Injection Mold Shrinkage

Injection molding is a technique used to make parts from thermoplastic materials and involves molten plastic being injected into a mold at high pressure. ARDL provides testing of thermoplastics to understand the shrinkage of the materials during injection molding. ARDL’s injection mold shrinkage testing addresses issues where mold and melt temperatures, fill times, and packing conditions may affect the molding of parts and test specimens.
