Eliminating Buildup in Blown Film Manufacturing – Recorded 5.13.2020

Watch ON-DEMAND

Presenter: William Bradley
The Blown Film Industry has evolved over the last several years with increased processing speed, new film substrates, and slip agents that bring unique properties. With these advancements, it is more difficult to control the web, there are increased film defects, and sometimes catastrophic web breaks, digging into your bottom line.

In this webinar, we’ll review the best practices to eliminate downtime and quality issues caused by buildup on rollers and loss of web traction.

Learn about:

  • Advanced polymer technology in dual layer coatings, increasing traction and overall control to your web
  • How to add crowns to existing rollers with engineered coatings, instead of having them ground into the roller
  • “Non-stick” surface of rollers, that reduce and even eliminate build up of debris and slip agents
  • How important it really is for your web to travel at the same speed as your roller
  • How long does a coating last? Why should I invest? What is the payback (ROI)?
