Notes

“Reactive extrusion (REX) is a polymer processing technique that mainly involves the use of an extruder as a chemical reactor. Polymerization and other chemical reactions associated with polymers are carried out in situ, while processing is in progress. Therefore, REX differs from conventional polymer manufacturing methods, where synthesis is a separate operation and the extruder serves only as a processing aid. REX is receiving increased attention as a commercial technique because of its several advantages, which include lower cost and versatility. This entry includes various aspects of REX, as well as a discussion of interpenetrating polymer networks, which are some of the products of REX operations.” (Encyclopedia of Chemical Processing, Reactive Extrusion, 8/16/2012)
