New functional polymers are continuously taking over new applications in all areas. The compounding process is a decisive factor in development to ensure that the properties of the active ingredients meet the requirements. This seminar is concerned with the principles of compounding based on selected examples from the industry. A further focal point is the scale transfer from research and development to the production process (scale-up).

Target audience: Scientists, engineers, and experienced staff members from the polymer industry who are involved in the development and testing of new types of polymer compounds as well as their processing.

This webinar provides a complete introduction or refresher to modern twin-screw compounding:

  1. Definition and basics of twin-screw compounding
  2. Equipment solutions for lab-scale compounding
  3. Ancillary equipment used in extrusion and compounding
  4. Transfer from the lab to larger scale processing
