Extrusion Compounding

Here at Aspen Materials, we are determined to provide superior quality custom plastic compounds to our customers. For this reason, we utilize  high quality twin-screw extrusion compounding technology.


Aspen Materials offers a highly versatile, scalable modular design for our extrusion compounding. This allows us to develop materials and production scale-up, from concept to commercialization. We start at the initial proof-of-concept on our lab scale equipment, and next go onto pilot scale trials. Once we finalize the exact plastic compound you are looking for, Aspen Materials can then manufacture the quantity you need.
We have three scales of twin-screw compounding available: 30mm, 58mm and 72mm. Aspen Materials has the flexibility to run small lot specialty compounds of just several pounds, to large scale commercial campaigns with a current capacity of 25 million pounds annually.
