New Material Development Line

CabeceraLinea3
The new material development line allows to obtain composite materials, mechanical analysis of materials and the measurement of permeation of oxygen and water vapor through plastic packaging and sheets. It includes equipment such as:

EXTRUDER

Model: Eurolab 16.
Manufacturer: Thermo Fisher.

The extruder enables processing different types of polymers. The system is equipped with two feeders (volumetric and gravimetric), a pneumatic air dryer and a pelletizer.
  • ▸ Double Screw Extruder.
  • ▸ Maximum speed: 1,000 rpm.
  • ▸ Maximum working temperature: 400ºC.
  • ▸ Maximum pressure: 100 bar.
