An Advanced High Flow PCABS for Improving Injection Molding Processes and Cycles 2001-01-0846
An advanced high flow PCABS was developed for improving the efficiency of injection molding processes and cycle times. Proprietary technology was used to develop this new blend while maintaining key properties (heat resistance and impact) necessary to meet end use part requirements. Significant rheological improvements in melt flow rate (MFR) and flow capabilities throughout the entire viscosity versus shear rate range were obtained. These improvements allowed for lower cooling times (21-27% reduction) and injection pressures. Molders using this resin have the potential to improve cycle times, improve processes, and save money.
This paper will document cycle time and process improvements in automotive instrument panel applications with the new high flow PCABS blend, PULSE*2000EZ.
