Development of rough-finished plastic profiles using natural fibres
Development of a PVC compound material with organic fillers that adds a rough finish to the surface appearance of a product whilst maintaining its current performance.
During the project, the product requirements were determined, and the additives and natural organic fillers for the new formulation were selected. In addition, pellets were obtained in a pilot plant, optimising the filler incorporation systems, additives and mixing systems. Then, profiles were developed at pilot plant scale with the mixtures obtained and the pellets and profiles obtained were characterised.
