KNOW HOW: EXPERT ADVICE
PAI is a material capable of achieving levels of performance that even semi-crystalline engineering polymers like PEEK, PPS, and PPA cannot. But you have to be willing to work for that performance, and the annealing process is an essential part of this.
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.
For these polymers, annealing is done to establish a level of crystallinity that cannot be practically obtained within the parameters of a normal molding cycle. Here’s some guidance on setting annealing time and temperature.
Don’t be afraid to increase mold temperature to improve part quality when making PC parts. Take a look at a few examples here.
An often overlooked factor in optimizing the ductility of PC is the rate at which the polymer is cooled in the mold.
In the final part of this five-installment series, we bring DMA to a practical level using the results for glass-filled nylon.
