How does the temperature of the injection mold affect the plastic parts?

There are many reasons that affect the cooling of the injection mold, such as the shape of the plastic part and the design of the parting surface, the type, temperature and flow rate of the cooling medium, the geometric parameters of the cooling pipe, the layout of our space, the mold material, the melt temperature, and the requirements for the plastic part, which all have a certain impact on the temperature of the injection mold and the plastic part. Now let’s take a closer look.

1. Lower mold temperature can reduce the molding shrinkage of plastic parts.

2. Uniform mold temperature, short cooling time and fast injection speed can reduce the warpage of plastic parts.

3. For crystalline polymers, increasing the mold temperature can stabilize the size of the plastic parts and avoid post crystallization, but it will lead to the defects of prolonged molding cycle and brittle plastic parts.

4. With the increase of crystallinity of crystalline polymer, the stress cracking resistance of plastics decreases, so it is beneficial to reduce the mold temperature. However, for the amorphous polymer with high viscosity, because its resistance to cracking is directly related to the internal stress of the plastic part, it is beneficial to increase the mold temperature and filling speed and reduce the feeding time.

5. If we raise the mold temperature, we can improve the surface quality of plastic parts. The determination of mold temperature is in the process of injection molding. The mold temperature can directly affect the plastic filling, molding, molding cycle and molding quality.
