Sulzer Chemtech will showcase its technologies for the extrusion of high-quality polymer foams with a range of forms, including profiles, sheets, pipes and beads, at Foam Expo Europe 2018, Hannover, Germany.

Sulzer Chemtech will present the technologies at stand 718.

The company will display its aixfotecTM twin screw extruder and its key components for the continuous production of low density, expanding or expanded foams from polystyrene, polyester, polypropylene and polylactic acid.

The extruder consists of two co-rotating, inter-meshing screws and can be equipped to provide direct gassing functionalities. The extrusion system aims at minimising energy consumption, waste production and the associated costs.
