BE’s new FlexSTACK SCD (Streamlined Coextrusion Die) is a low profile barrier film coextrusion die designed to provide optimal operational flexibility in resin selection and processing parameters. With a size reduction of approximately 50% over the original SCD and configurable from 5 – 11 (or more) layers, the FlexSTACK SCD is the most compact die of its kind. Its small size, combined with its streamlined distribution and spiral design, provide a very narrow Residence Time Distribution (RTD). The advantages of this very tight RTD are quick material transitions for reduced scrap, with minimal gel formation and carbon buildup. The FlexSTACK SCD is ideal for coextruding barrier films for food, medical and industrial packaging.
