Brett Martin makes high-quality specialty plastic products for the building construction, manufacturing, printing, roofing and display industries. In terms of PVC, PMMA and PC, the group offers a vari-ety of customised products, ranging from light domes for London’s Wembley Stadium and protective shields for typhoon-resistant McDonald’s signs.
In its production plant, Brett Martin already operates several extru-ders from battenfeld-cincinnati and claims to be very satisfied with their performance. “We were particularly impressed by the outstan-ding flexibility of this extruder, which enables us to produce PVC sheet with a wide range of thicknesses from 3.0 to 25 mm”, said Technical Director at Brett Martin Ltd, David Robinson. In addition to its wide processing window, this counter-rotating extruder is said to offer high output, robust design and easy operation. With its closed-loop, self-regulating Intracool screw tempering system and its effi-cient air power cooling barrel cooling system, the extruder has been designed to offer constant melt temperatures and high standards in product quality.
