Processing Guidelines
Material Handling
Max. Water content: 0.02%
Ultrason pellets can absorb moisture very rapidly and must be dried before processing. A vacuum or dry air oven operating at 130-150C (266-302F) is recommended. Circulating air ovens are unsuitable. Drying time is dependent on moisture level, however the materials must be dried at least 4 hours. Further information concerning safe handling procedures can be obtained from the Safety Data Sheet. Alternatively, please contact your BASF representative.

Typical Profile
Melt Temperature 350-390C (662-734F)
Mold Temperature 140-180C (284-356F)
Injection and Packing Pressure 35-125 bar (500-1500 psi)

Mold Temperatures
Injection pressure controls the filling of the part and should be applied for 90% of ram travel. Packing pressure affects the final part and can be used effectively in controlling sink marks and shrinkage. It should be applied and maintained until the gate area is completely frozen off.

Back pressure can be utilized to provide uniform melt consistency and reduce trapped air and gas.

Fast fill rates are recommended to ensure uniform melt delivery to the cavity and prevent premature freezing. Surface appearance is directly affected by injection rate.
