Injection Molding: You Must Dry Hygroscopic Resins

Injection Molding: You Must Dry Hygroscopic Resins

Dec 23, 2010 Polycarbonate, nylon, PBT, PET, ABS, acrylic, urethanes, and many other hygroscopic resins are long-chain polymers, as are polyethylene, polystyrene, etc. Hygroscopic resins contain carbon and hydrogen but, also have a “polar” segment of atoms that behave like a small magnet with north and south poles—i.e., positive and negative charges.

Food drying in the oven usually requires low heat; in fact, some soft foods may only require the heat from the gas pilot light to dry properly. Generally, oven temperatures should be low, if possible, at 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Higher than this and food will more likely cook instead of dry out. Keep the oven door slightly open while drying out ...

How It Works. After absorbing moisture from the air, the water molecules are bound to the polymer chains of filaments. The PrintDry filament dryer uses heat to cause the molecules in the filament to move more vigorously and this weakens and breaks the bond of water molecules from the polymer chains and permits water molecules to move freely.

The difference in temperature, or variance, must fall with what we call the 10-10-5 rule. The first 10 applies to the 10 locations on the sheet where temperature must be known: the four corners and center of both sides. The next 10 refers to the fact that the temperature must not vary more than 10F on any of the 10 sheet locations.
