Processing advice Pocan (Injection molding)

The following information applies when the product is processed by injection molding. If other processing methods, such as extrusion, are used, then the parameters can differ considerably from the figures given here.


Care must be taken to ensure that the pellets are processed in a sufficiently dry state.

Permitted residual moisture content0.02%  
Drying temperature120 °C120 °C120 °C
Drying timeDry air dryer
1 - 4 h
Fresh air dryer
2 - 3 h
Circulating dryer
4 - 8 h


The figures given are, if not mentioned otherwise, valid for standard grades without flame retardancy additives. The melt temperature for the easy-flow grades will generally be selected from the lower end of the range and the melt temperature for grades with poor flow from the upper end of the range.
