Precission and good surface parts, espacially for foodcontact
The listed values are recommendations. Higher values should be used for higher glass loadings. We recommend only de-humidifying or vacuum dryers. Extensive drying can cause filling problems and surface defects.

|Temperature zone 1 - Zone 4||270 - 290°C|
|Nozzle temperature||270 - 295°C|
|Melting temperature||270 - 290°C|
|Mold temperature||130 - 160°C|
|Holding pressure, spec.||300 - 800 bar|
|Back pressure, spec.||30 - 100 bar|
|Injection speed||medium to high|
|Screw speed||8 - 15 m/min|
Due to hydrolysis sensitivity of polyesters, a careful drying of the material before processing is very important. High residual moisture contents causes, in addition to surface defects, a decomposition of the molecular chains and thus reduced mechanical properties. If there are longer interruptions of the process, the cylinder temperature should be lowered. Furthermore, we recommend a thorough cleaning of the screw cylinder with extended dwell time or a material change. Glass-fiber-reinforced polyolefins (PE, PP) have established a particularly good cleaning effect.
