Manipulating the orientation at end of fill

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

Abstract

Orientation of polymer chains has been shown to have a major effect on component properties. The chain orientation at the end of fill of a component is different from most other areas. Overflows have been used in various areas of the plastics industry to improve weld line strength and provide a more consistent gas channel in gas-assist molding. This study will investigate if the use of overflows to change the orientation of the polymer chains provides a more capable molding condition.
