Color cosmetics are a fast-growing market, and rapid development of new, innovative products offers a distinctive advantage. That’s where tools for continuous processing can make a big difference.
A continuously operating twin-screw extruder helps to dramatically reduce development time for mascaras, eyeliners and eyeshadows in both powder and semi-solid forms. Once ready to manufacture, a continuously operating instrument also eliminates the risk of batch-to-batch variations.
Continuously operating twin-screw extruders provide excellent mixing and compounding capabilities for many applications including loose powders and compressed products. They facilitate homogeneous mixtures from different powder and liquid raw materials in just one process step. Processing temperature can be controlled along a wide range and in different zones, which helps control the viscosity of an entire mixture during processing.
