Italian compounder Sirmax goes forward to invest in technological innovation, continuing strongly in the direction of a sustainable business. Sirmax has expanded its production capacity for sustainable plastics, relying upon Fast Track ZSK extruders from Coperion. These new models stand out for their especially short lead times and subsequent rapid ROI. In Sirmax’s case, Coperion designed two ZSK 70 Mc18 twin screw extruders especially for processing bioplastics. Only five months after placing the order, both Fast Track ZSK extruders have commenced production.
Sirmax installed the ZSK 70 Mc18 extruders, each with 70 mm screw diameters, ZS-B side feeders and ZS-EG side devolatilization, at Microtec Srl’s Padova (Italy) location. Sirmax has held a 70% interest in Microtec Srl for the past year, a manufacturer of biocompounds marketing its products under the name BioComp®.
