KNOW HOW: EXPERT ADVICE
How the ‘Big 4’ commodity materials came to be.
In this series we delve into a discerning look back into the history of our industry and how we all got here.
You can forgo the elevated mold temperatures normally recommended for high-performance semi-crystalline materials. But it’s risky and likely to yield parts that under-perform expectations … assuming that they emerge from the annealing process looking anything like the drawing.
Don’t assume you know everything there is to know about PE because it’s been around so long. Here is yet another example of how the performance of PE is influenced by molecular weight and density.
How the development of new catalysts—notably metallocenes—paved the way for the development of material grades never before possible.
Injection molders of small fuel tanks learned the hard way that a very small difference in density—0.6%—could make a large difference in PE stress-crack resistance.
