The HP-S series are compact coextrusion crosshead that can work in single layer with possibility of skin and stripes.

The head are totally made by highest quality of hardened steel with additional surface treatments which provides a micro-hardness > 1600 HV, high compound smoothness and wear resistance.

In order to process very high viscosity compound as well as ABRASIVE compounds, at high speed HP has developed the new generation surface treatment “HPT5X” UNIQUE in the market.

HPT5X is fully compatible with hardened base steel and developed to performing process of  High viscosity compound, even by smallest crosshead.


The new additional treatment together with high quality of steel provide:

  • Micro-hardness 1600< HV< 3000
  • Coefficient of friction up to 3 times lower than standard surface treatments
  • Higher chemical inertia which assure the highest compound smoothness
  • Highest material fluidity
  • Lower extruder power consumption,
  • Higher throughput
  • Lower compound over-heating
  • Lower working pressure
  • Longer life time
  • Up to 1500 Hours of salt-mist resistance

HP-S are manufactured by using latest generation of Automatic machine-tools which are guaranteeing tolerances in terms of microns.

The melt flow distributor as well as the rings for skin and stripes are accurately designed according to the rheology of the compounds to be processed.

The design and the compactness assure a lower residence time of the compound processed as well as an excellent flow distribution.


The head is properly dimensioned in terms of conicity, nominal diameter of the distributors, inner head body, feeding channels, distribution channels, barrier section and flow path, that together with surface treatments assure high production efficiency and excellent concentricity.

The distance between tip and die can be regulated by axial movement of the die and axial movement of the tip holder.

The special additional treatment, the lowest coefficient of friction as well as the strict tolerances assure an easiest tip holder movement and flow distributor extraction without using LEVER that can be dangerous for the operator safety.

The head can be equipped with telescopic support for the melt flow distributors.

The rings for skin and stripes are perfectly in terms of nominal diameter, feeding section, distribution section and barrier gap, in order to guarantee the perfect layer and skin distribution and lower working pressure, without material or colour stagnation.

  • micro-hardness 1600< HV< 3000,
  • High wear resistance and smoothness
  • High concentricity
  • Perfect layer and skin distribution
  • Higher Throughput
  • No Material and no colour stagnation
  • No Flow distributor or rings locking
  • No tip holder blocking
  • Lower extruder back-pressure


The head can work in:

  • Single layer
  • Coextrusion (Single layer + Skin/Stripes)

The rings for single layer or skin/stripe are placed into the front head body guaranteeing the compactness of the head. The rings can be easily and quickly assembled and dis-assembled and without removing the front head. The rings are properly designed for excellent flow distribution and perfect skin thickness distribution.


The head are available with different centring system.

  • Fixed centring
  • Manual centring from front with fast tools change
  • Manual/Fine centring from rear (Optional)


The gum space can be regulated by:

  • Axial die movement from front
  • Axial tip holder movement from rear.

The design, proper tolerance and treatments allow an easy and light movement of the tip holder without locking phenomena and without using lever that can be dangerous for the operator safety.


The head processes standard compound as well as high viscosity compounds (according to CPR).
