STARextruder - battenfeld-cincinnati


Efficient PET processing

The best for for processing of PET bottle flakes

Over the last few years, PET has been used more and more often for high-grade packaging, thanks to its high transparency, good mechanical properties and ample availability. However, the hygroscopic characteristics of PET during extrusion may lead to lower product quality. Thanks to their effective high-vacuum degassing with the proven planetary roller system, STARextruders offer the best conditions for high product quality.
