Material Notes:
Capron 8331G HS Blend is a 14% glass fiber reinforced, heat stabilized, polyamide 6 molding compound developed for applications requiring improved toughness in combination with a balance of strength, stiffness and excellent moldability/surface aesthetics. It is also available in non-heat stabilized (Capron 8331G Blend) and/or pigmented versions.Capron 8331G HS Blend is generally recommended for application such as front wheel chair wheels, bicycle wheels, power tool housings, clips and fasteners, hose clamps and window hardware.Data provided by Allied Signal.Processing: Max. water content 0.12%. Product is supplied in sealed containers and drying is not required. If drying becomes necessary, a dehumidifying or desiccant dryer operating at 85°C (185 °F). Is recommended. Drying time is dependent on moisture level.Melt Temperature: 270-295 degC (518-563 degF). Mold Temperature: 80-95 degC (176-203 degF). Injection and Packing Pressure: 35-125 bar (500-1500psi) This product can be processed over a wide range of mold temperatures; however, for applications where aesthetics critical, a mold surface temperature of 80-95 degC (176-203 degF) is required. 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. A maximum of 3.5 bar (50 psi) is recommended to minimize glass fiber breakage. Fast fill rates are recommended to insure uniform melt delivery to the cavity and prevent premature freezing. Surface appearance is directly affected by injection rate. Capron® is no longer a part of the BASF standard line. The BASF nylon products have been consolidated in the Ultramid ® line.
