PVC granulates are further processed by a great variety of different methods, such as:
Important applications for thermoplastic granulates are in the production of reclaim and master batch materials.
A distinction is made between the pelletizing of PVC and of other polymers, due to their different characteristics. To produce PVC granulate, twin screw or planetary roller extruders are used in combination with a hot die face. For other thermoplastic materials, single screw extruders are combined with water ring, underwater or strand pelletizing systems.
