Overview Melos Compounds - based polymer & base rubber

The properties of the base materials in Melos compounds can be modified as required. Our products are precisely tailored to your requirements.

Basic polymers

Our kneaders produce granules / pellets from a large range of compounds. Basic polymers and rubbers include the following:

  • EPDM - Ethylene propylene rubber
  • SBR - Styrene butadiene rubber
  • NBR - Nitrile rubber (Buna-N)
  • NR - Natural rubber
  • IIR - Butyl rubber
  • BIIR - Bromobutyl rubber
  • CR - Chloroprene rubber
  • EAM - Ethylene acrylate rubber
  • EVM - Ethylene vinyl acetate rubber
  • PE - Polyethylene: HDPE, LDPE, LLDPE, VLDPE 
  • PP - Polypropylene
  • EVA - Ethylene vinyl acetate copolymers
  • Thermoplastics, polyolefin copolymers
  • SBS, SEBS (styrene block copolymers)
  • PIB – Polyisobutylene
  • Others

Mineral fillers

Gently blending in large amounts of material is one of the strongpoints of our machines. We use a whole variety of mineral fillers to obtain the desired properties or cut costs.

  • Chalk
  • Talcum
  • Barytes
  • Kaolin
  • Carbon black (grades with low to moderate reinforcement)
  • Others


The use of plasticizers is also essential when processing various rubber blends:

  • Paraffin oils, including white oil
  • Paraffin 
  • Polymer and phosphoric plasticizers
  • Others


Many compounds naturally also require pigments, additives and other added materials to maintain their appearance and durability:

  • Colours (as batch/pigment)
  • Additives
  • Processing aids
  • and other added materials
