Pelletizing of PVC and other polymers

Plastics pelletizing – PVC and thermoplastic materials

Granulates are raw materials for a great diversity of plastics processing applications and methods, for example, they are processed into high-quality injection-molded, blowmolded or extruded products. The pelletizing process serves to prepare the various raw material components, such as plastics, fillers and additives. By means of pelletizing, these product are melted, blended and homogenized. The resulting granulates are ready-to-use semi-finished products that facilitate further processing. Some important quality criteria for granulates are residual moisture, consistent bulk density, low dust content and uniform homogeneity. The advantages of granulates compared to powder are higher operational safety, uncomplicated storage and clean, dust-free processing.

A basic distinction must be made between PVC pelletizing and pelletizing of other polymers, since both groups of materials have different characteristics which influence the pelletizing process.
