Situation
•TPV compounder having inconsistent feeding of additives with various bulk densities and different particle sizes
•Blend segregates in the feed hopper
•Labour intensive with premixing and post-blending

PolyAd Services investigation
•Customer would premix additives in a barrel and roll the barrel to mix additives
•Customer must re-blend extrusion to get a homogenous mixture
•Quality problems with incomplete reaction

Solution provided
•Dust free feedable form will provide a homogenous extrusion

Value for the customer
•Dust reduction
•Reduced use of labour force for production run
•Improved quality of compound through precise control of additive dosing
•Improved throughput by elimination of post-blending step
