Previously we discussed a principle that employing a mold temperature above the glass-transition temperature ([T.sub.g]) of the polymer ensures a degree of crystallinity high enough to provide for dimensional stability, even if the part must be used at elevated temperatures.
He says the resin has a glass-transition temperature 160[degrees]C, which is higher than other PPAs, including existing ForTii grades, and at least 80[degrees]C higher than PA66.
Ultem EXSP0023 features a glass-transition temperature (Tg) of 245[degrees]C, has a dielectric strength of 4,700 V/mil and good tear resistance.
It produces a glass-transition temperature of more than 120 [degrees] C, and high bond strength to glass ceramic, metals and most plastics--allowing it to pass the most stringent specifications for both single- and multimode terminations.
Making use of the fact that the glass-transition temperature ([T.sub.g]) is cooling-rate dependent allows one to introduce a cooling-rate parameter into a P-V-T equation.
The glass-transition temperature may be determined by taking the middle of the change in baseline (half-height method).
With Vicat B120 softening temperatures as high as 190 C/374 F and glass-transition temperature (Tg) of up to 195 C/383 F, the CXT resins can withstand demanding assembly processes, such as cold reflow or wave soldering onto printed circuit boards.
