THE SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY BEHIND SUPERIOR ENGINEERING PLASTICS

OVERVIEW

At STEER, we build advanced co-rotating materials platform technologies with precision engineering for a wide range of engineering plastics, from the basic variant to those created for specific applications and industries.

 

Whether it’s working with difficult-to-process plastics with high operating temperatures, viscosities and sensitivities or enhancing properties of commodity resins, creating high-end polymers known for strength, high temperature performance and structural properties, we ensure that you get the best possible quality, stability, strength and value.

 

SUPERIOR ENGINEERING PLASTICS

BETTER PROPERTIES. BETTER PERFORMANCE

 

STEER’s platforms and elements are the preferred choice of companies and manufacturers in over 35 countries across the globe. STEER materials platform technology is used to create a variety of advanced engineering plastics for a wide range of industries from automotive to electric, construction to food and packaging.

 

 

 

THE COMPOUNDING PROCESS

THE IDEAL PLATFORM FOR PROCESSING SUPERIOR ENGINEERING PLASTICS

 

The compounding process is a highly specialised one and STEER is a master specialist. We think through every possible detail when it comes to designing, creating and implementing platform technologies that give you the highest possible quality at the best possible value.

 

KEY POINTS FOR ENGINEERING PLASTICS PROCESSING

 

  • Can include extruder from 18mm to140mm in size
  • High volume screws with low shear attributes and a Do/Di of 1.5 or more is preferable
  • Feed materials are usually of a high bulk density
  • Compounding energy requirements vary significantly depending on the melt viscosity of the base resin and the content of reinforcements
  • Line configuration may be horizontal or vertical depending on manufacture volumes
  • Reinforcements are frequently added downstream, though filler levels are light to moderate.
  • A typical process section for engineering thermoplastics is 36D-40D in length.

 

 

THE TECHNOLOGY

STEER’s innovative co-rotating twin-screw extruder (TSE) platforms make the compounding process consistent, effective, efficient and scalable. Only STEER platforms are built using the revolutionary ‘Fractional-Lobe’ geometry, replacing the conventional integer-lobe design. This patented design screw geometry eliminates shear peaks, is self-cleaning and ensures that energy is transferred uniformly to the materials being processed. It creates significant improvements in product quality and provides manufacturers with the capability and control required to work with sensitive materials. Besides, this design reduces the energy consumed considerably, increasing overall efficiencies.
