KANSAI HELIOS Group has just expanded its production of coatings at two locations – Helios Coatings Italia and Helios Coatings Deutschland – using a Coperion twin screw extruder at each site. Two ZSK Mv PLUS extruders with 43 mm screw diameters for powder coating production were installed practically concurrently, one at the Riese Pio X location in the Venice region of Italy and the other at the Buchholz, Germany site. KANSAI HELIOS specifically decided upon Coperion's twin screw extruder technology, due to its very high dispersion performance, and its suitability to a very broad range of recipes. KANSAI HELIOS values how Coperion ZSK extruders fulfill very high quality requirements, as well as their efficient operation and flexible options when manufacturing powder coatings.

It does not decompose to halogenated products, nor does it emit irritating smoke or odors upon decomposition. LUVOGARD HF P70 also exhibits unique synergistic properties when combined with other flame-retardants. It is used to reduce or maybe even completely substitute the ATH amount.
