Comparison of interfaces in welded and injection molded parts
The formation of interfaces cannot be avoided in joining processes of thermoplastics. Thereby the strength at interfaces depends strongly on the joining method. To clarify the relationship between processes and structural properties, vibration welding was compared with assembly injection molding. To classify the interfaces in terms of strength, the failure behavior of thin sections was observed by using a tensile test coupled with transmitted light microscopy.

The Journal of Plastics Technology is a peer reviewed internet periodical published under the auspices of the Scientific Alliance of Polymer Technology (WAK)
International Polymer Processing, the journal of the Polymer Processing Society, is a discussion forum for the world-wide community of engineers and scientists in the field of polymer processing.
The journal covers research and industrial application in the very specific areas of designing polymer products, processes, processing machinery and equipment.
The Journal of Plastics Technology is indexed in SCOPUS, the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature.
