The Right Slats Make All the Difference For Your Extrusion Process In 2021

Slats serve an important purpose when it comes to blown film production, and choosing the right slat will improve bubble stability, improves overall film quality, and can increase overall output by as much as 5-10%. Selecting the right products for your production line has never been more important than in 2021 – read on to find out why!

Blown Film Extrusion Faced Serious Market Challenges In 2020

According to a report on the blown film extrusion market, COVID-19 and other challenges have caused serious disruptions in blown film production, particularly in China, the US, South Korea, and Germany, who are all major players in the market.

Disruptions to factory operations as well as the supply chain had major effects on the market in 2020, and despite vaccinations and global efforts to reduce the impact of COVID-19, it continues to spread in many countries.

Improving Your Production Process In 2021 Is Sure To Bring Big Benefits

Because of the challenges posed by COVID-19, smaller blown film producers have an opportunity to jump into the market and begin competing with larger firms whose operations have been seriously impacted.

A key element in taking advantage of this situation is improving the production process at your facility. To outcompete large firms, you need to make sure you and your team are creating high-quality, strong, and durable blown film that meets and exceeds customer expectations – and it may also be necessary to speed up your production process to meet demand.
