Rubber co-extrusion is when rubber and plastic (or rubber) are mixed together through specific processing methods. Blends combine the properties of both rubber and plastic (or other rubber). The two materials co-extruded still maintain their respective characteristics. The main purposes of Rubber co-extrusion are as follows:
- Improve the performance of rubber.
- Improve the processing performance of synthetic rubber.
- Reduce costs.
- Determine the reasonable mixing process method.
- Development of new polymer materials.
