Extrusion IS OUR SPECIALTY
FROM MONOFILAMENT TO OFFSHORE PIPING:
Benefit from our proven expertise in all aspects of extrusion. Whether you need monofilament for woven fabric or multilayer lines, including even large-volume pipes for the oil and gas industry, we can provide support. In our test centers we have various extrusion systems available for research and development purposes.
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
screw and extruder design,
extrusion of cable sheathing,
extrusion of secondary fiber optic jacketing, and
