Calender Feeding

One common way to produce polymer films is calendering. A broad range of applications from medical films to vinyl flooring layers are produced using this technique. Raw materials are compounded in a prior step to feed the calender. The optimal compounding aggregate is able to achieve excellent mixing performance at a broad spectrum of throughputs.

This is where X-Compound’s 3-Flight Continuous Kneaders prove their strength. The technology combines a unique principle of motion with an exceptional degree of flexibility keeping the product quality at a constant level.
