Rosehill: New extrusion line

Rosehill Polymers has built an extrusion line at its Sowerby Bridge plant in the UK to manufacture a TPV for use as a granular infill and topping for synthetic grass pitches and multi-use games areas. The project has taken more than two years to complete at a cost of EURO 2.2m. The investment covers material storage, extruder, ovens for online vulcanisation, cooling system and a series of different sized granulators. The company has already supplied its granulated TPV to a synthetic turf manufacturer in Spain for use in high specification projects. New FIFA regulations regarding synthetic pitches are being prepared and when adopted Rosehill said it expects to take full advantage of the new market conditions. The company claims its product has advantages over other materials used in these applications, such as recycled tyre rubber and EPDM.
