Flexible, disposable photocatalytic plastic films for the destruction of viruses

A Rondol vertical micro extruder, equipped with a slit die, was used to produce the first flexible, very thin, photocatalytic plastic film, produced by a scalable process (extrusion), for virus inactivation. Covid19 (SARS-CoV-2), influenzas A and B and other respiratory illnesses are spread by sneezing, coughing and talking; virus particles then settle on surfaces and …

Development of a Hot-Melt-Extrusion-Based Spinning Process to Produce Pharmaceutical Fibers and Yarns

We are proud to share that our Rondol twin screw micro extruder can be adapted successfully to produce pharmaceutically usable fibres and yarns. Cost-effective modifications to our hot melt extruder – such as a 3D printed custom die – allow the production of high-quality fibers with a high tensile strength to be created that further …

Research: improvements to recycled poly(lactic acid) (PLA)

Recycling plastics is a crucial solution to environmental and resource availability problems. In this study on PLA, yerba mate nanoparticles were added to improve the performance and suitability of recycled PLA for applications such as food packaging. The Rondol Vertical All-In-One microextruder was used to process the PLA pellets. Read the full MDPI article here: …

White Paper on Aspirin

1st result of the Technology cooperation between RONDOL and SEQENS announced in March. AcetylSalicylic Acid (ASA better known as Aspirin) is one of the most popular Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAID) in the world. First used as pain killer, Aspirin also brings lesser-known benefits that can be essential to prevent cardiovascular events. Further applications are currently …
