Let’s take the mystery out of rheology by showing how the wealth of information it provides can be used by processors to solve real-world production problems.
This new concept 3D prints a metallic endoskeleton, and then injection molds a polymer around that skeleton.
Polypropylene (PP) shortages have forced many processors to move to lower grade resins at the cost of lower performance and processability. Milliken’s DeltaMax Performance Modifiers upgrade these materials to enhance impact resistance, melt flow rates, and sustainability through the use of more recycled material. #sustainability #polyolefins
