One of the most valuable applications of E-BEAM processing involves relatively low levels of electron beams to bring about subtle yet beneficial changes in the melt rheology of raw plastics resins. We have decades of polymer rheology experience and that translates to noticeable improvements in material properties.
Electron beams: A Superior Rheology modifier
For cross-linkable plastics, the exposure of pellets to the electron beam will increase molecular weight and melt viscosity and lower melt index or melt flow rate – without creating a crosslinked matrix. While several “thermochemical” options exist for making controlled rheology resin pellets, E-BEAM processing makes notable benefits economically available for small, medium, and large applications.
