Compounding

With our longterm experience in the area of compounding and material development we are capable of solving different tasks in these fields.

  • Production of (highly) filled polymer compounds from small to semi-industrial scale
  • Development of materials with tailor-made property profiles
  • Mechanical, thermal and rheological characterization of polymer compounds
  • On- and in-line quality monitoring of compounding processes using NIR-spectroscopy
