Specialized course on extrusion compounding of plastics: material selection, additives, equipment, applications. Gain in-depth knowledge for diverse industries.
Extrusion compounding of plastics is a specialized course designed to provide the trainees with an in-depth understanding of the extrusion compounding process used in the production of plastic materials. The course covers a range of topics related to the manufacturing process, including material selection, polymer science, additive formulations for popular materials such as PVC, PP, PA, PET, etc., equipment, processing parameters, and applications. Throughout the course, you will learn about the principles of extrusion compounding and how to effectively combine multiple materials into a single homogeneous mixture using an extruder. We shall also explore various types of additives, such as fillers, stabilizers, and pigments, and how to incorporate them into the compounding process to enhance the properties of the final product. In addition, the course provides an overview of the various types of extrusion compounding equipment, including twin-screw, single-screw, co-rotating, and counter-rotating extruders. The course also covers the applications of extrusion compounding, including the production of high-performance thermoplastics, engineered plastics, and composite materials. Students will learn how to design and optimize the compounding process to achieve the desired properties for specific applications, such as strength, stiffness, durability, and flame retardancy. Overall, the extrusion compounding of plastics course provides you with the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in a range of industries, including automotive, aerospace, construction, and consumer goods. Upon completion of the course, you will be able to apply their knowledge in real-world scenarios and make meaningful contributions to the field of plastic material compound manufacture.
