The SMN™ Injection Molding static mixer creates homogeneous mixing of polymer melt during injection. The resulting high viscosity plastic melt flow is homogeneous with regard to colorant, additives and temperature. The SMN™ (licensee of Bayer, AG) is part of our high performance X-GRID™ family of static mixers.
Outstanding melt flow mixing of molten polymer prior to injection results in the following benefits:
