Debunking the Myths about Drying

Gentle and Efficient Drying of Moisture-Sensitive Polymers

Debunking the Myths about Drying

If plastics are insufficiently or incorrectly dried, the result is processing problems and rejects. The amount of moisture polymers can absorb, and how quickly they can be dried varies greatly. Studies on PA6, PET, PLA and PHB help us to understand what influence the material properties and the drying parameters have on the drying rate.
