Internal Mixer--Configuration and Design. Processing Aspects of Rubber Mixing. Mixing Characteristics of Polymers in an Internal Mixer. Internal Mixer--A Reaction Vessel. Effect of Process Parameters on Product Properties. Dispersion and Distribution of Fillers.


It is a characteristic of the rubber industry that compounds are usually not bought from a supplier but compounded in an in-house mixing facility. The different mixing technologies add yet another degree of freedom to the tailoring of compound properties.

This book covers the major aspects of rubber compounding. For the first time, the reader finds all relevant issues--whether it is machine design, process technology, or material parameters--covered in one comprehensive volume.
