Two high density polyethylene resins—801 and 802— are examined with regard to their isothermal, time‐dependent, and nonisothermal swelling properties when emerging from two annular and three diverging dies. The short time swelling characteristics of samples 801 and 802 are very important for these dies, resulting in a lower diameter swell for the latter, independent of the die geometry or flow rate. Output variations have much less impact on the swelling behavior than small changes in the geometry 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.
