Thermoset Plasticator

Trinks Inc.

The Trinks Inc. Plasticator is a screw type pre-plasticating unit that was designed and built to preheat and preform thermoset materials such as BMC, Epoxy, and Phenolic for transfer or compression molding. The preheater combines two steps, preforming and preheating the material into one step and delivers very accurate shot sizes. Plasticating the material results in molding cycles that are more consistent and produces molded parts with higher quality.
