Thermoplastic materials find application in the most varied sectors, from construction and aeronautics, to medical and food, through telecommunications and agriculture. Each thermoplastic material has its own specific characteristics that make it more or less suitable for a specific use and which must be taken into consideration during the feasibility analysis of a project.


In the technical data sheets of the thermoplastic materials, provided by the producers of the same, there are information indispensable to correctly identify which is the most suitable material for a specific purpose, as well as its functionality and the type of process through which the material can be transformed.


The data contained in the technical data sheets, which describe all the behaviors (rheological, mechanical, thermal, electrical, optical and environmental conditions) of the materials, are the result of the laboratory tests to which they are subjected through the use of dedicated machines and tools.


For this purpose, a small laboratory plant (small extruder, water or air-cooled downstream, haul-off, cutting unit or granulator), such as the one recently supplied by Friul Filiere, can prove to be very useful.

It allows, in a simple and fast way, the extrusion in small batches without wasting either material or – above all – time. Effective for the realization of the “test tubes” on which to perform analyzes such as traction, bending, hardness, etc. and to extrude mixtures of materials in granules, it has as main feature the maximum flexibility in changing components of the die and allows the extrusion of different products in a few actions.

The laboratory plant finds its ideal location inside universities, where students can have the opportunity to see their theoretical knowledge applied, carrying out direct tests and knowing the behavior of the various materials through experience.
