Extrusion and moulding
SCOPIC offers compounding and masterbatching services utilising twin screw extruders. Test samples are produced in-house via injection or compression moulding.
Materials can be tested for colour, strength and efficacy quickly and easily with in-house extrusion and moulding. Sample runs of masterbatch can be formulated and supplied to you for your own testing, or development work can be carried out at our facility.
Melt flow index (MFI) is a measure of the ease of flow of the melt of a thermoplastic polymer during melt processing operations (injection moulding etc). It is defined as the mass of polymer flowing in a set time through a capillary when under a defined load and temperature. SCOPIC utilises an extrusion plastometer to be able to measure MFI and assess the effects on resins of additives, processing aids etc.
