Material Flow Behavior     

福彩3d三天计划两胆码GLS overmolding TPEs are shear responsive, thus their viscosity is reduced when they are processed at high shear rates. This allows for easy flow into thin-walled sections commonly encountered in over-molding applications. The figure below illustrates the effect of shear rate on the viscosity of GLS overmolding TPEs. For the viscosity of a specific grade, refer to the individual Product Technical Datasheet.
