Injection Molding Considerations for Eastman MXF Compounded Products


As manufacturers look to develop plastic parts with greater chemical resistance to disinfects, molders are taking a closer look at the Eastman MXF portfolio. But how well do these compounded copolyesters work with existing tools? For those accustomed to molding polycarbonate, this paper reviews several injection molding considerations when evaluating the feasibility of trials with MXF compounded copolyesters. It discusses simulation, drying, screw design, mold design, gating, runners, sprues, and part cooling.
