Batch processing Batch processing is execution of a series of programs jobs on a computer without manual intervention.
VDI test specimen. Material Properties Figure 2: The demands on soft TPE materials are growing constantly. When these materials are used outside of a device, in most cases, they come in contact with substances like skin oil, sunscreen cream, hand lotion, etc.
The requirements for materials used in the described applications include: As a result, TPS-based materials become swollen and their mechanical properties decline during the product life cycle. Also, the surface feel of the TPS molded article is rubbery. Those materials offer better chemical resistance compared to TPS.
Furthermore, the injection molding of these materials is challenging due to poor processability. TPC material is also known for its high chemical resistance. LSR offers very good mechanical properties, combined with excellent chemical resistance at a low hardness range.
However, since molding LSR involves a cross-linking reaction, its cycle time is relatively long in comparison to conventional injection molding processes, and special equipment is necessary to process LSR, thus increasing production costs.
Blends of pre-crosslinked silicone resin dispersed in a TPU matrix can be molded using a standard molding machine.
The screw rotation speed was min For the adhesion test specimens, a two-shot injection molding machine was used. Hardness was measured according to ISO on three stacked 2-mm plaques. The adhesion force was determined via a peel test using the VDI method by peeling the TPE off the hard substrate.
The force which is necessary to separate the TPE from the hard substrate was measured over a mm peel length.
For testing the chemical resistance, the material was immersed in artificial skin grease, sebum, for 14 days. The volumes, tensile strength, and elongation at break of the specimens were determined before and after the exposure, as described in ISO Chemical Sebum Resistance The materials were immersed in sebum for 14 days at room temperature.
Volume, tensile strength, and elongation at break were determined before and after the soaking in sebum. To get a better understanding of the chemical resistance, a TPS and a silicone-TPU alloy were employed for comparison.
Figures 3 and 4 show the relative change of weight and volume and the change of tensile strength and elongation at break, respectively, after immersion in sebum for 14 days.
The SBC material loses its stability, and shows a dramatic drop in mechanical properties due to the absorption of sebum. UV Resistance The additional property required for the application is color fastness upon exposure to sunlight. Conclusion Copec was developed to fill the gap between neat TPU and a TPS with respect to hardness, wear resistance, chemical resistance, and adhesion.
In this study, the properties of Copec materials were evaluated with particular emphasis on chemical resistance and adhesion to polar substrates. Based on the fact that Copec materials provide comparable or improved mechanical properties compared to TPS and a silicone-TPU alloy, and exhibit superior sebum resistance and bondability to polar substrates, Copec is the suitable material of choice for applications requiring such characteristics, such as consumer electronics.

Executive Summary. Our Nation's health service delivery systems face growing challenges to enhance quality while reducing costs. Lean/Toyota Production Systems (TPS) is a process redesign strategy developed in manufacturing that promises to help health care .
If you file your TPS re-registration application late, processing may be delayed and can lead to gaps in your work authorization. Late Initial Filing for TPS You can apply for TPS for the first time during an extension of your country’s TPS designation period.
