A detailed study of the effect of several extrusion variables was made on the rheological and thermal properties of Delrin I1 acetal homopolymer and Zytel 42 polyamide 66 materials. A 63.5 mm Davis Standard extruder was used to measure the effect of screw design, screw rpm, die and head pressure, and melt temperature on the rheology of acetal and nylon 66 resins. A single stage metering screw was used to determine the effect of screw geometry and viscous heating on the melt viscosity breakdown and the rate of…
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.
