ORIGIN: Post-consumer liquid container bottles (milk, juice) jars (detergent) food trays, industrial bins, car fuel tanks
PRE- PROCES: Generally, come from a separation and washing system
REMARKS: Is a high bulk density material, easier to feed
TURN KEY LINE:
Proven screw geometry perfect melting/dispersion of very low MFI fraction
ICMA's line FOR ALL PROCESSING TASK:
In Film recycling ICMA has addressed some major issues one of which is the feeding of the extremely light film materials. Such compelling task is achieved by a patented system that allows to continuously feed the extruders by also granting a high production yield.
Another advantage of our "one-step" approach is also to avoid expensive and "energy hungry" boiler units upstream frequently proposed by other suppliers.Contact us
In very specific cases cascade design is advisable, for instance, when a very tight filtering process is required before the compounding stage can be started.
Here we recommend to design the line using 2 co-rotating extruders, the first to execute the efficient degassing and filtering tasks and he second for compounding . An upstream single extruder may also be considered although the overall performance level will be affected.Contact us
Several other materials are nowadays finding a new life with our co-rotating extruders. The more common are plastic parts of electrical devices (RAEE) or PET, ABS etc etc .
Just enquire ICMA and come to our Innovation Hub to test your scrap!Contact us
With several lines turn-key or just extruders designed to process bio polymers, ICMA can be the partner of choice to supply a reliable system. Starting in our Innovation Hub with trials to check processability of your formulation.Contact us
Our knowledge in mixing natural fibres and a polyolefin roots back to the early 70’s when ICMA successfully pioneered, first in the World, the process technology for producing a thermoformable sheet for automotive interior trims made of virgin or recycled polypropylene and wood flour.
Today are available compounding and extrusion solutions.Contact us
Water-soluble polymers are also a new frontier in our market with the co-rotating extruders delivering best in class results compared to other technology, for instance by avoiding pre-mix in the material preparation and enabling "one step" process task.Contact us
The direct extrusion of sheets made of recycled resins allows the value increasing of a “poor” product.
The use of a co-rotating extruder allows the feeding of recycled scraps with a low selecting level, therefore cheaper.
From industrial wastes or selected post consumer scraps it is possible to obtain sheets having good mechanical properties that can be engineered with the addition of mineral fillers or reinforced and possibly further improved with the application of co-extruded aesthetic film.Contact us
