Product Details Supplier Info More products

RTP’s Ultra Clean Compounding Center makes clean thermoplastic compounds for sensitive applications in medical, electronics and other industries.

The 3,300ft2 (305m2) self-contained centre has capacity for four lines and can produce almost any product in RTP’s portfolio.

Extrusion and post-extrusion operations (cooling, pelletising, classifying and packaging) are conducted inside a climate-controlled positive pressure environment with interlocks to limit access.

Extruders are fully automated with touch-screen controls that allow complete process monitoring and data acquisition.

Gregg Newby, global director of marketing and business development at RTP, said: ‘Compounds produced in our new facility are also ideal for applications that require extensive data recording and robust traceability of the manufacturing process.’ Stringent operating and finished product testing protocols are used to minimise any potential for cross contamination during manufacture.

Newby added: ‘Tighter control over the environment and specifications during manufacture results in more consistent compounds and eliminates sources of contamination.’ Initial demand for clean materials has been driven by the medical and electronics industries, but applications requiring improved cleanliness are quickly spreading to other industries where the cost of contamination in rejected parts is high.
