VESTAMID® compounds can be processed on conventional three-zone screws with a minimum length of 24 D to produce profiles, tubing (including multilayer tubing), secondary fiber optic jacketing, cable sheathing, films, and sheets. Other screw designs, such as barrier screws, can also give good processing results. For best results, we recommend that you follow the extrusion instructions in the brochure for VESTAMID® L-, D-, E- and Terra compounds.
Here you will find detailed information on
