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.

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.
