Applying Drying Fundamentals to Solve Common Drying Problems
As soon as an engineering polymer is manufactured and exposed to the atmosphere, it begins to adsorb moisture. The natural attraction between polymer chains and water molecules is what causes hygroscopic resins, exposed to a humid atmosphere, to take up and retain water. It is also what makes drying them difficult.
This white paper will explore the difficulty of drying resins and how, by applying the fundamentals, you can troubleshoot potential causes of plastics drying issues.
