Most rubber polymers have limited commercial value in their original state. Therefore, a compound “recipe” must be developed to enhance or add to a polymer’s inherent physical and chemical characteristics and to ensure efficient molding or extruding. In creating the proper recipe, a compounder needs to be aware of a number of chemical or technological factors:
The customer’s technical specifications
Individual polymer properties
Additives that can alter price, processing and Vulcanizing/curing systems
Testing/quality assurance methods
