Gamma Meccanica - Special Lines and Machinery for XPS Boards
Gamma Meccanica S.p.A. produces special lines and machinery for extruded polystyrene boards with particular characteristics for online or off-line production.
Examples of special lines and machinery for the production of:
- boards with non standard dimensions (width, length and thickness)
- boards for roofing applications with sub-tile strips
- boards coupled with rigid products (gypsum plasterboard, wood etc ..)
- boards coupled with flexible products (aluminum, film, etc. ..)
- boards for the prefabrication of walls or roofs
Gamma Meccanica S.p.A. can supply a special system to introduce the flame retardant in the extruder, in liquid form.
This technology allows to reduce costs in the production of XPS boards containing a % of flame retardant; in two different ways:
- allowing to buy the flame retardant in a cheaper form than granules,
- ensuring a better mix of the components in the melt, and consequently the possibility to use less % of it at the same test parameters,
Both improvements will allow to save money in production cost.
