Plastics are probably the most versatile materials that human being has developed. This versatility is due in part to the ability of plastics to be mixed with a wide variety of substances that can give them new properties, such as: electrical and thermal conductivity, flame retardancy, foaming, transparency, impact resistance, rigidity, flexibility also including a possible cost reduction and future recycling.

In order to achieve these good properties, a correct mixing process is essential and this will depend on a current screw design, appropriate control process, the good selection of peripherals and the experience to solve the problems that appear during the compounds production.
