger shape with an attractive design. We had to create a robust gun that is light weight and within the acceptable dimension limits so it can be used with different hand sizes.
Kingfisher bespoke applicator – Kingfisher & LINDAL Group
The product that was designed was a three-part applicator that is sold separately, as a standalone product. A nozzle is provided on the side of the can which upon use is attached to the top of a LINDAL high delivery valve on the can. The reusable actuator then easily screws onto that can, making the product ready for use.

Eco Dropper – Yonwoo
Existing dropper composed of glass/rubber/PP or ABS, etc. is difficult for separate waste collection and recycling. Thus, Yonwoo developed a mono-material dropper which is 100% recyclable.
Substitute existing dropper materials (rubber/glass) into mono-material (PP, Polypropylene) while keeping the same functionality, performance, usability and minimizing the raw material usage.
