The biodegradable materials like starch are fast replacing synthetic polymers in plastics industries, because of low cost, non- toxicity, biogradability and ample availability
The biodegradable polymer blends based on corn starch can be processed on Aasabi extruder with proper dispersion and with any TPS/TPC ratios.
Lab as well as production extruders are available in single screw and twin screw configurations. Lab extruders are mainly used for R & D, formulations, testing and production of small samples the extruders are tailor made to suit your requirements.
Screws and barrels are in high nitro tensile alloy steel for longer life and fitted with variable speed drives for controlled operations. Tempratures are accurately controlled through PIDs.
Starch based films are brittle and hydrophilic. Starch is generally mixed with various synthetic polymers, to produce biodegradable films to avoid brittleness.
Aasabi gives reactive extruders also, to manufacture biodegradable polymers with pelletizing / DFC facility.
