I own plastic injection machine and make automotive cable parts
I used POM material and everything was good. Now with PA6 AND PA 66, there are problems.
See the picture:
The part formed containing bubbles, and I’d like a solution to this problem .
PA6 needs drying for AT LEAST 4hrs @ 80°C. Start the time from when the bulk is actually up to temperature.
If still foaming, continue drying. I would suggest you dry for at least 8hrs until you know your dryer performance - if it’s just a hot air dryer, I would strongly recommend you invest in either a dessicant or vacuum dryer. You’ll soon repay your investment cost.
In a vacuum dryer, temp can be increased to 100°C - needs a vacuum to prevent surface oxidation.
NOTE: Even without showing foaming, moisture content can be too excessive causing brittle mouldings which look fine.
Above is a snippet.
