Polymer compounding plays an important role in the successful use of polymers. It helps to extend the properties of polymers such as durability, stiffness or thermal resistance so that these properties can be incorporated into an improved end-product. Several thousand of compounds currently used incorporate additives such as antioxidants, fillers or lubricants. Innovation is an essential element in polymer compounding with respect to the manufacture of increasingly sophisticated products such as polymer blends and composites. This book gives an idea of the productive area of polymer compounding.

Volume 2 focusses on manufacturing technology and processing and provides an overview of the basic and fundamental aspects of polymer compounding. This volume should interest students, scientists and engineers, and constitutes a reference text for the experimental polymer technologist. 

Written in a simple and accurate style this book can be understood even by the reader who is not familiar with polymer compounding. The book is also very informative and helps give an overall view of compounding. The figures are well organised with technical and economic considerations, as well as consideration of the problems associated with polymer compounding. Therefore, the book is distinctly quantitative in nature and designed to inspire a large audience of industrial and academic polymer scientists interested in the technology of polymer compounding.
