The main objective of the course is to understand the different concepts for the successful incorporation of fillers, pigments, additives or reinforcements in plastics and obtain the best possible properties in the final material.
• Identify the essential concepts for optimum blending in each compound.
• Determine the most appropriate equipment for each blending process.
• Be able to design a new blending process and control the most important parameters in the production of a compound.
• Optimization of production.
