Qatar's Doha Plastics adding WPC extrusion

Doha Plastics (Doha, Qatar) has entered into an exclusive licensing agreement with Strandex Corp. (Madison, WI) to use Strandex’s technology for extruding wood-plastic composite profiles across the Arabian Gulf region, including: Qatar, Bahrain, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Oman, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, and Yemen.
Doha operates a new 15,000-sq-m facility. The initial set up incorporates four 86-mm twin-screw conical extrusion lines supplied by Cincinnati Milacron along with a full blending and compounding system and a range of finishing options. Doha is developing its own range of profiles and will have an initial production capacity of 18,000 tonnes/yr. Doha’s $10-million investment incorporates not only the standard Strandex polyethylene-based technology but also the cellular foaming Strancel technology.—[email protected]
