SPI/SPE Plastics Show and Conference East.


The Society of the Plastics Industry, Inc. (SPI), and the Society of Plastics Engineers will cosponsor the SPI/SPE Plastics Show and Conference--East at the Philadelphia Civic Center, September 12-14, 1989. "Plastics East"--the fourth joint venture by the industry's two leading associations--will provide a forum for knowledge sharing with industry leaders.

SPI will conduct the show, an exhibition of more than 200 companies and organizations from throughout the plastics industry. Continuing a tradition started two years ago at Plastics/West in Las Vegas, the self-contained Thermoforming Pavilion will again be part of the show. More than 25 companies will be grouped together in the pavilion, to provide visitors with an in-depth look at the thermoforming industry's latest developments in state-of-the-art processing machinery, moldmaking, materials, and auxiliary equipment.

Technical papers will be presented at two sessions on Tuesday afternoon (Sept. 12), four sessions throughout the day on Wednesday (Sept. 13), and at a morning session on Thursday (Sept. 14).



2:00 p.m. Technology for Recycling Post-Consumer and Industrial Waste Plastics Into New, High Quality Products K. Carrier--Innovative Plastic Products Abstract not available at press time. 2:30 p.m. Physical Characteristics and Properties of Profile Extrusions Produced From Post-Consumer Commingled Plastic Wastes D.R. Morrow, R.W. Renfree, and T.J. Nosker--Center for Plastics Recycling Research The Center for Plastics Recycling Research (CPRR) at Rutgers University, New Jersey, has been conducting pioneering R&D activities focused on establishing technology to facilitate widespread recycling of post-consumer plastic wastes. A major portion of the development effort has focused on reclamation of commingled plastics through production of lumber-like profiles feedstocks, using the ET/1 extrusion-molding machine. Initial results are presented, and physical property data are utilized to illustrate the nonhomogeneous nature of some of the product samples. Variations of physical properties of the products with changes in feedstock composition are also discussed. 3:00 p.m. Effects of Additives on Mechanical Properties of Wood Fiber/High-Density Polyethylene Composites S. Selke, K. Yam, and K. Nieman--Michigan State University Few plastics, with the exception of PET, are actively sought and recycled. HDPE is easily identifiable and is readily recyclable. Markets to utilize recycled HDPE are being investigated. Some markets, such as food and beverage containers, are considered off limits because of contamination concerns. HDPE is limited in use for structural applications by its low stiffness and high creep properties; however, by reinforcing the polymer with a stiff, strong filler, this limitation can be overcome. This study investigates the potential for improving fiber dispersion in and adhesion to the HDPE matrix by adding a third component, with the goal of obtaining a composite structure with improved impact and tensile strengths. 3:30 p.m. Title not available at press time. 4:00 p.m. Value-Added Recycling Emphasizing PET and EPS A.G. Staniulis--MRC Polymers While the energy crisis of the 1970s can be looked upon as a temporary issue, the solid waste disposal problem can in no way be considered a temporary inconvenience. One of the long-term solutions to plastic solid waste pollution is recycling. The success or failure of the recycling effort depends upon the economic viability of the company doing the recycling. For a variety of reasons, among them strong industry support and economic feasibility, large quantities of fairly uniform plastic waste material that was destined for the landfill is being recovered--the PET beverage bottle. Developmental recycling programs are being implemented to prevent another high-volume plastic material--expanded polystyrene--from ending up in the landfills. The ultimate success of EPS recovery hinges on the ability of the recycling company to turn a profit.


2:00 p.m. Improved Hydrolytic Resistance of Filled Organic Polymer Composites Using Modified Organofunctional Silanes A.D. Ulrich and W.G. Joslyn--PCR, Inc. Organofunctional silane coupling agents provide a mechanism for chemical coupling of inorganic substrates and organic polymers. This coupling phenomenon provides superior adhesion to substrates. Better adhesion leads to improved physical and electrical properties. Silane coupling agents provide a chemical bond that retains composite properties in harsh environments. Superior properties plus property retention combine to make possible the design of smaller and lighter components for aircraft, automobiles, computers, appliances, and other items. 2:30 p.m. Effects of Anti-Block/Processing Aid Combinations on LLDPE Blown Film Extrusion T.J. Blong and D. Duchesne--3M Co. The paper examines the physical parameters of anti-blocking agents that affect the functioning of fluorocarbon elastomer processing additives. The effectiveness of the fluorocarbon elastomer, when paired with anti-blocking agents of specific character, was investigated in an LLDPE resin using capillary rheometry. In addition, several commodity-type anti-blocking agents were evaluated under blown film extrusion. Methods to avoid or minimize interactions between the anti-blocking agent and fluorocarbon elastomer processing additive are explored. 3:00 p.m. Improving the Processing of Thermoplastic Compounds With Modifiers J.P. Vander Kooi and D.R. Hall--Struktol Co. This study was conducted to determine if processing agents can be used in compounding to modify and improve certain properties associated with filled and unfilled polymers. 3:30 p.m. Title not available at press time. 4:00 p.m. Anhydride-Based Coupling Agents for Filled Polypropylene D.J. Olsen and K. Hyche--Eastman Chemical Products, Inc. Minerals fillers, such as mica, are known to provide improvements in physical properties in many different polymer systems while lowering the overall cost of a formulation. However, dispersion of mica and other mineral fillers into nonpolar matrix resins such as polypropylene is often difficult because of the polar nature of the filler surface. Coupling agents are often used to overcome these problems. This paper examines the effect of changes in the viscoelasticity (molecular weight) and acid number of Epolene E-43 on coupler effectiveness in mica-filled polypropylene 4:30 p.m. Performance Enhancement of Glass-Fiber-Reinforced Polypropylene With Acid-Modified Polypropylene R.C. Constable, J.A. Humenik, and A.M. Adur--BP Performance Polymers Inc. Chemically modified polyolefins (CMPs) have been used extensively as coupling agents in glass-fiber-reinforced polypropylene. The effect of an acrylic-acid-grafted polypropylene. Polybond, on the physical and thermal characteristics of twin-screw extrusion compounded, glass-fiber-reinforced polypropylene containing various levels of CMP is studied. Improvements obtained in the physical and thermal properties of composites containing Polybond can be attributed to the formation of chemical bonds between the acrylic acid side chains of the CMP and the surface-modified glass fiber, and co-crystallization of the CMP polypropylene backbone with the rest of the polypropylene matrix, thus providing true chemical coupling between the two phases.


9:30 a.m. The Effect of Injection Molding Parameters on the Properties of Molded Parts G.A. Campbell, H. Devanathan, S. Settlemire, P. Sweeney, K. Klewicki, and T. Kenny--Clarkson University, and J.D. Small and A.L. Fricke--University of Florida Until recently, many publications maintained that molding parameters do not affect the properties of injection molded parts. The authors found that the conditions of molding do affect properties such as elongation, modulus, recoverable strain, and Poison's ratio.

Experiments were done with high impact polystyrene and polystyrene with calcium carbonate molded under different conditions of melt and mold temperatures. A new technique for determining the Poisson's ration in real time has been developed. The authors found that there is a strong correlation between the modulus and the recoverable engineering strain, and that the true stress versus strain is also a strong function of process conditions. They show that many important properties of the polymers they molded and tested are process-sensitive. 10:00 a.m. Evaluation of an Injection Molding Mixing Screw K.A. Fraser, D.J. Coyle, and I. Bruker--General Electric The performance of a slotted-flight screw is evaluated in terms of melt temperature homogeneity as well as melt pumping capacity in comparison with a single-flighted, single-stage standard screw. A finite element analysis of the flow field in slotted-flight screws is performed to elucidate the experimental results. 10:30 a.m. Title not available at press time. 11:00 a.m. Product Design for Economical Injection Molding--The Influence of Part Shape on Cycle Time C. Poli, J.E. Sunderland, S.M. Kuo, and C.J. Yu--University of Massachusetts at Amherst The final unit cost of an injection molded part is made up largely of three principal cost contributions, namely, material or resin cost, die or tooling cost, and equipment operating cost. These three costs are influenced by the part's geometric complexity, size, and material. This paper describes the progress being made in the area of equipment operating cost (cycle time). 11:30 a.m. Designing Premature Failure out of Injection Molded parts K.S. Mehta--Mobay Corp. Abstract not available at press time. 12:00 noon. Title not available at press time.


9:30 a.m. Overview of Photodegradable and Biodegradable Polymers and Additives R. Narayan--Purdue University Abstract not available at press time. 10:00 a.m. Modified Starch-Based Biodegradable Plastics W.J. Maddever--St. Lawrence Starch Co. Ltd., and G.M. Chapman--St. Lawrence Group Ltd. The use of a renewable natural polymer in the manufacture of plastic products has long been sought, and the search intensified following the oil crisis of the early 1970s. Although modified cellulosics have been used, particularly in packaging films and fibers, only recently has the use of starch been widely commercialized.

Using starch as a cost-effective additive was developed in the 1970s, but it was also realized at that time that standard starch was unsuitable. This led to the discovery of the benefits of modifying the starch/polymer interface by making the normally hydrophilic starch surface hydrophobic, and the need to reduce the moisture content of starch so that it could be processed in polymer melts above 160 [degrees] C. 10:30 a.m. Packaging Opportunities for Water-Soluble, Biodegradable Films J. Rossman--Chris Craft Industrial Products Water-soluble films produced from a variety of polymeric resins are available to satisfy highly specialized packaging needs. The films are tough, durable, and suitable for use on most conventional packaging machines using heat- or wet-seal methods to form the package. Yet, in the presence of water, the films dissolve and disappear.

Historical applications include the packaging of premeasured bakery additives (edible, soluble films), alkaline dyes and pigments, toxic or hazardous chemicals, agricultural chemicals, toilet bowl cleaners, and household detergents and cleaning products. Reasons for using these soluble films include human safety, economy in premeasuring expensive ingredients, and easier handling of messy products (e.g. dyes). Considering today's serious concerns over environmental and landfill issues, water-soluble films offer biodegradability, immediate on-site package disposal, and reduction of contaminated secondary packaging (e.g. a polyethylene bag contaminated with a toxic pesticide) that would otherwise require a toxic material landfill. Many variations of existing water-soluble films can be developed to meet special needs for package design, solubility, and disposability. 11:00 a.m. Biodegradable Natural-Synthetic Polymer Graft Copolymers R. Narayan, et al--Purdue University Abstract not available at press time.


2:00 p.m. Computer-Aided Design Software for Cooling System in Injection Molding H. Himasekhar, C.A. Hieber, and K.K. Wang--Cornell University Cooling-system design affects both part quality and productivity. A rapid cooling increases productivity, and a uniform and balanced cooling improves part quality by reducing differential shrinkage, internal stresses, and warpage. Hence, the design objective of the cooling system is to achieve rapid but uniform cooling by employing a sufficient number of cooling channels in suitable locations. For this optimum design, the designer needs an analysis tool that can predict the total heat load, cycle time, temperature, and temperature gradients at the mold-melt interface. 2:30 p.m. An Intelligent System for Resin Selection W.R. Jong and K.K. Wang--Cornell University This study presents a system developed by the Cornell Injection Molding Program (CIMP) at Cornell University for proper selection of injection molding-grade resins. The resin-selection program is a subsystem of an overall expert system for injection molding being developed by CIMP making use of some artificial intelligence (AI) techniques.

The current resin-selection system covers more than 5000 injection molding-grade resins with about 60 associated properties for each. The database is divided hierarchically into three levels: the generic name, the manufacturer's name, and the specific trade name. In operation, the user can specify multiple criteria for selection with an assignable weighting factor to each criterion based on their relative importance to meet the design requirements. The system will automatically highlight all qualified resins and recommend the best choice. The user can make comparisons at all three levels based on a specific property. The results are displayed in color graphics, including viscosity curves and specific heat curves. 3:00 p.m. A Computer Simulation of the Injection Molding Process--Including Filling, Packing, and Solidification E. Chu and M.R. Kamal--McGill University, and S.K. Goyal--Polysar Ltd. This study presents a detailed two-dimensional mathematical

model to describe all three stages of the injection molding cycle, i.e., filling, packaging, and solidification, in a rectangular cavity. The treatment, referred to as McKam-2, incorporates important factors, such as viscoelasticity, non-isothermality, fountain flow, crystallization kinetics, stress relaxation, and more. Special consideration is also given to the slip boundary conditions at the melt/wall interface. The predictive capabilities of McKam-2 include velocities, pressures, temperatures, shear stresses, normal stress differences, and the skin formation throughout the filling and packing stages, and pressure, temperature, and crystallinity distributions during solidification. The predicted values will be compared with experimental data recorded under the same processing conditions, when applicable. 3:30 p.m. Experimental Verification of Fiber Orientation as Predicted by Computer Simulation K.R. Squire, C.L. Vorres, D.E. Yuhas--Allied-Signal Corp., and C.S. Lee--Allied Signal Engineered Plastics A description of preliminary results of a research program studying the microstructure of injection molded parts will be presented. The work attempts to measure the microstructure of injection molded parts both destructively and nondestructively; predict how this microstructure is formed during injection molding; and predict how process-induced microstructure affects void formation, shrinkage, warpage, and the mechanical properties of injection molded parts. 4:00 p.m. Computer-Aided Modeling of Polymer Processing: A Review A.A. Tseng, P.F. Sun, and S.P. Kolluri--Drexel University In this study, computer-aided modeling and its application to polymer processing are presented. A brief discussion of the problems in polymer processing modeling is followed by the formulation of equations or models governing flow and heat transfer in polymers. The current state and future possibilities of expert systems for developing modeling for polymer processing are discussed. The study concludes with an assessment of several commercial software packages available for polymer process modeling. 4:30 p.m. Title not available at press time.
