Technical Details & Test Data

Extrusion Guidelines
  1. Melt Viscosity vs. Temperature
    Melt Temperature: 194°C (381°F)
    Two key factors affect the melt viscosity (stiffness or fluidity of the melt) :
    1. The molecular weight (MW) of the resin: Higher MW resins will have a higher melt viscosity than lower MW resins.
    2. Temperature of the melt for any given MW resin: Higher process temperatures will provide a more fluid melt viscosity than lower process temperatures.
       
  2. Typical Barrel Profile for Cast Films
    Barrel : 230-260°C (446-500°F)
    Adapter : 260-266°C (500-510°F)
    Die : 260°C (500°F)
    Process Melt Temperature : 240-260°C (464-500°F)
     
  3. Typical Barrel Profile for Tubular (Blown) Films
    Barrel : 246-254°C (474-490°F)
    Adapter : 260°C (500°F)
    Die : 254°C (490°F)
    Process Melt Temperature : 240-260°C (464-500°F)
     
  4. Screw Parameters
    Metering Section : 40%
    Transition Section : 3 to 4 flights
    Feed Section : Balance of screw length
    Compression Ratio : 3.5:1 to 4.0:1
    L/D Ratio : 24:1

Packaging & Availability

Packaging Type

Storage & Handling

Storage Information

Store in original container. Keep containers tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place.

Material Handling

Aegis® H95C1ZP copolymer is supplied in sealed containers and drying prior to processing is not required. However, higher moisture is the primary cause of processing issues. If drying becomes necessary, a dehumidifying or desiccant dryer operating at 80°C (176°F) is recommended. Drying time is dependent on moisture level. More information about safe handling procedures can be obtained by requesting the Safety Data Sheet.
