Continuous electron-induced reactive processing – a sustainable reactive processing method
The use of temperature sensitive reaction initiators leads to a coupling of the sub-processes material and heat transport as well as chemical reaction during reactive processing of polymer materials. Thus, the precise control of the desired chemical reaction is hindered due to this coupling of sub-processes. The electron-induced reactive processing uses the spatial and temporal precise initiation of the chemical reaction by high energy electrons. The precise process control enables the preparation of polymer materials with enhanced mechanical property level. With respect to future industrial applications, a continuously working process of electron-induced reactive processing was developed and tested.
The Journal of Plastics Technology is a peer reviewed internet periodical published under the auspices of the Scientific Alliance of Polymer Technology (WAK)
International Polymer Processing, the journal of the Polymer Processing Society, is a discussion forum for the world-wide community of engineers and scientists in the field of polymer processing.
The journal covers research and industrial application in the very specific areas of designing polymer products, processes, processing machinery and equipment.
The Journal of Plastics Technology is indexed in SCOPUS, the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature.
