short shot

Short shot refers to incomplete filling of a mold cavity which results in the production of an incomplete part due to the insufficient plastic fluidity. The main causes are the inappropriate injection pressure and speed (including excessive pressure loss caused by resistance), which are mainly affected by the following aspects: I. Injection Molding Machine: (1) … Read more

PVC injection molding plastic resin

By Jackie | November 13, 2019 | 0 Comments

PVC plastic is a heat-sensitive material that features a poor injection moldability, for which the reason is that an excessively high melt temperature or an excessively long heating time easily causes PVC decomposition. Therefore, the key to molding the PVC products lies in the control of the melting temperature. The heat sources for melting the … Read more
