Flashing in pure polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) and a blend containing PPS and liquid crystalline polymer (LCP) during injection molding was investigated by differential scanning calorimetry and scanning electron microscopy. The shape of the flash was observed by use of a projector. Flashing was detected in pure PPS and 90/10 PPS/LCP blend but was not found in other compositions, including pure LCP. The DSC thermograms of the flash revealed both exothermic and endothermic peaks at around 120° and 285°C.…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
