Increase Productivity and Save Money with Performance Additives

Published on March 22, 2017


This webinar, presented by W. Mark Stewart, Sr., Technical Service Representative for HEXPOL Compounding, will address when and how to use performance additives. If properly selected, they bring value and clear benefits to the application, addressing manufacturing and process concerns to help maintain quality and consistency during compounding.

A systematic approach to performance additive selection should be used to define objectives, such as: better throughput, precise control of critical ingredients, lower costs with shortened mixing cycles, timely and complete dispersion, worker safety, and color control, to name a few. The webinar will also address different performance additive types, as well as manufacturing and cost benefits. Specific examples will highlight where performance additives bring exceptional value.
