Processing

Fast and easy processing

Arnite® is easy to process, with excellent flow characteristics, and high crystallinity to ensure rapid cooling times.

Arnite is extremely easy to work with, and can be injection molded quickly and easily. Typical processing temperatures for Arnite T are 235°C to 275°C, whereas for

Arnite A, we advise a processing temperature range from 265°C to 295°C. Molds can be heated to ensure high crystallinity and a better surface finish (80°C to 135°C for Arnite A, and 30°C to 100° for Arnite T.

Eliminating moisture

During processing it’s critical to eliminate moisture. Which is why Arnite comes in sealed bags and is ready to be molded without any pre-drying – saving valuable time and money.

Even a small amount of moisture absorbed by the granules can result in weak moldings, so once the bag is opened, it’s very important to pre-dry granules that could have been exposed to the atmosphere beforehand.
