Microcompounder and mini injection moulding facility

The microcompounder has a capacity of making polymer nanocomposites. Mini-injection molding machine can subsequently prepare tensile/flexural specimen from the blends/nanocomposites. Thus, the facility offers an option to effectively blend as well as mold smaller quantity of polymeric materials and prepare test specimens for tensile and flexur
Make and Model
DSM XploreTM 5cm3 twin-screw extruder
Available mode for use
Mixing of 2 or more polymers Mixing of polymers with additives Molding in different cavities Filament extrusion
  • Capacity of mixing few grams of polymericmaterials (up to 5ml) during melt- mixing of polymer blends or making polymer nano- composites.
  • Extruded strand (diameter ~2mm)

Thermoplastics (with or without fillers or additives) are processed above their melting point (up to 350°C) in the micro- compounder
