Extrusion coating lab improves production quality

Chevron Phillips Chemical Company (CPChem) recently added a new Davis-Standard stationary knife winder and roll changer to its extrusion coating laboratory in Bartlesville, Oklahoma.

This laboratory is a valuable tool in CPChem’s development of new resins to meet customers’ extrusion coating needs and demonstrates the company’s ongoing commitment to addressing these specific product requirements.

“The winder allows us to process production quality rolls that showcase the quality of products that can be produced from our full line of extrusion coating resins,” explains Kelly Frey of CPChem

Extrusion Coating Technical Service.

“Davis-Standard has the technical expertise to supply a winder that meets the extremely wide range of winding needs that our customers require.”

This winder offers full-speed starts and excellent winding capabilities designed for a diverse range of materials. The capability of CPChem’s extrusion coating line to apply resins extends to a variety of substrates from light gauge films and nonwovens to paper and heavy paperboard.

The new center/surface winder is part of Davis-Standard’s Black Clawson Converting Machinery QFP equipment line. CPChem’s lab line operates at speeds up to 1,800 feet per minute (550 meters per minute) and the winder supports finished diameter rolls up to 50 inches (1,200mm) on 3-inch (75mm), 6-inch (150mm) and 12-inch cores (300mm).
