How can we test the properties of Plastic?
The plastic material is one of the most renowned material to be used in almost all industries. When it is involved in so much of applications such as aerospace, domestic application, automotive industry, and packaging material. When you participate in so much of verticals you have to be of best quality. Now which are the properties are we need to keep the focus on. So there are many things which we need to understand first. In this post, we will learn more about the role of MFI tester
in testing the quality of Plastic.
Now let’s first discuss the properties which we need to think about are melting properties. Now, what is so interesting about that? Well, the important point is about melt flew properties that it is the base model of everything plastic belongs to. The MFI machine tells you the MFI value of a polymer and this value is important for the categorization. Based on the filtration the polymer material is next selected for other application. Some industry wants their plastic to be inflexible nature so that they can be easily moulded and some want them to be tough. So you see the distinct mode of difference generates distinct needs.
Melt Flow Index Tester is made by following the international and national standards. It has a cylindrically shaped barrel for heating the polymer. Weights are offered to put a specific amount of weight while the testing is on. And there is special facility equipped which is the automatic cutter of sample flown in 10 minutes of time. After which the cut out sample is weighed and the MFI index is calculated. This value will mark the quality of the polymer substance. It is not that the MFI should be high or low it should be as per the requirement of customers.
