CMRDI of Egypt bought a Microlab 20D to achieve a study on nano particles

02 Dec 2014

Polymeric nanocomposites are intensely studied due to the performance improvement achieved when a controlled amount of nanosized particles are added to a polymer matrix. The outstanding changes on physical and mechanical properties of polymers due to the addition of solid nanoparticles is explained by the creation of a huge surface area, which increases the interaction between the nanoparticle and the polymer.

Donatien Bruggeman, Business Developer at Rondol states: “Hot Melt Extrusion is the most promising and practical method to be used in this industry. Since solvents are not required, this can be applied to polymer processing industry to produce nanocomposites based on usual compounding devices, such as, Rondol Twin Screw extruders. That is why Central Metallurgical Research and Development Institute (CMRDI) of Egypt has recently chosen our Microlab 20D Twin Screw Extruder to achieve a study on nano particles.”

Furthermore, Rania Khazendar, Commercial Manager at Pan Arab Commercial and Technical Consultancy (PACT) states:” Given the versatility and the advanced easy clean system of the Rondol Microlab,  the  CMRDI will use it for an additional application which is the preparation of ABS 3D printing cartridge thanks to the quality of the threads coming out from our extruders. In a near future, this new equipment will be asset to increase the speed of rapid prototyping.”
