State-Of-The-Art Compounding Facility
Compounding and masterbatch processing are very demanding since additives must be incorporated into the base polymer with optimal dispersion. The Technology Center’s state of the art twin-screw compounding lines can take on the challenging tasks of homogenization, deagglomeration, dispersion, and distribution of additives, fillers, and liquids into the polymer base.
The Polymers Technology Center is a state-of-the-art compounding facility with the equipment and expertise you need for testing, analyzing, sampling, through full-scale production.
RECENT EQUIPMENT ADDITIONS
Mixaco has consigned PCE one of their Speedy 50 SD Mixers. This is a high speed mixer for dry solids and liquids which will allow us to intensely mix additives or masterbatches. It has mixing sacks which allow for easy clean up and off line mix preparations.
PTC just purchased a Maag Extrex 70 series gear pump for our 50mm Leistritz Maxx compounding line. The melt pump will increase the output stability of our twin screw and will help us compound and pelletize a wider range of materials.
