PET plastics introduction
PET chemical name is called Polyterephthalate alcohol ester, also known as polyester. As we know, most customers prefer the GF-PET, it mainly focuses on the bottles preform.
The rheological property of PET is better in the melting state, and the consequence of pressure on the viscosity is larger than that of the temperature. Therefore, the flow of the melted material property is changed mainly by the pressure.
PET features & properties
The glass conversion temperature of PET is about 165℃, and the temperature range of the material is 120~220℃. PET has strong horoscopes at high temperatures. For glass fiber-reinforced PET materials, bending deformation is very easy to materialize at high temperatures.
The crystallization of the material can be improved by adding a crystalline reinforcing representative. Crystal-clear products made with PET have glossiness and heat distortion temperature. Special additives such as mica can be added to PET to minimize the bending deformation. If lower mold temperature is used, crystal-clear products can be obtained by using non-filled PET materials.
Injection molding process
The injection molding method is used to enhance the molding of PET. A screw-type injection machine is usually used. The screw usually needs to be hardened to avoid rasp after long-term use. The length of the nozzle hole of the injection machine should be as short as possible, and the diameter of the injection machine should be controlled at around 3mm.
The melting point of the enhanced PET is up to 260 ℃. To avoid the nozzle clogging, a higher power heater should be installed. In addition, the tip of the nozzle hole is best processed as a reverse cone as shown in figure -1, so that the molten material in the flow channel and the nozzle can be cut off comfortably.

Injection molding is used to enhance the molding of PE. PET can only be molded by a screw-type injection molding machine in general. It is the best option to choose a mutant screw with a reverse ring at the top, which has a large surface hardness and scratch resistance, and the ratio of the length to diameter ratio not L/D = (15~20):1 compression is about 3:1.
About PET Injection Molding Machine
L/D too large materials stay in the barrel for too lengthy, extreme heat can cause degradation and affect the performance of products. The compression ratio is too small to produce less heat, easy to plasticize, and has poor performance. If we see on, on the other hand, the fracture of glass fibber will be more, and the mechanical properties of the fibber will be reduced. When the glass fiber-reinforced PET is reinforced, the inner wall of the barrel is badly worn out, and the barrel is made of wear-resistant material or lined with wear-resistant material.
As the nozzle is short, the inner wall requires polishing and the cleft is as large as possible. The hydraulic brake valve-type nozzle is suitable. The nozzle should have heat maintenance and temperature control analysis to ensure that the nozzle will not be frozen and blocked. But the nozzle temperature is not too high, otherwise, causes salivation. The low-pressure PP material must be used before starting the molding, and the barrel is cleaned.
How to learn the processing method of PET plastic?
The PET macromolecule consists of a lipid base and has unreliable hydrophilicity, the pellets are sensitive to water at high temperatures. When the moisture content beat the limit, the molecular weight of PET decreases and the products are colored and crisp. At this moment, the material must be dried before processing. The drying temperature is 150, 4 hours, which is usually 170, 3-4 hours. The air–ejection method is used to test whether the material is completely dry.
Due to the short time of PET, after melting point and high melting point, it is fundamental to choose an injection system with more temperature control section and less self-heating when plasticizing, and the actual weight of the product cannot be less than 2/3 of the machine injection volume. According to these requirements, in previous years, Ramada has developed a small and medium-sized series of PET special plasticizing systems. The clamping force is selected by more than 6300t/m2.
PET bottle embryo is molded by hot runner mold. The insulation board between the mold and injection molding machine is best insulated with a 12mm thickness, and the heat insulation plate will withstand high pressure. The exhaust must be abundant to avoid partial overheating or fragmentation, but the depth of the exhaust port is generally not more than 0.03mm, otherwise, it is easy to produce the fly edge.
The melting temperature can be calculated by the air ejection method. At 270-295 ℃, the improvement level GF-PET can be set to 290-315℃.
The main injection speed is faster, which counters the early solidification of the injection. But too fast, the high shear rate makes the material weak. The ejection usually takes 4 seconds to complete.
The lower the better, so as not to wear. Generally, not more than 100bar. It is usually not used.
Do not use too long detention time to prevent the decline of molecular weight. Try to escape the temperature above 300 ℃. If the shutdown is less than 15 minutes. It is only required to do air – fire treatment; if it is more than 15 minutes, the viscosity PE should be purified and the barrel temperature is decreased to PE temperature until the machine is reopened.
If the mold temperature control is not good enough or the material temperature control is extreme, it is easy to produce “white and opaque”. The mold temperature is low and constant, the cooling speed is fast, the crystallization is less, and the product is transparent.

- 1, the temperature of the barrel.
The forming temperature range of PET is narrow, and the temperature will directly affect the performance of the product. If the temperature is too low, it is not good to make plastic parts, depression, and lack of material defects; on the contrary, if the temperature is too high, it will cause a spill, nozzle salivation, deep color change, the decline in mechanical courage, even cause mortification. Generally, the barrel temperature is controlled at 240~280℃, and the barrel temperature of glass fiber reinforced PET is 250~290℃. The temperature of nozzles should not exceed 300 ℃, and the temperature of nozzles is generally lower than that of barrel temperature.
- 2, Mold temperature
The mold temperature has a direct consequence on the cooling rate and crystallinity of the melt, the crystal is disparate and the properties of the plastic parts are different. Generally, the mold temperature is controlled at 100~140℃. When the thin-walled plastic parts are formed, it is desirable for a small value; when the thick-wall plastic parts are formed, it is desirable to have a large value.
- Injection pressure
The adaptability of PET melts is good and accessible to be formed. Medium pressure is normally used, pressure is 80~140MPa, and the injection pressure of glass fiber reinforced PET is 90~150MPa. The assurance of injection pressure should acknowledge the viscosity of PET, the type and amount of filler, the location and size of the gate, the shape and size of the plastic part, the mold temperature, the type of injection molding machine, and so on.
