In order to reduce the frozen‐in orientation, which is usually present in injection molded products, the effect of high‐performance mold surface heaters was investigated. The heaters are capable of changing their surface temperature by 70°C within a few tenths of a second typically, which minimizes their effect on the cooling time. The effects of the heating time, the instant of heating, and the heating power on the birefringence distribution of a polystyrene resin were studied. Reductions of the bir…
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.
