Plastics Compounds with Natural Fillers
In the run-up to the trade show, CKT Kunststoffverarbeitungstechnik GmbH, Mittweida, Germany, offers Nature Plastic Compounds (NPC), based on environmentally-friendly polyolefines such as PP and PE filled with diverse natural fillers from local farms. The company will use a short screw for NPC compounding from the end of 2014 on, which will guarantee a short residence time of the natural substances inside the extruder, along with high energy efficiency. This short screw was developed in a joint project of CKT’s affiliate company Ökoplast GmbH and Mittweida University of Applied Sciences, and will be presented to visitors from the industry at the trade show. Together with Kunststoff-Zentrum Leipzig, the company has collected first experience before, in producing small amounts of thermoplastic materials with a short screw. Ökoplast will start production of the compounds in 2015.
