The non-isothermal crystallization of Fortron poly(pheny1ene sulfide), PPS, was examined to better understand its behavior during injection molding. The nonisothermal Avrami formalism was applied to this system, but this method was found to be questionable because of the sometimes severe curvature that appears in the plots of the transformed data. A method of ranking crystallization rates at low cooling rates by plotting the peak in the crystallization exotherm versus the cube root of cooling rate has been co…
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.
