Polymer Is a “Blind” Product

Its tolerance can vary greatly between batch to batch and supplier to supplier. Today’s customers require accurate information allowing them to validate and adjust their process ensuring products they make meet or exceed their specifications.  Ensure you are receiving what you purchased before the material enters your process with the right polymer evaluation solution for your application.

How Rheological Data from a Capillary Rheometer Can Help to Have a Better Metal Injection Molding (MIM) Process?

One of the key factors in any MIM process is the flow behavior of the feedstock during filling of of the mold. In order to have a defect free molding process (without jetting, short shot, sink mark, crack, etc.) with desired mechanical strength (tensile, flexural, failure stress, etc.) in the final products, understanding of the rheological properties of the binder and feedstock is necessary

Measurements from Various Sensors in a Capillary Rheometer

Capillary rheometers are one of the most common types of analytical devices, used to analyze the flow properties of viscoelastic polymer materials under processing conditions. The Dynisco LCR7001 can utilize both load cell and pressure transducer simultaneously in order to produce information on both the force applied to the polymer sample and the resulting pressure at the die entrance.

Detecting Polymers in Material Products

It can be very difficult, if not impossible, to achieve complete indentification of most polymer products. However, in most cases, this is usually not needed; what is needed is the separation, or identification, of numerous molding materials whose identity has been lost, or an indication of the type of material used to create a component.
