Blown and Cast Film Extrusion Course

Friday, August 26, 2022

October 4th - October 6th, 2022

Attendees will benefit by receiving a better understanding of film extrusion technology and the ability to use this information to improve existing film extrusion processes.

In this introductory-to-intermediate level course, participants will learn about common resins used, and equipment from the extruder through to the winder utilized in both Blown and Cast Film applications processes. In addition there will be discussions on troubleshooting problems such as occurrence of gels, and winding defects. Experts in the field will discuss commonly faced problems in the cast film and blown film industry. Please bring your questions to the class, as it is conducted in an interactive format with the attendees.
