Role of Melt Flow Index Testing Machine in Polymer Industry

In polymer industry, while setting a new lab, the first instrument which is likely to be considered by the plastics moulders is the Melt flow index testing machine. Also known as an extrusion plastometer in more technical language, this apparatus is utilized to calculate the melt-flow rate or mass-flow rate (MFR) of pure and compounded thermoplastic resins.

With the rising competition comes the constant pressure on plastics manufacturers to comply with required quality standards. Thus, the use of polymer testing instruments has been increased to evaluate incoming material and test finished products. The melt-flow index test calculates one point on the viscosity curve under the standard conditions.Read Full Article...
