Material Handling
This product is supplied in sealed containers and drying prior to processing is not required. However, higher moisture is the primary cause of processing problems. If drying becomes necessary, a dehumidifying or desiccant dryer operating at 80°C (176°F) is recommended. Drying time is dependent on moisture level. Further information concerning safe handling procedures can be obtained from the Safety Data Sheet. Alternatively, please contact your AdvanSix representative.

Extrusion Guidelines

Melt Viscosity vs. Temperature
Polymer Melt Temperature: 220°C (428°F)
Two main factors affect the melt viscosity (stiffness or fluidity of the melt):
1. The molecular weight (MW) of the resin: Higher MW resins will have a higher melt viscosity than lower MW resins.
2. Temperature of the melt for any given MW resin: Higher process temperatures will provide a more fluid melt viscosity than lower process temperatures.

Typical Profile
Extruder Barrel Temperature settings 240-290 °C (464-554 °F)

Note: The values in this data sheet are for natural color resins only. Colorants or other additives may alter some or all of these properties. The data listed here fall within the normal range of product properties, but should not be used to establish specification limits nor used alone as the basis of design.
