EVAL™ Processing / Basics / Extrusion Temperature

Extrusion Temperature

When processing any polymer, it is important to obtain a homogeneous, completely melted and well-mixed mass at a uniform temperature. Moreover, the temperature has to be well controlled to minimise thermal decomposition of the processed polymer.

Although EVAL™ resins have a good thermal stability, it is important to control the melt temperature and the residence time because they will have an effect on the quality of the produced structure.

These parameters do not only have to be taken into account for the machine design but also for the processing settings.
