“Using its proprietary plastic injection molding process, Xtreme RFID is able to expand its product line by taking full advantage of Fortron ICE 716A, which belongs to our new generation of PPS and optimizes their process with low mold temperatures,” said Edward Hallahan, Fortron PPS global marketing manager. “Fortron ICE technology enables full crystallinity at lower temperatures while maintaining PPS high-performance characteristics for excellent chemical and thermal resistance, high hardness, rigidity and dimensional stability, and low creep and moisture absorption.”New Fortron ICE grades can help customers stay competitive by reducing cycle times, scrap rates and overall production costs, as well as improve flatness and enable easier demolding. Injection molders that use hot molding systems, operating at temperatures greater than 135 degrees Celsius (275 degrees Fahrenheit), can:
- reduce molding cycle times, thereby providing production cost savings and increasing net operating capacity;
- improve demolding of parts, thus decreasing the number of broken parts and reducing costly rework.
- full crystallization at lower temperatures, opening new opportunities without the additional cost of hot molding equipment.
