COOLING AND THERMOPLASTIC MOLDING
Within the context of thermoplastic molding, the unique heat transfer characteristics of the Isobar© super-thermal conductor, when designed into the mold, ensure that energy build-up on the mold face is rapidly directed to the mold’s cooling channels. The result is faster, more uniform cooling to the entire mold surface, which allows for shorter molding cycles. Rapid, uniform surface cooling also eliminates hot and cold spots on the working face, which in turn results in molded parts that are free from short shots, irregular shrinkage, and molded-in residual stress and warp. It is not necessary to have the Isobar© in direct contact with a waterline to effect cooling; although Isobars© can be incorporated into the cooling channel, in may cases they need only be in proximity to a water line to promote effective cooling.
