The solution: our Planetary Roller Extruder
The properties of the plastics depend in particular on the structure of the polymers (degree of cross-linking, chain length). As a raw material, polymers are a substance comprising numerous polymer molecules. These polymers are then supplemented with a wide range of additives (plasticisers, solvents, pigments, fillers, processing aids, stabilisers).
Bioplastics can refer to bioplastics, biologically degradable plastics, and bio-based polymers (biopolymers). Bio-based polymers are produced from renewable biomass feedstocks (e.g. sugar, starch, vegetable oils, cellulose). Thanks to their modularity and scalability, ENTEX Planetary Roller Extruders can perform all the process steps required for the production of plastics and bioplastics.
