REMCO'S TPB SERIES
THERMOPLASTIC STRIP BUILDER™
New coating materials and processing methods for strip building are now available. The new materials are thermoplastic elastomers including TPUs, TPRs, TPOs and others. These elastomers, which have physical properties that compare favorably to their thermoset cousins, add significant additional processing advantages:
- Recycling, by mixing it with virgin material
- No post-application curing
- Can be ground to finished diameter after cooling to room
- Can be tooled in-line
- Can be processed without exposing personnel to toxic fumes
The machinery designed to produce cylindrical TPE products was developed by Remco in 2002, and utilizes a design based on REMCO’s line of rubber roll building systems. While the extruders are different animals, the process is the same. If you have an operator familiar with a Remco Thermoset Builder, he can easily jump on a Thermoplastic Extruder and build away.
