The plastic of my brand new SPITFIRE Extruder looks worn out

The plastic cover in of our Spitfire extruders is the result of years of research on a very strong material that could resist in time at high-temperatures.

Today our extruders are manufactured in a specific technopolymer with very high performances charged with 50% of fiberglass. As a result, a Spitfire extruder can work for a longer time with high temperatures without melting or deforming. Also, this grants the possibility to assemble and disassemble it on the machine easily for its whole life.

These characteristics mean, for reasons due to injection molding, a matte and not-uniform finishing, with some whiter parts. These are the parts where the fiberglass is particularly dense on the surface.
