Improving the Quality of Plastic Products

December 13, 2011

Most thermoplastic resins are hygroscopic materials that must be sufficiently dried prior to injection molding. Desiccant dryers and ovens are widely used to dry resins, but how does an operator know that the material is dry enough? The answer: DEW POINT measurement. Without testing, end products are rejected and sent to the scrap heap. To avoid problems such as bubbles, splay, warpage, and... Read More
