In this process, a gel-fiber is formed from a semi-dilute solution, resulting in a lower density of chain entanglements relative to melt spinning which promotes greater drawability in the hot drawing stages [2].
Drawability is expressed as the limiting draw ratio as follows:
The change in drawability leads to more uniform thickness in the oriented polymer produced in the drawing process.
In fact, the other factor called drawability is equally important.
If properties like adhesion or deep drawability are desired, application of these products can be advantageous.
The packaging material's easy drawability, quick softening and low seal initiation temperature contribute to the speed of the operation.
These are cleaner and more ductile to allow for improved drawability and the lightweighting development.
It was reported, however, that increased molecular orientation of the extrudate during jet stretching would reduce the elongation at break and consequently decrease drawability [6].
A stretch-wrap cast film grade for high-speed applications that boasts much better toughness, less leftover unsaturation, good drawability, and 20-25% higher extensibility than metallocene resins.
It offers increased hot drawability and tenacity, plus reduced dusting to minimize wear on equipment and splitting.
The reports also states that the forming lubricant quality influences drawability.
