Moldability diagrams for the filling and curing stages of a dicyclopentadiene (DCPD) based reaction injection molding (RIM) system were established based on a simplified engineering approach. Initial monomer temperature and filling time are the critical parameters for the filling stage whereas in the curing stage, mold wall temperature and demold time proved to be the main processing variables. The physical and thermal properties of the molded samples were examined and the results indicate that such …
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.
