Mixing PET+PE - which equipement should I use?

Mixing PET+PE - which equipement should I use?

(OP)
Good day!

I have a task at hand - to produce resin (small pellets) consisting of PET (90%), PE (5%) and compatibilizer (5%).

Which mixing equipment and technology should I choose?

Thanks in advance!

RE: Mixing PET+PE - which equipement should I use?

Banbury mixer and an extruder.

Good luck,
Latexman

Technically, the glass is always full - 1/2 air and 1/2 water.

Thanks, Latexman!
So, this way after mixing I will get some compound which should be put into extruding machine to make small very thin rods (D=3 mm). They will be cut into pellets which can be used to produce finished goods.
Am I getting you right?
