Abstract

In this work reliable experimental data for three semicrystalline polymers (iPP, PA6, PET) crystallised under pressure and high cooling rates are supplied. These results were achieved on the basis of a model experiment where drastic "controlled" solidification conditions are applied. The final objective was to quantify the effect of two typical operating conditions (pressure and cooling rate) on the final properties and morphology of the obtained product. The influence of processing conditions on some macroscopically relevant properties, such as density and micro hardness is stressed, together with the influence of processing conditions on the product morphology, investigated by means of Wide Angle X-Ray Scattering (WAXS). Results on the iPP samples display a decrease of density and micro hardness, due to the pressure increase, in a wide range of cooling rates (from 0.01 to 20°C/s). PET samples exhibit an opposite behaviour with density and micro hardness increasing at higher pressures in the whole range of cooling rates investigated. PA6 samples behave similarly to PET displaying a less significant increase of density and micro hardness with pressure than PET samples.
