An upcoming Extrusion Minitec focusing on the extrusion of thermoplastic composites will demonstrate how much things have changed in this field. The explosion of wood fibre/plastic composites in the 1990s has sparked further research into alternative low-cost fillers for extruded thermoplastics.
The one-day Minitec presented by SPE Ontario will cover talc, mica, calcium carbonate and reactive fillers, as well as screw design, process simulation and market trends.
The event takes place March 17 at the Delta Toronto Airport West hotel. It will be followed by SPE Ontario’s regular dinner meeting and Industry/University Night.
