The Recommended Processing tab of the Thermoplastics material dialog is used to specify the recommended processing conditions for the thermoplastics material.
Note Once an analysis is finished, you can check the ejection temperature, maximum shear stress and rate against the analysis results to determine if they are acceptable.
Note If a property name is shown in red, it indicates that the property has not been tested for this specific material. However, material data from the testing of a comparable generic grade was found to be suitable and has been assigned to this material.
|The temperature of the mold at the plastic-metal interface, where the plastic touches the mold.|
| The temperature of the molten plastic, or melt, as it starts to flow into the cavity.|
|The Mold Temperature area displays the range of mold wall temperatures that can be used for the material.|
|The Melt Temperature area displays the range of melt temperatures that can be used for the material.|
|The highest temperature recommended by the manufacturer for the material melt process settings.|
| The temperature at which a material is rigid enough to withstand ejection without permanent deformation or severe marking from the mold ejector pins.|
|Click this button to view the source of this material data, the date that the data was last modified, the date of testing and the test method that was used for the data.|
|The shear stress, specific for each material, beyond which material degradation starts to occur.|
| The shear rate value, specific for each material, beyond which material degradation starts to occur.|
