Agricultural & Membrane Films

When you think of agricultural (ag) films, think Davis-Standard. We offer extensive knowledge and proven solutions for large and wide blown film for a range of agricultural applications. There is no better extruder available for high output and low melt temperature than the MAC extruder with DSB®II feedscrew. This extruder, designed for blown film applications, leads to the best and most consistent melt quality (temperature uniformity to 2 degrees F and pressure variation <1%), which is necessary to achieve uniformity from large dies. The die systems can oscillate up to 1.2 meters in diameter or remain stationary up to 2.1 meters in diameter. These blown film systems produce controlled property films at wide widths with flat rolls.
