Elix Polymers: New compounding line dedicated for ABS and ABS blends

Elix Polymers has announced that it is to invest in a new compounding line at its Tarragona site. The company's planned investment is part of its strategic objective to become a leading manufacturer of high quality pre-colored ABS resins and derivatives as well as tailor-made specialties used in Automotive, Healthcare, Consumer, Appliances and Electronics applications.

The new line will incorporate state of the art technologies for thermoplastics compounding production, specifically for ABS and ABS blends, and will be developed in cooperation/partnership with leading suppliers of these technologies. The line will include a twin screw compounder, ZSK 92 Mc18, from Coperion GmbH, and an underwater pelletizing system, 7EAC, from Gala Kunststoff GmbH.

The line, which will come into operation by Q2 2016, will provide Elix Polymers with greater flexibility to deliver a wider range of tailor-made solutions and will increase capacity on top of the current compounding line.
