During compounding we use our co-rotating twin-screw extruders to adapt material properties to the requirements of further processing and in particular the final product. Research topics in the field of compounding and extrusion include:

  • Process development - to allow completely new mixing processes with twin-screw extruders
  • Material development - to generate improved material properties on the basis of new material

In many cases these two elements are equally important in our work.
