Speciality engineering thermoplastics are steadily gaining importance in a wide variety of high temperature applications due to their excellent performance char acteristics at elevated temperatures. A knowledge of the rheological behaviour of these speciality polymers over an industrially relevant range of shear rate and temperature is essential m the design of polymer processing equipment, process optimization and trouble-shooting. A method proposed earlier has been extended to estimate the… Expand
