2.3  Cylinder Temperature

Because the melting point of DURANEX® PBT is around 224°C,the appropriate resin temperature is from 250°C to 270°C. If the temperature exceeds 280°C, decomposition begins; therefore, a temperature around 270°C should be considered as the upper limit.

The effects of cylinder temperatures and residence time in the heated cylinder on mechanical properties of DURANEX 3300 and 3316 are shown in Fig. 1-4, 1-7 in the (a) and 1-8, 1-11 in the (b) It is a matter of opinion what value should be regarded as the limit but in Table 1-1, the longest allowable residence times are estimated from such points as the melt index rises to 2 times of its initial value and color difference more than 2.5 of their original levels.
