In order to investigate all the effects of the processing parameters on the mixing properties without having to do a number of experiments, the statistical tool, called response surface methodology (RSM), has been used. This technique has the capability to evaluate all the effects of the parameters on the responses, which include linear, non-linear and interaction effects.

Processing promoters (additives) improve the efficiency of compound mixing and processing, and facilitate complex manufacturing processes.
Processing additives influence the whole production process, from compounding to the finishing of the rubber article.
