THICKNESS EFFECTS ON MATERIAL PROPERTIES IN A GLASS/THERMOPLASTIC P.E.T. INJECTION MOLDING COMPOUND
Rynite 545, a commercial short glass fiber/thermoplastic polyethylene terepthalate system, was injection molded into end-gated rectangular plaques of various thicknesses. The plaques were sectioned and characterized by scanning electron microscopy and by mechanical and thermal expansion tests.
