, Numerous Promix leading supplier of foam extrusion systems, static mixers and melt coolers, will be presenting several highlights at k2019 (Hall 9, Booth E32).
Under the motto ‘Yes, we foam!’ the company would like to open the dialogue on how Promix Physical Foaming Systems could help save raw material cost, improve foam quality and reduce carbon footprints.
To complement the product portfolio, Promix is also launching PROCELL, a newly developed chemical nucleating agent promising the smallest cell sizes and highest foam quality.
The Swiss company has advanced its physical foaming technology with eco-friendly CO2 or N2 blowing agents. Promix has more than 200 industrial installations, including a number of OEMs that have successfully integrated Promix foam extrusion technology into their extrusion lines.
At K 2019, Promix will showcase the relevant key components for physical foaming and exchange information on experiences and possibilities within the specific application fields.
Industrial application references range from packaging film and thermoformed sheet made of PP, PS and PET, PP and PE boards, foam core and corrugated pipes made from PP and TPE, as well as profiles made from PA, ABS and other materials.
Foaming of cable sheathing has become another recent and successful application, and an increasing interest for physical foaming has been observed in extrusion blow moulding, which is why Kautex Maschinenbau (Hall 14, Booth A16-A18) is presenting a running line with an integrated, machine-adapted Promix foam extrusion system to demonstrate production of a foamed water bottle at the exhibition.
Another example is a foamed PET cup for hot-fill applications, which has been developed by SML Maschinengesellschaft mbH, (Hall 17, booth C39-C42).
