Sirmax Relies on Coperion ZSK Technology for Bioplastics

Italian compounder Sirmax (in Padua) is expanding its commitment to sustainable plastics. Recently, Sirmax acquired a 70% share of Microtec Srl (Padua, Italy), a manufacturer and marketer of biopolymer compounds with the commercial name of BioComp®.

With two new ZSK extruders from Coperion, Sirmax Microtec expects to double its output of biocompounds beginning in early 2020. Coperion designed both ZSK 70 Mc18 twin screw extruders especially for production of bioplastics. These 70 mm screw diameter extruders are equipped with ZS-B side feeders and ZS-EG side devolatilization units.
