Processing a PBT by twin screw extrusion : how to fix appropriate operating conditions by using numerical simulation

Processing a saturated polyester material This study has been performed by SCC with the support of Proplast, at the occasion of a specific workshop on twin screw extrusion issues, organized by Proplast, in Rivalta Scrivia (Italy). This practical shows the interest of using the numerical simulation for fixing appropriated operating conditions for processing a saturated polyester […]


Predicting glass fibers breakage during twin screw extrusion

Glass fibers are compounded with polymers to enhance their mechanical performance since the 1960′s. This performance improvement is depending on the fibers length. Indeed, the longer the fiber is, the more resistant the composite will be. As they are processed by twin screw extrusion, the key point of the process is to save the fibers […]
