US extrusion sheet manufacturer Processing Technologies International (PTi) has sold a sheet extrusion system to Aserpet, based in Gaziantep, Turkey, a PET recycler and soon-to-be manufacturer of PET sheet roll stock. The recently completed sale is PTiís first in Turkey.

Aserpet, a recycler of PET flake for the packaging industry, purchased its first sheet extrusion line to help support the companyís entrance into the packaging industries. The PTicoextrusion system, which runs 750 kg/hour of PET, also includes a roll stand, winder, and stacker. The machine has been installed and is up and running at the Aserpet facility.

PTi sold the machine through its agent Kerem Anil with Plast-teknik in Istanbul. The company is exploring other business opportunities in Turkey, targeting PET, PP, PS, and barrier sheet extrusion systems for the packaging industry.
