As the tooling die gap is reduced to create a thinner parison, the pressure drop increases.
The coordinate y is measured from the die gap centerline.
Hence, to eliminate tearing one must always thin the die gap.
Additionally, the deformation of nuclei in the die gap is described by use of the capillary number Ca and correlated with the cell density of the foam sheets.
Thus, a schematic sketch of a single-layer slot die gap with all relevant parameters is shown in Fig.
An optimum die gap is particularly advantageous if the molecular orientation between die and calibrating unit is to be kept low, in order, for example, to minimize shrinkage.
