In almost any polymer process, we use lubricants so the plastic parts are more resistant to wear & tear. But surface damage and poor quality issues can appear despite adding lubricants. Well, this is generally the results of a poor wetting of lubricants during polymer processing. It can lead you to an increase in process issues, process stops, reject rate and other quality concerns.
Watch this tutorial and learn the ways to determine if a material will wet a substrate’s surface. Our specialist Paul Seemuth will share a fast screening test to select an improved lubricant package.
