Melting temperature tests
There are different types of plastic and each plastic has its own melting temperature. You can easily find this online. However there is a big difference between the melting range between different temperatures, does it get liquid when it melts and what if you burn it? There a re a lot of stages the material can be molded. We want to visualise this. Making it easier to understand the behaviors of plastic on a specific temperature.
Plan: Make a few simple molds which will be filled with 50 Gram of Plastic(from different types) They will be heated for 40 minutes at different temperatures to see how it behaves
Depends a little bit what kind of technique/machine you are using. The metling temperature is around 260 degrees. However compared to others types of plastic with PET this is very crucial. Couple of degrees above or below make it unnamable –is that a word? You got a picture of your machine?
What would you say is the best temperature to make PET malleable?
My senior design team is making a similar, automated machine, to recycle from home.
