DS8000 Products Engineered for Abrasive and Corrosive Compounds
(Pawcatuck, Conn.)--Davis-Standard, LLC recently added to its bi-metallic barrel lining product series to support applications with highly abrasive and corrosive properties. The new DS8000 wear resistant barrel lining material is a nickel based alloy with a high percentage of tungsten carbide particles suspended within its matrix. This corrosion and abrasive wear resistant lining is recommended for those processes requiring highly filled or reinforced compounds, high-temperature resins, silicones, vinyl resins, polyethylenes, LLDPE, HMWPE and blends.
Davis-Standard also offers three other options within this product line, the DS1000, DS2000 and DS6000. The DS1000 is an iron based barrel lining for general purpose wear environments and is fitted in nearly all Davis-Standard machines as a standard item. Similar to the DS1000, the DS2000 alloy provides additional wear resistance being able to accommodate a higher degree of filler or reinforcement in the material to be processed and also a moderate degree of corrosion resistance. The DS6000 is nickel based like the DS8000 and is designed for use in corrosive wear environments when processing compounds such as those with flame retardants, fluoropolymers and high-temperature resins.
This product line is manufactured by D-S Brookes Limited, Davis-Standard's Extrusion Systems Europe subsidiary in the UK. For more information, contact Mark Woodgate at firstname.lastname@example.org or John Radovich at email@example.com.
