A line for the production of multilayer sheets in recycled PET from post-consumer waste intended for food packaging has been sold by Union to a Middle Eastern converter. The line can reach a production up to 1,500 kg per hour, is designed to be fed in particular with recycled material and allows obtaining sheets with transparency and brilliance comparable to that obtained with virgin material.
The line features two extruders and a new filtration system capable of retaining even the smallest impurities present in the melt. The coextrusion head and block allow for different configurations and number of layers. The line is completed by a 5-cylinder horizontal automatic calender which allows thicknesses from 0.15 to 1.6 mm to be obtained.
