Due to its modular design, the ZSK MEGAcompounder is ideally suited for and adaptable to all processes. From LLDPE, HDPE, or PP powders (that are premixed continuously with additives and fed to the ZSK), to LDPE melts that must be pelletized, or melt solutions from which solvents are removed.
Long Fiber Thermoplastics (LFT)
Twin screw extruders from Coperion have been used successfully for the production of long fiber thermoplastics for many years. The pultrusion pellets are an integral part of the automotive and vehicle industry as well as the building trade, sports equipment and furniture. The lightweight building material features very good mechanical properties with low weight and at the same time makes high demands on the compounding process.
Thermoplastic Elastomers (TPE)
All over the world, thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) are produced in a wide variety of forms and recipes using Twin-screw compounders ZSK. In some instances, the processing stage is followed by heating to produce semi-finished products. Due to their molecular structure, thermoplastic elastomers possess elastic properties combined with thermoplastic processing characteristics.
ZSK corotating intermeshing twin-screw extruders in MEGAcompounder or MEGAvolume design for compounding polyolefins, engineering resins, color additive masterbatches, and blending reinforced plastics.
