Welcome to the Revolution of Foam Technology

Innovative twin screw extrusion lines for polyethylene and polypropylene production of very low and very high densities

New generation twin-screw extrusion lines

PE-PP Foam Sheet Extrusion Line – 100% Made in Italy

Extrusion Lines for making expanded, flexible, technical, ecologic, non cross-linked, low-density Polyethylene (PE) & Polypropylene (PP) film for small, middle and big productions, using “Direct Gasing” extrusion technology. 

Expanded materials produced are 100% recyclable and they are manufactured using technologies and production processes sensible to atmospheric pollution are not causing problems to ozone  and minimizing industrial wastes.

The Extrusion Lines developed and built by FAP in the last years have brought important innovations regarding the production of PE/PP foam.

The best standards:

Productivity, quality of final materials, non-waste production, low costs of production & electricity.

– In fact, there is a significant presence of the products based on FAP technology on the European market.
The newly developed machines by FAP manage to produce materials of higher quality and better density in comparison with the existing offer of the same product on the today’s market.
– The main range of application of the materials, produced on FAP lines: building, automotive, packaging industries.
– FAP has enlarged its range of technical solutions, so that currently it can design and build machines with a productivity starting from 50 up to 1500 Kg/h, obtaining very low density of 16 kg/m3 (PE expanded film) and of 30 kg/m3 (PP expanded film)

High technology:

The extrusion lines are based on twin-screw technology that allows a better control during the mixing process of the melt. The extruders are divided in areas with various temperatures and pressure levels and are equipped with dosing units with a high precision and fidelity. An accurate study and research of the construction and implementation of the electrical units has led to a remarkable energy saving method and thus to lower material costs. The FAP lines are designed to function 24h a day and therefore built with high quality materials, which are treated for long-life use and a handling with minimum issues.

Technical assistance:

FAP guarantees post-sale technical support for the successful management and maintenance, rapid supply of spare parts, immediate assistance by e-mail or by phone (9 am – 12 pm and 2 pm – 6 pm GMT+1, Monday to Friday) for any kind of support, concerning production, development of the product scale, etc.
