Reactive extrusion is a very versatile technology that allows polymerisation reactions and polymer modification to be carried out using an extruder, usually a corotating twin-screw extruder, which is normally used to obtain compounded materials.

In reactive extrusion, the extruder is used as a horizontal chemical reactor, in which properties of polymers and polymer compounds can be synthesised, modified and improved. For example: to give adhesion to different substrates, to make polymer blends compatible with fillers or fibres, to perform cross-linking reactions or controlled degradation of polymers, etc.

This course will review the reactive extrusion process, and the advantages of its application in the plastics industry, mainly in the synthesis and modification of polymers.

Methodology

  • A webinar is an online web-based meeting where participants can see what speakers display in their screens and listen to their explanations. Webinars are made in real time and on a specific date and hour and their main characteristic is interactivity between the teacher and the attendees. Attendees only need a computer with active audio and Internet connection to interact with the teacher by using the chat.
