Abstract

The development of novel polymer formulations is a complex as well as time and resource consuming task. To address this problem, a prodn.-size twin-screw extruder with four additive feeding units was coupled with a flat film extrusion line to yield an integrated system for combinatorial compounding (CC) and high throughput screening (HTS). This allows the rapid synthesis of polymer formulations of varying compns. When coupled to fast characterization equipment, this set-up will allow the discovery of polymer formulations in a high-throughput manner. A no. of possible rapid materials tests for screening purposes are discussed.
