  • To reduce the cooling time in soft tooling process, one of the possible solutions is the use of composite mold materials, but that may affect melt mold flow properties. Therefore, a study on equivalent viscosity of melt mold material, which primarily influences the flow ability is essential. In this work, we have carried out an experimental study on equivalent viscosity of flexible mold materials (such as polyurethane and silicone rubber, which are of particular type) reinforced with highly… CONTINUE READING
