Rheology, Compounding and Processing of Filled Thermoplastics

  • P. R. Hornsby
Chapter
Part of the Advances in Polymer Science book series (POLYMER, volume 139)

Abstract

The influence of fillers on the rheology of polymer melts is reviewed, together with an account of mechanisms involved during their combination in melt-mixing procedures. The application of these principles to the design and operation of industrial compounding technologies is then discussed. Means for inducing further microstructural changes during secondary melt processing are described, leading to the achievement of enhanced composite performance.
