The Mixing/Preparation stage covers the preparation of the rubber material for further processing. There is currently limited information for this Production Stage and the process option can be used for all Rubber materials.
- Mixing, open mill, for rubber is the default selection and should be used unless there is no preparation step to mix the rubber compound. While the process is modeled as an open mill, it should remain selected regardless of mixing method. “None” should only be selected if there is no preparation and mixing process.
