has several laboratories associated with universities of Excellence to conduct groundbreaking research.
The extruder is designed for use at the laboratory level, in which its 20 mm screw allows for working with materials such as: LDPE, HDPE, PP, Nylon, PET, ABS, POM among others, with a capacity of approximately 100 kg of powder/hour, reaching temperatures of up to 800ºC and velocities of between 0 – 800 rpm. for the preparation of composites, nanocomposites, blends or mixtures of polymer materials. This equipment is linked to a chill roll that can produce films of up to approximately 125 mm in width, with regular thicknesses. As well, it has a system for producing pellets, with a water bath (LW-100) and pelletizer (LZ-120) to obtain granulated materials (pellets) for the production of master batches.
