With the wood fully encapsulated in the plastic, maximum vacuum can be drawn at the vent zone to effectively devolatilize the melt without drawing dry wood fiber through the vacuum system.
TGA experiments show also that oil shale does not devolatilize completely until temperatures of about 540([+ or -] 10) [degrees]C are reached.
Twin screw extrusion systems are said to continuously mix and devolatilize polymers with fillers and additives in combination with direct wire coating extrusion.
The temperature throughout the extruder was maintained at 180[degrees]C for zones 1-3, to thoroughly devolatilize the extrudate.
