A new screw encapsulation process said to double the life of a new or rebuilt screw is available from Milacron Inc., Batavia, Ohio. Its new StarGuard service encapsulates a screw with tungsten or chromium to protect against wear, abrasion, corrosion, and/or high temperature. It is said to be much less expensive than treating screws with common hard-facing alloys such as Stellite and Colmonoy. StarGuard reportedly provides crack- and porosity-free wear protection on the entire screw surface. Tel: (888) 439-2491. www.milacron.com
