New mixing screw grows up.
The 4.5-in. version is used to reclaim barrier film of LDPE and EVOH and extrude it into a profile. The processor previously used a conventional barrier screw, Egan spiral mixer, and a compatibilizer additive. Randcastle says its Recirculator screw makes the part with 98% fewer defects even without compatibilizer and zero defects with compatibilizer. Randcastle: (973) 239-1150 * PTDirect: 261SV
